My fellow evangelist, Piotr Walczyszyn, was very busy this summer tinkering with a number of projects that involve Adobe AIR. The latest one is library that enables you to update native AIR applications. You probably know that AIR 2 introduced a cool feature that lets you call processes from your AIR application (Native Processes API) as long as you package your application as a native installer (EXE, DMG, RPM etc). Once you do this, the built-in feature for update doesn’t work anymore.
If you want to have update capabilities with AIR 2 native installers you can use Piotr’s library or you can build your own mechanism. The choice is pretty simple, isn’t it?
Here is a video in which Piotr demos the library:
