Adobe releases AIR public beta (formerly Apollo)

For those of you who have been keeping tabs on Adobe’s Apollo application (and you should be keeping tabs on this), Adobe has just posted a public beta of the application and has also changed its name to AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime). If you’re unfamiliar with Apollo (Air) it is an application environment that allows your HTML, Actionscript, and AJAX skills to be deployed as full desktop applications. If you’ve been at any of Adobe’s recent keynotes, you will surely hear mention of Apollo/AIR – which means they’re dropping some serious $$ on development of this app. I’m excited to see where this goes from here!
