Air Adobe

The beta of Adobe's multimedia cross-platform run-time engine, formerly known as Apollo, is now ready for download.

The newly rebranded Adobe Integrated Runtime (or AIR) was designed to allow developers to build an application once and have it run on Microsoft Windows, Linux or Macintosh computers, without a browser. 'We can build true desktop applications using Web-based technologies that will run insider the run-time engine' according to Bobby Caudill, Adobe's solutions manager for global government. If you've written a Flash or Adobe Flex-based program for the browser, porting it to Air should be a snap, he added.
