A Hidden framework in the Flash Community

Recently I read some article about a hidden / two year old Action Script 3.0 framework, which was pretty surprise. Thought of share with you all,

Name : FlightBorn : 2008

Here is an overview of Flight Framework,

About Flight Framework,

The Flight Framework is the evolution of an ActionScript framework that has been around for a few years. It was originally designed for web-based, design-centric applications such as product printers and book builders. Even now the framework ships with the CommandHistory – an entire solution for undo and redo – and other practical utilities that strengthen its offering.

Flight Framework maintains an emphasis on supporting capable clients: Flex and Flash applications that are much more than just pretty faces to server implementations. Through features like domains (modular MVC systems) and a prescribed structure, the framework transforms component scripting into real application development.

Hope this framework will add more values to your Flash / Flex applications development.  😉
