Online AS3LCR was 404 - Fixed now


#1

Few days ago some people noticed that the online AS3LCR was not available anymore (FaceBook link)

eg. this URL
http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashPlatform/reference/actionscript/3/

an issue in the Adobe tracker was created too
https://tracker.adobe.com/#/view/FP-4198775

it is all fixed now, at worst, refresh your browser cache


Also a little reminder that this kind of documentation is extremely precious to any ActionScript developers, and not only you would want to vote when this doc is down or not available, here the main URL

  • first, you have the main documentation portal
    ActionScript reference and documentation
    https://www.adobe.com/devnet/actionscript/documentation.html

  • second, you have the current AS3LCR

You may have had other older links like

http://livedocs.adobe.com/flex/3/langref/index.html
this one does not work anymore and returns a 404

another older link is this one
http://help.adobe.com/en_US/AS3LCR/Flash_10.0/
but it actually redirect to https://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashPlatform/reference/actionscript/3/


You may also be interested in an open source project later on, the same way we shared
on Github the ActionScript 3 Language Specification
(which can be originally found here http://help.adobe.com/livedocs/specs/actionscript/3/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm)

It would be nice to also produce our own open source “community edition” of the AS3LCR,
probably in the same way that the Redtamarin documentation is generated (eg. heavily customized asdoc).
