Adobe AIR 2.0 Preview

October 20, 2009

Adobe announced last week details for the forthcoming 2.0 version of their Adobe AIR (of which I’m a big fan). It’ll be released in beta format by the end of 2009, with the official release in the first half of 2010 (theoretically). The updated AIR 2.0 will be able to make use of mounted mass storage devices, like flash drives and cameras, will be able to communicate with native applications running on the computer, should have improved performance, and more.
