Adobe to open source Flex framework

Adobe has today announced its plans to release the Flex source code under the terms of the Mozilla Public License, giving developers the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing development of the framework.

The strategy will mean a closer working relationship between the development team and end user which, in turn, Adobe hopes will attract new developers, improve the framework architecture and lead to opportunities for collaboration with other open source projects.

Adobe will continue to offer a commercial version of the Flex SDK.

More information on the move can be found in the Adobe press release and on the Adobe Labs pages.
