The Starling Manual

The Starling framework allows you to create hardware accelerated applications in ActionScript 3. The main target is the creation of 2D games, but Starling can be used for any graphical application.

Starling's API is very similar to the native Flash API. It provides almost the same set of classes and functions, which makes it easy for experienced Flash developers to make the transition from the conventional display list to stage3D accelerated content.
