Apache Flex 4.9.0
This is first release after the Apache Flex 4.8.0 parity release.
The official Apache distribution is the source kit which can contain only source.
Because of this, and various licensing constraints, there must be a few differences.
====> Please see the README, especially the "Install Prerequisites" section. <====
Differences from Apache Flex 4.8.0:
- New locales for Apache Flex including Australian, British, Canadian, Greek, Switzerland (German) and Portuguese
- Apache Flex SDK can be compiled for any version of the Flash Player from 10.2 to 11.5
- New PostCodeFormatter and PostCodeValidator classes for international postcode formatting and validation
- New VectorList and VectorCollection classes for lists and collections of vectors
- New version of the TLF (Text Layout Framework), the TLF 3.0.33 source code is now included as it is now part
of the Apache Flex donation.
- Can use Java 7 to compile SDK (see README for instructions)
- Many improvements and updates to Mustella tests
- An SDK installer has also been created and is the recommended way of installing the Apache Flex SDK in an IDE.

Differences from Adobe Flex 4.6.0:
- BlazeDS integration is an optional feature (Adobe license)
- Adobe embedded font support is an optional feature
- the lib directory has been restructured
-- lib (jars built from source)
-- external (other Apache jars or ones with compatible licenses)
-- optional (optional jars with incompatible licenses)
- the default linkage is -static-link-runtime-shared-libraries=true
- there are no longer Adobe signed RSLs (swz files) in frameworks/rsls
- the frameworks/rsls directory contains unsigned RSL for libraries we build
- the frameworks/osmf src is not included which means there is not an osmf RSL.
- the ASDoc in the asdoc package no longer has active links for Adobe Flash,
Adobe Air, the Open Source Media Framework (OSMF) or Text Layout Format (TLF).
We hope to correct this in a future release.
