I noticed that there is now a message indicating that the code at the openfl/swf repository on GitHub is deprecated “until version 5.0”. I have no idea what that means. Could the community please clarify?
Specifically, my questions are:
- will OpenFL continue to be able to read from SWFs, both in the short and long term?
- is responsibility for the code that provides this functionality being shifted to a separate entity?
- is the code being collapsed into the main OpenFL repository? Is it being rewritten and thrown out?
- when OpenFL 5.0 is released, will the code at openfl/swf become un-deprecated?
I’ve tried to follow along with some other discussions that are related to this but I’m not seeing a clear, distinct answer. I have only just gotten a basic demo working following the tutorial at http://www.openfl.org/learn/tutorials/using-swf-assets/ , so a lot of the internal terminology (like
NMEPreloader) is foreign to me. My apologies if this is obvious to most people.
Thanks in advance.
