Apple is rolling out its next generation OS next week, code named “Tiger“, and it is looking pretty sweet. However, as with any update this significant, there are bound to be some issues. We have put up a page listing all know issues with Macromedia products running on Tiger. Make sure to check this out before you upgrade in order to ensure that your day to day work flow is not affected.
As stated on the website, we are working with Apple to resolve these issues.

I was working on some new mini chart apps over the weekend for the MXNA reports section, and had a DataGrid that contained dates. I wanted to allow the user to sort the datagrid by the DateField, but by default the DataGrid sorts dates with a string compare (calling toString on the Date instance).
I tried to set up a custom sort function for the DataGridColumn instance that contained the dates, but because I was using a custom label format function for the column, Flex passed the labels to me, and not the data items (which would allow me to get access to the Date instance). Because of this, I couldn’t sort on the date.
Well, as many of you noticed yesterday, the markme.com domain expired (doh!). Apparently Network Solutions had been sending me renewal notices for the past couple of weeks, but they were being sent to an old email address. Anyways, the domain has been renewed and should be working for everyone again. I am sorry for any hassle that it caused.
Well, as you probably have probably heard by now, Macromedia and Adobe announced this morning that our companies are combining. If you are like me, then I am sure there are a ton of questions going through your head. We have put up a mini site with more information, but I wanted to make a quick post to put some more context around what is happening.
I came across some of the Flash related entries at wikipedia this weekend, and, as I know a bit about Flash, I began to correct and add some info. However, as I thought about it, I realized that some people might not like the fact that I, a Macromedia employee, was editing and contributing to Macromedia related entries. I was concerned that people would be concerned that since I was from macromedia that any info I added would display a bias.
