    12/8/2015 - Release - AIR 20 Runtime and SDK

    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 20.  Please see our release notes for full details.


      New Features:

      • AIR 64-bit on Mac OS X

      The AIR shared runtime and SDK are now fully 64-bit on OSX!  With AIR 20, all Mac AIR applications will be 64-bit compatible.  If you require 32-bit compatibility for OSX, please continue to use AIR 19 to create captive runtime applications.  For Windows developers, we hope to have a 64-bit solution out to our beta channel in the near future.


      • Video rotation information available to ActionScript

      The Flash runtime will now process the track header box and movie header box metadata correctly, allowing for correct positioning and sizing of video.

      • Android SDK Upgrade

      We’ve updated AIR with the latest Android SDK version (24.3.4).  This will allow us to implement the latest features available to Android (in particular, Android TV support currently in our AIR beta).

      • SecureSocket support for iOS

      SecureSocket support has been available for the desktop and Android platforms, but wasn’t implemented on iOS.  With AIR 20, this has been remedied and developers can now take advantage of this feature on all platforms, for both Flash Player and AIR.


      • Stage3D instanced drawing

      We’re constantly looking for ways to improve the lives of our developers.  Our Stage3d API’s have allowed developers to create incredibly beautiful and fluid performing games.  This new API will leverage the GPU on mobile devices and provides improved performance when drawing similar objects numerous times in a scene.
