Are there any plans for further development of Alchemy? The last toolkit update was almost a year ago, and at this point in time the project appears to have been abandoned by Adobe. My compnay has developed a native PDF renderer with full support for all image content types and fonts, even ICC color profiles, with Alchemy, and it works great except for some minor issues that are beyond of control. At this point we either need formal support from Adobe or access to the llvm backend source. Without that we will have to start looking at porting to Silverlight (the decoder support we need is already mostly there in C#).
Thanks, any news would be greatly appreciated.

This indicates you have improper inline assembly in your code. Remember to remove all x86 asm statements, and keep your own inline assembly simple. See e.g. http://forums.adobe.com/message/1871533
Yeah Sun is horrible. Never doing any Java development again. Microsoft may have a tattered image to the public, but they are far and away the most developer friendly company I've ever worked with. And nothing beats Visual Studio. Nothing comes close.

Do you mean this Source-Code ?
