The Adobe AIR runtime enables developers to use proven web technologies in order to create rich Internet applications that will deploy to the desktop and can run on different operating systems.

Adobe AIR also allows web application developers to use their existing web development skills (HTML, Javascript, Adobe Flash, Adobe Flex, Ajax) to build and deploy rich Internet applications to the desktop.

With regard to the business benefits, Adobe AIR offers an exciting new way to engage customers with innovative, branded desktop applications, without requiring changes to existing technology, people, or processes.

This cross-operating system runtime renders the applications more fun, powerful and easy to use.

What’s New in this Version:

1) Large maximum window size (enhanced):
· Enjoy support for large screen displays that can display windows up to 4095×4095 pixels wide.

2) IME API and IME text input (enhanced):
· Benefit from better text input handling with IME software. The new API enhancements are designed to use with the new Flash Text Engine.

3) Sophisticated printer interaction (enhanced):

It is also possible to print without displaying the print dialog box.
