Adobe AIR just went 1.0. As the official Adobe spokesperson for AIR in Canada, I’ve been busy doing over/interviews with journalists across the country in preparation for the AIR launch.. and it’s finally here!
With the announcement, Adobe also added to the already impressive list of customers (eBay, AOL, FedEx, Nasdaq, SAP to name a few). Newcomers include The New York Times, BBC, and Deutsche Bank. Pretty darn impressive for a 1.0 product (whatever happened to waiting for the first service pack, or a 1.1 update??)
Also, Adobe Flex 3, the free open source framework for RIA development, moved from beta to production.. so all in all, a super exciting time to be at Adobe (or to be an Adobe customer)!
