Agenda

This was our rough agenda. We didn't follow the order, but we did deal with most things on the list.

  • VM
    • Action execution order
    • Memory management
    • ActionScript classes
  • Threading issues
  • Playback architecture
    • Movie advancement (ticking)
    • A/V syncronization
  • Testcases and documentation
    • Roadmap
    • AS3 design
  • What is this music project?

Memory Management

Reference counting will be abandoned. For ActionScript, we will use garbage collection; for the rest we will use simple memory management. See MemoryManagement for more info.
