      This beta release provides access to the latest AIR SDK for Windows, Mac OS, iOS and Android.  You can download the AIR beta here: Download Adobe AIR 19 Beta - Adobe Labs


      Below are some of the key features and benefits of AIR 18. Please see our release notes for full details.


      New Features:


      • iOS Concurrency

      Our popular desktop and Android feature, AIR Workers, is now making its debut on iOS! We have added support on iOS 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. Please note, this feature will undergo an extended beta period.


      • New insertAt() and removeAt() Vector and Array APIs

      With Flash Player and AIR 19, we have introduced two new APIs for element insertion or removal in Vector and Arrays. They are implemented to perform better than existing splice method when used for single element.

      • Improved Stage3D Error Messages

      We've added new Stage3D error codes to provide developers with additional debugging and error information.
