Well, I spoke too soon in my last blog entry. While this fix was checked in, it was reverted a few days later. Per some internal discussions regarding new bugs that came up after the fix as well as performance ramifications, it was decided that this was too much of a risk to change. We are hitting the end of Flex 3, so, major changes aren’t being made anymore. Hopefully, we can find a better solution next release since I still believe that this is a problem that we should fix.
So, thanks to those who commented on my last entry. You were pretty much dead on about some of the problems that this change would cause. 🙂
By the way, I’ve been on vacation for the past two weeks and have therefore not responded to any comments or written new content.
