Notification when New SDKs are supported?

I am told that only AIR 3.1 is supported - Not anything higher.


Is there a place to be notified when 3.4 will be supported? ( or 3.2+ )

If not, will someone from BB let us know in this thread when it is?

Re: Notification when New SDKs are supported?

I recently communicated with Alec Saunders of developer relations and asked him exactly that. He said that RIM had a dedicated team working on updating AIR but he could or would not name a date.
As for SDK specific support, I recommend consulting the roadmap on the AIR SDK Beta page. So far there is no information about a newer version of the AIR runtime.
This is a signature. Don't expect anything fancy, for I would use an image if I could. But I can't, so cope with it...

Re: Notification when New SDKs are supported?

AIR 3.3/3.4 is going to be supported. It is in the planning stage. I would not expect anything until around Feb/Mar timeframe since it requires resources currently tasked to BB10 core development. Even after a beta version of this, it would still be a TBD on when consumers would get it since it will require an upgrade to the OS (not a patch) for them to use it.

Do not ask about captive runtime. RIM has said that AIR is a core component to the OS and they do not want the increase footprint of captive runtime to take away form the user experience.
