Adobe Flex -- one of Adobe's newer projects for developing cross-platform rich Internet applications -- is now being open-sourced. Adobe announced today that they will be moving Flex to an open-source model under the Mozilla Public License (MPL). Flex applications will be able to run in any web browser on all major platforms and on the desktop when using Adobe Apollo. The transition to a fully open-source project is expected by the end of 2007. More information is available in the Adobe Labs Wiki.
