@edsys apart from the release date which may be inaccurate that is the latest version on the Adobe site so you must be using the AIR 2 beta - I know its a CPU hog, but big cross platform developers are unfortunately using it.

older than my current version

Flash and now AIR are the only applications that have consistently been able to bring every Mac I've ever owned (including my new MacBook pro) to it's knees. Do yourself a favour and promote an open web by uninstalling both today:

ByeBye CPU cycle eating, security and privacy invading user interface desaster. (As usually with Adobe software these days.)

Too bad this thing eats memory. Nice concept, though. Probably has a very lucrative future.

Very welcome complement to the redundant Java cross-platform desktop apps.

Required for ebay desktop. Installed Beta 2 ten minutes ago and it works nicely.
