DNS swtich mostly done

Each person's experience will be different as DNS entries propagate. Things seem to be up and running now for most people. Rest assured, the site is certainly here when your DNS entries catch up!

Quick DNS change

We've had to quickly change the DNS settings over. If you have any issues with the site over the next 72 hours, it's likely due to the DNS changes propagating. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Worlds best Flash Platform Vertical Search Engine - Let's build it!

There's a long-winded post on the forums about an idea Jesse just had. Basically, using a relatively new feature from Google Labs, we can work together to build a Flash Platform specific sub-search of Google, which will return really relevant results from only the best Flash Platform developer sites around. Check out how you can use it, and contribute to its refinement via this thread.

Web 2.0ish ActionScript.org

We've recently been making efforts to "Web 2.0"-ify the site. You will notice that all articles, tutorials and the like are now available for syndication via our Syndicate page. Forum threads and thread listings are also syndicatable. All tutorials, articles and forum threads have recently been updated to include one-click links to social book-marking tools such as Del.ico.us and the like. For more on that, see this thread. We encourage you to investigate these powerful features as means of staying up to date with the latest content on the site.

New design, new server, new CMS. NEW ActionScript.org!

Welcome to the NEW ActionScript.org! We're very happy to announce that after about six months of delays the new site is up and running. The change is not only in the design but also the entire backbone of the site, which has moved from static HTML pages to a real-time Content Management System. We've also migrated to bigger, stronger hardware and a faster Internet connection, so downloads and processing times should be reduced. With the new CMS, authors will soon be able to publish and edit their own Article and Tutorial content as they wish, plus there's a bunch of new features which we hope will enable us to continue to build this great community. Your comments are very welcome via the relevant discussion thread on the General Chat forum. (Forum posts are better than email at the moment, while the DNS propagates.) For the next few days you may experience minor issues as the DNS changes propagate. Please be patient during this time.
