    chris.campbell Adobe Employee

      Today we're pleased to announce that the next version of AIR is available for immediate download.  This release of AIR updates the embedded version of Flash Player to the most recent version.


      Below are some of the key features and benefits of AIR 19.  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!


      • 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.

      • iOS 9 Compatibility

      We've run through a full certification pass and verified that AIR applications work on last week's iOS9 release.  Look for new iOS 9 specific features in upcoming releases!


      • Universal Links

      Support for iOS9's universal links let you replace custom URL schemes with standard HTTP or HTTPS links.  Please see the release notes for full details.



      Fixed Issues:


      • Captive version of Flash Player used in WebKit has been updated

      Known Issues:

      • [iOS 8] Keyboard opens in landscape orientation even though the app runs in portrait mode. (4042709)
      • [Android] Application hangs and crashes after some time on playing rtmp video on some devices(4018065)
