Adobe releases beta of AIR for Linux
Adobe has released a beta version of AIR (Adobe Integrated Runtime) for Linux. Previously, Linux users have had to make do with a rudimentary alpha version of Adobe's runtime environment. According to Adobe, the beta release should have approximately the same range of functionality as the Windows and Mac OS X versions that have already been released. The beta AIR includes support for full-screen mode, encrypted data storage, file type registration, keyboard shortcuts, and support for V4L2 webcams and printers. In contrast to its Mac and Windows counterparts, however, the Linux runtime still can't handle applications involving DRM. Installation on 64 bit Linux systems is also not supported.
