Badge Install Updates Current and Future

As I’ve mentioned before, install badges are a great way to get your AIR-based application and AIR itself installed on a users machine with minimal hassle. The feature is being used extensively by eBay, AOL, and others to distribute their applications.

If you’re using the install badge, please update to the latest version. You can download it here. This version addresses a cross-site scripting vulnerability in the version previously posted to labs, as described in the FAQ.

We’re also planning some significant improvements to this feature for 1.0. I’ll fill you in when details are available.
