Please be aware of a very simple issue that I don't believe is well
documented... When you go through an upgrade of an existing project from
SDK 3.1 to 3.2 where Air is involved, the compiler links the appropriate
Air objects based on what is contained in the app.xml file (YOUR
APPLICATION NAME-app.xml) in the project home directory. You will find
either (the compiler usually crabs about this if you rely on objects not
in the chosen library though)

<application xmlns="";> or 

<application xmlns="";>

Make sure this is set correctly for your target environment.
