FlexPMD 1.2 released

The FlexPMD team is thrilled to announce that after 6 months, version 1.2 has left the building:

We and the community added a bunch of rules related to naming conventions, security, touch screens.
A new sample project has been created if you want to create your own rules.
You can now load a ruleset Maven from an URL.

Another great news: Xavi and I will be giving a session at MAX later this year about Flash based projects and quality management.

Here is the release note:
