The FD team is working hard on the next iteration of FlashDevelop (4) with big improvements and new features in mind:

* Improved code generation and completion
* Greatly improved Mac & Linux virtualization
* Multi-project solutions, including SWC projects
* Extensive AIR integration for all desktop & mobile platforms
* Implementing some of your numerous feature requests

This means a lot of work and in the open source world this translates into many months even years working on available nights and weekends. We believe a very big step forward could be taken with people working full time on FlashDevelop during few months. As Philippe Elsass, the co-founder of the project and FD team developer is starting his journey as a freelancer in 2011 we see this a good opportunity have a hired developer to make things happen faster. Our target is to "hire" Philippe for two months on FlashDevelop full time. This could be made possible if many FlashDevelop users would give few bucks for this cause.

At the moment we have reached 20% of the funding goal and we keep you posted on the progress on twitter @flashdevelop.

You love FlashDevelop, use it everyday, for free, and want more stability & features?

You can make it happen by donating & sharing this announcement.

We like to thank all donors for their amazing support and we have now enough donations to hire Philippe for one month. This will speed up FlashDevelop development a lot. Let's try to achieve the target of two months next before February when Philippe starts his paid work on FlashDevelop.

Total progress: 51% of Philippe's two months salary

Big thank you to all amazing supporters!

We are now closing the fundraising after gathering 65% of the total goal and achieving 5 weeks of hired FlashDevelop work for Philippe. We do still accept donations for fees and such.

Phillippe will start his work in early February with a goal to finish FlashDevelop 4 for golive.
