Pushing the Limits: Experimenting with the Adobe AIR 2 beta

Since the release of the Adobe AIR 2 beta, developers are already beginning to push the limits of what is possible by building entirely new classes of applications. For example, Christophe Coenraets recently built a number of powerful applications including proof-of-concept, light-weight web server using the new server socket API in AIR 2. Benjamin Dobler is working on a screen recording application that takes advantage of AIR 2’s new native process API.

    I’m blown away by the screen recording app. The ability to communicate with native processes now is a real game-changer. I spent this past weekend messing around with the NativeClass and developed a screenshot class and demo app. Here’s the post: http://destroytoday.com/blog/2009/12/screencapture-class-demo-app-and-screencast/

    I loved the new file functions like open with default app and such. I’m developing a flash (fla based project) / flex (swc based project) project creator that, based on one single dummy .FLA, it will create a whole project structure, library folders, movie clips, classes using a .jsfl file I created at AIR runtime. The new SDK is really fun to play with.

  3. Is there a feature in AIR that is similar to FireFox’s Zoom feature?
