Migrating Serialization Changes Within an AIR Application

I just submitted my entry to the AIR Cookbook for the AIR Cookbook Cook-off.

It solves the problem of having your AIR application store an IExternalizable class on disk but then later adding more fields to that class. How would you read the old version of the class without encountering a runtime error if you tried to read the new field that wasn't present in the older serialization?

Go check it out the cookbook entry to find out how to do this and please rate the article!
