Yep -- thanks. It should be good for everyone to see what people are
using it for and the issues they're running into, etc.
>>7. Were you using any Arp extensions? Which one(s)? Notes/comments?

Your custom caching system sounds interesting. Would you mind giving us
more info about it?
>Also, setting up a new project- lots of copy/paste/replace
This is one of the main areas that will be addressed in Arp 3 as it is
one of my pet hates too. Setting up a new project will be a one-click

This is coming -- based on my/Christophe's work in this area.

This too is coming but it would be good to get feedback from you with
regards to workflow with Xcode (I don't use it myself.) If anything
breaks horribly for you (in terms of workflow) -- let me know earlier
rather than later! You'll have access to the code as soon as its in the
SVN as we develop so you should be able to start testing pretty much
from Day 1 :)

Understood. We will, of course, be following an iterative development
cycle and the initial focus will be on AS 2, Flash and Flex 1.5.
Thanks so much -- it's great to have this feedback coming in.
