Flex Goes Open Source (MPL)

This is a big deal, and it is likely going to hit the blogs all day. Adobe has officially announced that most of the Flex SDK is going open source using the Mozilla Public License.

What is being open sourced:

  • MXML Compiler
  • AS3 Compiler
  • Flex Command Line Debugger
  • View Source Utilities
  • Web Tier Compiler Modules
  • Automated Testing

This is awesome news. With Flex going open source Adobe is displaying how serious they are about capturing the RIA space and how strongly they believe in the community. The future looks bright for the Flash platform!
