Vine updates to the Flex 4

From today on Vine Toolkit supports the Flex 4 compiler and syntax. Unfortunately Flex 4 is not fully backward compatible so your existing Flex 3 apps need to be enhanced. Currently we provide two options, use Vine bundles ( version <= 1.2 ) with Flex 3 SDK or latest Vine from the SVN with the Flex 4 SDK.

New development tasks for the nearest future

Currently we are focused on improving and updating the following parts of Vine:

  • adding support for Tomcat 6 and Liferay 6,
  • implementing messaging for the BlazeDs/Flex components,
  • migrating to the Flex 4 since it is the latest stable version of Flex.

Vine Toolkit 1.2

We are pleased to announce a new stable release of Vine Toolkit. The main feature is much anticipated Liferay 5.2.3 support ( as well as maintaining the Gridsphere 3.1 support ).
