AIR 3 Beta updated

This post is more than 2 years old.

I'm a bit late on this, but Labs has an update for the Adobe AIR 3 Beta. Some interesting new features in this update are...

  • Stage Video Hardware Acceleration (AIR for mobile)
  • Captive Runtime Support (AIR for desktop and Android)
  • iOS Background Audio Playback Support
  • Android Licensing Service Support
  • Android Front-facing Camera Support
  • Encrypted Local Storage for Mobile
  • H.264/AVC Software Encoding for Cameras (desktop)

See the labs site for more details, but I want to especially call out the captive runtime item. What this means - practically - is that your apps can ship with the AIR runtime in it. No need for a separate download.
