Today, Adobe released AIR 1.0 (see “TR10: Offline Web Applications”), a platform that allows developers to use Web technologies to build applications that can run online or offline. The hybrid approach is meant to capture the advantages of cloud computing, such as making data available to users regardless of location or operating system, while also keeping hold of the advantages of traditional desktop computing, such as the ability to drag and drop between applications. Downloads are currently available here for Windows and Macintosh operating systems, and Adobe plans to follow with releases for Linux and mobile devices.
