Here's a reminder that Adobe AIR and Adobe Flash Player 10.1 are getting updates today to get ready for the impending Android 2.3 -- Gingerbread -- update. What happens if you don't update your Adobe stuff first? In the case of AIR, you've going to get crashes, apparently. From the AIR Team Blog:
In cases where a user receives the Gingerbread OS update before updating to the AIR 2.5.1 runtime, they will receive a native dialog on load stating that the application has quit unexpectedly and your application will fail to load. We’d like your assistance in preventing end users from this type of experience on their device.
Adobe recommends that developers update their AIR apps to require version 2.5.1 to force users to upgrade. Gingerbread's coming, folks. It's coming. [Adobe AIR Team Blog] Thanks, Nick!
