Adobe’s Apollo betas as AIR

Posted by David Hunter at 6:33 PM ET.

Adobe’s Apollo environment for Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) was released as a beta today and formally named the Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR):

Adobe AIR is a cross-operating system application runtime that allows developers to use HTML/CSS, Ajax, Adobe Flash and Adobe Flex to extend rich Internet applications to the desktop. Key elements of Adobe AIR are open source, including the WebKit HTML engine, the ActionScript Virtual Machine (Tamarin project) and SQLite local database functionality.

New features in the Adobe AIR beta include an embedded local database, PDF support, enhanced capabilities for JavaScript developers, and deeper integration with Adobe Flex. The new beta version of Adobe AIR allows developers to incorporate PDF by leveraging Adobe Reader 8.1 functionality. Users will be able to view and interact with PDF documents within Adobe AIR applications similarly to how they interact with a PDF in the browser today.

The beta downloads for both Windows and Macintosh are available on the Adobe website.
