I think when Yahoo first released their Flex 1.5 Map API, I was super psyched to get my hands on it. Of course I was just getting my hands dirty with Flex and found the integration and development process with Flex 1.0/1.5 was just awful.
Today an answer to one of my prayers has been sent. Yahoo’s Actionscript 3 Map API was just announced. I can’t wait to see where this leads. Not that there aren’t enough geospacial/mapping applications out there, but this will open the door to bigger and badder application development. Here is the original posting on Yahoo’s blog.
