We just released the first beta of Adobe AIR 2.7 on Adobe Labs. You can get the bits from here. What’s new with this release?
First, this beta is available just for desktops for now. Second, the main features are:
- Acoustic Echo Cancellation - you can create now high quality collaborative or chat apps that deliver excellent sound quality without a headset. Now, Flash Player 10.3 supports acoustic echo cancellation, noise suppression, voice activity detection, and automatic compensation for various mic input levels.
- Enhanced HTMLLoader API – developers have more control on how clickable links behave in HTMLLoader.
- Media Measurement – this feature enables companies to understand how their videos are distributed and consumed and to collect this data in real-time. There is a new set of open APIs that can be used to implement video analytics.
Some of these features have already made their first appearance in the Flash Player 10.3 beta released a couple of weeks ago. Now, they are integrated into Adobe AIR as well. The final version should come not later than Q2 2011.
