Adobe has just made an important announcement:
We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Adobe AIR 2 runtime. Starting today, you can download and install the new version at get.adobe.com/air/.
Adobe AIR is rapidly becoming a very viable solution to the desktop cross-platform conundrum. MicroISVs pay attention, this new release includes a native processes API, WebKit, multi-touch and gesture support, as well as major performance improvements.
If I were to develop a cross-platform application today, I would probably opt for AIR, just like Balsamiq did. Working with AIR and Flex (or HTML5) is a pleasant enough experience, and while bashing Adobe seems to be in vogue these days, I like where they’re heading (at least on the desktop front).
