BNMAPI being discontinued

...but not to worry, it's just being re-branded :) The same framework will shortly be available as "bFrame" under the MIT open source license and maintained by baysoftware.ca
New support for Flash 10 (CS4) and LOTS of new features are on their way so move on over to http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/bframe for more information.

Because data or asset loads can complete asynchronously at any time, the sequence of loads can never be assured (some may finish earlier than others regardless of the order in which they were started). With the FIFO buffer, loads are finished in the order in which they were started, regardless of what happens behind the scenes.

The API is back

Version 3.1 of the API is at a stage where it's ready for public release.

Code commenting is done in NaturalDocs for easy readability and the license has changed to the MIT open source license to allow broader use.
