Adobe stops porting AIR to desktop Linux

Filed under
Software

Adobe has announced that it will no longer be releasing its own Desktop Linux port of the Adobe AIR runtime or SDK. AIR is Adobe's platform for rich internet applications. AIR 2.6 will be the last version directly supplied by Adobe for desktop Linux; Adobe has just released AIR 2.7.

The company will instead focus on supplying a "Linux Porting kit for AIR" to partners in its "Open Screen Project" (OSP) programme – those partners will be able to customise and integrate AIR more directly with their Linux-based platforms.
