What are the advantages of ASC2 (incremental) compilation as of Aug 2014? When I tried it about 4 months ago, it was much slower than MXMLC (about 2-3 times slower), and it generated >100 compile errors for my application code. I could not switch and did not see any benefit. Are there any advantages to using ASC2 as of now? Should I switch?

Possible advantages : Generates smaller/faster code, Better debugging, Faster compilation

If this is about the new C++ based compiler, they spoke about it in Flash Online Conference #9 with Adobe (in case you haven't seen it)

http://gonchar.me/blog/goncharposts/2279 scrub to about 1:05:30 for Govinda Gupta's presentation.

He said it should compile faster, scale better with code size and it might break some legacy code.

No this is about the new incremental ASC2 compilation recently built into FD4. I was asking hoping someone of the FD community would know the advantages.

Incremental compilation is about saving time as well, so the compiler only compiles the changed code instead of the whole code over and over again. Flash already supported it for the old compiler, and now is enabled for the new one. I haven't made any test, I guess under certain circumstances it may be slower (if it turns out it has to compile down all the project after spending the time to check what changed).
