    Posting this in the HTML forum because there's really no place for this.

    AIR is a new product from Adobe. It's an extension to Flash, Flex, and/or HTML, using a superset of ActionScript 3 to allow you to program FAT CLIENT APPS.

    And it's SICK.

    Some key features:
    1. Database access (local or remote) directly from the app.
    2. Installable software uses the Adobe AIR Virtual Machine (similar to Java VM), BUT!!!
    3. You can create a web-installer in Flash that will auto-install the VM AND THE APP!!!
    4. File access
    5. Camera and Mic input without asking permission
    6. Dock and System Tray controls
    7. Native Window and Menu control
    8. A TON MORE!!!
    9. Did I mention you can create your apps in Flash, Flex OR EVEN HTML?

    I'm just wrapping up my first AIR app... will post when done... amazing stuff!!!

    Kewl beans Funny thing is, someone from a new Flash/Flex magazine PM msg'd a couple of random members @ HoH yesterday looking for beta writers lol. Had to look it up to figure out what Flex is, hadn't heard of it before. Directed them to Filburt here to see if he'd allow it here.

    Camera / Mic access w/o permission? I hear mischief
