A new Flex framework has been born. Actually, it is not really new, because we've been developing and using this framework for a long time, but it is now available to everybody.
"Mate" (pronounced "mah-teh" like latte) is a tag-based Flex framework that uses implicit invocation to route events to handlers using an "EventMap". Those handlers are a list of actions that is executed when the event is dispatched.
In addition, Mate uses dependency injection to set the data that the views need directly to the views, without having to crate direct references to the model. I am just highlighting some of the features, and I can't cover all of them. We have a lot of information on the site (http://mate.asfusion.com) that you can read.
So why is Mate in alpha if we were using it for a long time? Mostly because we've never got any feedback from outside AsFusion and we want to have a short alpha that allows us to fix any problem or implement any suggestion that people may provide. It is probably more a beta than an alpha release. Before the final release, I think that we will focus on fixing bugs and only add a couple of features that I have in mind but not make big changes.
