Adobe Releases Apollo Beta Renaming Air

    Adobe released on Monday a beta version of Adobe Integrated Runtime , or simply AIR. In fact, AIR is not something new - it's the same Adobe Apollo Platform, which has already been released in the preview version for developers.

    Adobe Integrated Runtime is a cross-platform runtime that allows web developers to write web applications available offline. But unlike Google Gears, which also allows web applications to work without connecting to a network, programs written in AIR can work without a browser, as stand-alone desktop applications.

    The new version fully supports HTML and Ajax, so now AIR applications can be created without using Flash - you can also use JavaScript and Adobe Flex for development. Adobe also released an extension for Dreamweaver (available for download here ).

    If you are interested, you can get acquainted with AIR-applications in the directory of AIR-programs .
