Clash | Freedom in a Flash

0.9.7b-rev9 (2009 July 9)


Mj Mendoza IV, Pascal Naidon, Patrick Corrieri

License: GPL

This is attempt fork of Pencil (SVN r54). Since the main developer is mostly busy, I have implemented some of my wishlist on my own.

I am not an official Pencil developer so I cannot officially release this update and call it Pencil. I am naming this fork Clash for whatever obvious reasons.

To whoever would like to join me develop this fork and make it closer to Adobe Flash IDE, you are welcome to contact me.
