The Adobe AIR 3 Release Candidate is available, and includes this new feature: Native extensions for Adobe AIR.
Until now, native extensions were available on AIR for TV, but not for AIR on desktop or mobile devices. Now you can create an ActionScript library that can execute native code on all these devices. This means an AIR application developer, using ActionScript, can take advantage of platform-specific and device-specific native capabilities.
We’ll blog here about documentation and examples as they become available. In the meantime, you can read more about it in this Adobe Developer Connection article: Extending Adobe AIR.
And get the AIR 3 Release Candidate download to get started.
