    I don’t understand why they dropped it. Their Linux customers have sometimes up to 400 or more Air runtime installed (like us). For technical writing we use Adobe Robohelp/Framemaker to create a Airhelp.

    If i use an Airhelp with runtime 2.6 on Linux i get major refresh issue. The same Airhelp under Windows with air 3.0 works fine.

    Adobe have been telling all the big Linux houses use Air it handles Linux… So that’s what we did…

    Any idea where i can find air 3.0 for Linux (third party ?), is it to early

    In light of the recent move to banish Flash from emerging platforms (mobile) and move to AIR, I think it will be up to Adobe’s partners to get on the phone and demand AIR be in-parity on Linux.

    If AIR is the future of Flash, as Adobe seems to be pushing, then Linux should follow the path of Mobile, and simply drop support for the Flash plug-in… and then immediately embrace full support for AIR on Linux.

    If Adobe is maintaining the code-base internally, as they say, this should be a no-brainer.

    So, my best answer is for you to pick up the phone and call Adobe and ask for them to do that. You’re their client more than we are.
