The Apollo team is heads down working on finishing up the first public alpha release build for labs. I wanted to give a quick update on where we are, as well as provide some information about the labs release.
The first release on labs will be an alpha release. This means that the build will not be feature complete, and those features implemented may not be completely implemented (such as the windowing API). It also means that there will be bugs (make sure to check out the release notes before you play around with it).
Secondly, the first labs release will be targeted at Flex developers. HTML developers will be able to start building applications, but we won’t have HTML focused docs, and some of the HTML specific features are not as far along as some of the other features. The second labs release in the summer will be targeted at HTML developers.
We are really excited to see what developers do with Apollo, and can’t wait to finally get it into everyone’s hands.
Keep an eye on the Apollo section of Labs and my weblog for the latest info.
I just updated the Adobe news Firefox extension so that it will now work with Firefox 2.0.
The extension has not yet been re-branded from Macromedia to Adobe, but it still aggregates all of the weblog posts from Adobe.
You can find more information, as well as download the latest version from here.
Well, that didn’t take long. Apollo Camp is sold out. If you didn’t get a chance to register, don’t worry. We will be recording all of the sessions and posting them online.
