Adobe Releases AIR 2 Beta, Promises to Be Less Memory-hungry

1 Comment

Adobe has released new betas of AIR 2 and Flash 10.1, James over at jkOnTheRun reports. Both products now support multitouch, but most interesting for me in this news is that AIR 2 promises to be less memory-hungry than the previous version. I’ve shied away from many useful desktop apps that rely on AIR (TweetDeck, for example) because they hog so much memory — hopefully this new release will have much more reasonable usage of my computer’s resources.

Do you avoid AIR apps because they are so resource-hungry?

Yes. I now avoid all Flash components because it makes my computers sad. Which is peculiar for a guy who occasionally develops widgets with Flex Builder.
