Flash Player 11.9 and Adobe AIR 3.9 Beta Available
The upcoming versions of the Flash Runtimes are now available on Adobe Labs.
Flash Player 11.9
Mac OS 10.9 Support – We have tested against the latest developer releases of OS X 10.9 and are ensuring that Flash Player continues to perform as expected. We have also added support for the latest Apple technologies such as “App Nap” so that Flash Player gets out of the way when not in use and allows your system to remain fast and responsive.
Mac .pkg Installation Support – Deploying Flash Player and keeping it up to date is a critical task for system administrators worldwide. We’re introducing a new .pkg installer format for our distribution partners so we can reduce their workload by allowing them to deploy Flash Player for Mac using their current tools and environments.
Adobe AIR 3.9
Mobile Workers (concurrency) for Android – BETA – Our hugely popular desktop feature, AIR Workers, is now making its debut on mobile! We have added support on Android devices so that you will be able to execute code in the background without interrupting your application’s main code. Your UI will remain responsive, enhancing the user experience. We haven’t forgotten about iOS! Look for news on iOS workers in an upcoming release (NOTE: this feature will undergo an extended beta period).
Mobile Support for Background Execution in “Direct” Render Mode – AIR now supports background execution of code on iOS and Android when render mode is set to “direct”. This will allow your applications to perform tasks such as audio playback even when invisible to the user. Due to power and CPU considerations, we recommend reviewing our release notes for additional details and guidance.
New and Improved AOT for AIR iOS – BETA – With our new AOT compiler, we’re improving the build time for iOS applications dramatically. (NOTE: this feature will undergo an extended beta period).
Support for iOS7 – iOS7 is approaching and we are making sure that AIR is compatible and performs as expected.
Mac OS 10.9 Support – We have tested against the latest developer releases of OS X 10.9 and are making sure that your applications support the latest technologies such as “App Nap”.
XXHDPI Icon Support – With this feature we have added support for beautiful, high resolution icons on devices such as the Nexus 10
