Today I saw that Simon is back in action, which I am very happy about!
However I found it quite surprising, that he apparently closed all Flash related Github issues with the argument “Moving towards Haxe 4, we will no longer look into fixing old Flash/SWF issues.”.
I cannot remember seeing any official statements or announcements by the HaxeFoundation to retire the Flash target, so I am really puzzled that such a fundamental decision bubbles up through comments in closed Github issues. While my last post Where is Haxe heading? received quite some attention in the community, apparently little to nothing has really changed since then regarding official communication by HF. The Haxe roadmap https://haxe.org/community/roadmap.html is still completely out of date. We are still left wondering what happend/is happening to the CS/Java targets for which development seems to be completely stalled.
ATM I find it a bummer that we are about to loose first class support of the Flash target because FlashDevelop+FlashDebugger is/was for me the easiest way to get realtime debbuging working without much hassle. I also believe Haxe+Air is still a thing, or not?
