Hi all

Shadi Abou-Zahra suggested that I report this correction to you.  It came about due to some confusion from a member of the WCAG IG who had trouble finding out which version of aDesigner was linked to in the WCAG documents.  Please see below.

Regards

Vivienne Conway

> At first, I apologize for the confusion. I think it is caused by

>
> ---
>
> 2004:   aDesigner was published at IBM alphaWorks (Free but IBM proprietary.)
>
> 2007:   aDesigner2 that supports Flash evaluation function was published at
> IBM alphaWorks.
>
> 2008:   Eclipse ACTF aDesigner was published. (Open-sourced version of
> aDesigner2. ACTF aDesigner 0.5 is almost equivalent to aDesigner2)
>          At the same time, aDesigner2 was graduated from IBM alphaWorks.
> Further developments and enhancements are performed at Eclipse ACTF
> project.
>
> ---
>
> As you know, aDesigner that supports Flash evaluation is now available from
> Eclipse.org, and its latest version is 1.0. So, if possible, would you
> please ask editors to replace "aDesigner2" with "aDesigner" (or "ACTF
> aDesigner") in the Flash techniques page? If needed, I can post it to
> w3c-wai-ig ML.
>
> BTW, I found that the link to aDesigner in "Resources" section was already
> updated and now it linked to ACTF's download page
> (http://www.eclipse.org/actf/downloads/tools/aDesigner/). Thank you for
> your support for it.
