Adobe AIR™ software is a new cross--operating system runtime that enables web application developers to extend the reach and functionality of rich Internet applications (RIAs). With Adobe AIR, you can build RIAs and deploy them to the desktop using the technologies, tools and development models you employ today when building browser-based RIAs. In this talk, we'll provide an overview with examples of some of the powerful capabilities provided by Adobe AIR including support for system notifications, H.264 video, native operating system windows/menus, drag and drop, clipboard support and much more.
