Dot 1 Release of AIR

Posted: June 17, 2008 in Adobe, AIR, Flex


On Monday, June 16th Adobe AIR 1.1 was made available for download on the site. To learn more about this dot release you can take a look at this FAQ (PDF);

Items of note:

Matt Chotin has posted an article about developing Flex applications with AIR 1.1

The Flex SDK is including support for AIR 1.1 in the 3.0.2 stable build. You can download it from here.

Adobe AIR 1.1 documentation can be found here.

I find that it is a worthwhile upgrade.



Adobe AIR 1.1 Just Around the Corner

Posted: June 11, 2008 in Adobe, AIR


Adobe will be releasing the 1.1 version of AIR very soon. In addition to bug fixes, AIR version 1.1 will bring about the following enhancements;

  • Installation dialog translations for Japanese, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese, and Russian
  • Support for building internationalized applications including keyboard input for double byte languages
  • Support for certificate migration from a self-signed application to one that chains to a certificate of authority (CA)

Although I have yet to create any AIR applications requiring internationalization or foreign language install dialogs, I am excited about the fact that I can migrate from a self-signed application to one that uses a proper certificate of authority.

… and the world keeps turning 🙂
