What version of Flex should I use with the Library?

The library is maintained so that it targets the latest version of Apache Flex.

However, if a new version of Apache Flex is released, it may take some time for the Ardisia Component Library to be made compatible with the new version.

In general, the differences between Apache Flex versions have not been breaking, and have not had a big impact on compatibility or functionality of the library. Therefore, using an older version of Apache Flex with the library will probably work fine, or require minor adjustments to the code, but this not promised.
