Its a runtime to make RIAs for desktop, even one can create just old desktop only applications with it as well. The main hype for this runtime is that it runs on Windows and MAC OS without any change to the code. Linux version will be released later.
While AIR was in beta, we have seen some great applications and examples that will, for sure, inspire developers to create great experiences with AIR in coming days.
Get the final binaries here.
One thing I’m very confused about is, why Adobe call it Adobe AIR, Even in the Logo? making it Adobe Adobe Integrated Runtime :S
I don’t see MS calling .Net as Microsoft MS.Net Framework. Is there a catch that i missed?
Anyway, there’re tons of new and updated resources to check out. I just skimmed through these:
I barely touched AIR while it was in beta, but now I am planning to get my hand dirty with some Flex and AIR.
BTW, the AIR download size is just over 11MB. A bit heavy than I expected. And it might be noticed by many mid– to low-bandwidth users.
Next thing to do, get the AIR SDK, and get your hands dirty!
