What is AIR?
Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR), codenamed and originally called Apollo, is a cross-OS runtime environment for building Rich Internet Applications, using Flash, Flex, HTML and Ajax, that can be deployed as a desktop application.
A public preview release of the AIR runtime, then known as Apollo, along with an SDK and extension for developing Apollo applications with the Flex framework, was released on March 19th, 2007. On June 10, 2007, it was renamed to AIR and a public beta of the runtime was launched.
A month after AIR was released for Alpha, Digg announced a contest where entrants must use AIR to create Digg visualizations.
Currently, beta-builds of Adobe AIR are available from Adobe for the Mac OSX and for Windows. A Linux version is slated to be released at or around the time of the final client release.
