Simone Cingano has, available from GitHub, TileCraft a 2.5D modeling program written with OpenFL. TileCraft is touted as being a “fast multi-platform modeling tool to make tiles for games, icons or whatever you want”. The project has decent documentation with a quick start guide, how to build from source, ready to use examples and more. This is one to watch.

Another library from Simone, akifox-asynchttp, a “multi-platform asynchronous HTTP+HTTPS requests [library]” has been updated adding SSL support, custom headers, redirection handling and lots more.
