Public Beta Previews auf Adobe Labs: "AIR 2" und "Flash Player 10.1"

Adobe Systems hat jetzt zwei seiner Kerntechnologien aktualisiert und auf Adobe Labs zum kostenlosen Download (Mac OS X, Windows, Linux) zur Verfügung gestellt.
Der "Flash Player 10.1" wird Multitouch-Input unterstützen, unter Windows Hardware-Beschleunigung (etwa bei der Anzeige von H.264-Videos) bieten. Insgesamt soll die CPU weniger belastet werden.
Die "Adobe Integrated Runtime" ("AIR 2") soll künftig Desktop-Anwendungen auf Basis von Web-Technologie erlauben, die enger ins Betriebssystem eingebunden werden können (am Mac beispielsweise Spotlight-Suchen, QuickTime-Filme oder Diagramme aus Excel oder Numbers). Darüber hinaus unterstützt "AIR 2" auch native Prozesse (etwa den Start von Anwendungen mit spezifischen Dateien), und externe Massenspeicher.

Adobes Cheftechnologe Keyin Lynch hat bereits einige der neuen Features auf der Entwicklerkonferenz "Adobe MAX" demonstriert:
