Ignore warning message: StageOrientationEvent "deprecated as of AIR 2.5"

Hey developers,


Just wanted to share that if you ever encounter the following warning message when compiling an application using the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for PlayBook, it can be ignored.



[exec] [INFO]             Compiling WebWorks application
[exec] C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings\Temp\widgetGen.1151896931300490461923.tmp\blackberry\applicationEvents\ApplicationEvent.as(61): col: 60 Warning: Deprecated as of AIR 2.5
[exec] webView.stage.removeEventListener(StageOrientationEvent.ORIENTATION_CHANGING, preventOrientationChanging );
[exec]                                   ^


The StageOrientationEvent class was deprecated for AIR 2.5, however it is being re-included in AIR v2.6.  You likely see this warning message if you have v2.6 installed.
