End of the last year (Nov – 2011) Adobe planed to donate Flex to Apache foundation and now Flex is officially accepted by Apache Software Foundation(ASF). For more info on this check the mail thread conversation on voting at Apache – http://markmail.org/message/7q22pdviyxvkwbf5.

This year 2012 is the first year of Flex to live outside Adobe and managed by open source Apache Foundation. In the other side Adobe is also planning to renovate the Flex compiler and they are researching on making it possible to convert ActionScript code to JavaScript code. In this way we can develop HTML/HTML5 based application using ActionScript code. The open source movement is very popular and this is strengthen every year. Now onwards Apache is the the future for Flex. Apache Software Foundation was founded and is governed by the common people that really understand open source development model. It is one of the most respected software foundations in the world.

    In a year or two we will definitely get to know about the fate of flex. I would definitely appreciate that there is some positive work going on to convert the AS code to JS compatible mode for HTML 5 Apps.
