Apollo has disappeared in The AIR !

Apollo has landed, finally! Instead we have AIR, which stands for Adobe Integrated Runtime. This is beta release, available at labs. Macintosh version is 8 Mb, Windows exe is 9 Mb. There is important note that Apollo alpha must be uninstalled before installing Adobe AIR beta.

What about applications that run on Apollo? Do they have to be reinstalled or they will work on AIR? I didn't find answer anywhere, so if anyone know, please answer.

AIR SDK is also available along with documentation which is 3 Mb for HTML developers and 32 Mb for Flex developers. Documentation for HTML developers includes 185 page book "Developing AIR Applications with HTML", which is first thing I'm reading, for sure. There are also samples, quick start and JavaScript Language Reference. Wonderful.

And you are still reading this post? Go to labs, NOW!

Edit: Thanks Mike for such quick comment! Let's get that AIR running...

    Alpha AIR apps won't run in the beta. So you need to uninstall them, and then install beta versions of the app.

    For 1.0, this wont be an issue.

    Hope that helps...
