Adobe continues to update the AIR runtime and SDK to make it a strong cross-platform candidate for building desktop apps. Support for the Linux operating system has been a bit of a sore spot for the AIR team but they’re working hard to address that as evidenced with their release yesterday of Adobe AIR for Linux Beta.
The AIR for Linux FAQ goes into a lot of detail to explain what is being provided in this beta and it does state that this version is feature compatible with both the Windows and OS X versions of the runtime & SDK.
AIR on Linux officially supports the following distributions:
- Fedora Core 8
- Ubuntu 7.10
- Open Suse 10.3
If you’re interested in providing feedback about this release, Adobe has the AIR Support Center available to discuss any quirks or comments.
