Apollo Alpha released

Ahead of its much anticipated CS3 launch (to be webcast) later this month, Adobe has released an alpha version of Apollo, its cross-operating system runtime that allows developers to leverage existing Web development skills to build rich internet applications. Apollo is designed to enable developers to create applications that combine the benefits of Web applications, network as well as user connectivity, rich media content, ease of development, and broad reach. The software includes drag-and-drop support, rich clipboard access, and desktop as well as system shortcuts. Apollo applications run as regular applications, and don't have to run within another application or shell as Web applications run within a browser. The alpha version of Apollo runtime offers developers the opportunity to begin building applications for Apollo. Additionally, lynda.com has launched free video training for Apollo Alpha on Adobe Labs.
