Adobe has officially released AIR for Linux, pulling it out of its beta status, and complementing the existing Windows and Mac versions, thereby giving developers a complete platform.Adobe Integrated Runtime tools have been rolled out as alpha since March 2008 and form part of the Adobe Flash platform; it will allow programmers to code in HTML, Actionscript, JavaScript and Open Source framework, Flex, to create Rich Internet Applications (RIA) without relying on a web browser.AIR 1.5 for Linux supports Flash 10 which means that AIR apps should work in a similar fashion across all three platforms and will allow users to use popular applications like Pandora or Tweetdesk. There are more than 100 million AIR installations on Windows and Mac according to Adrian Ludwig, group product manager for the platform business unit at Adobe.
