Guys, apparently the AIR is no longer an Adobe priority. Tell the developers when you are planning to end AIR support ?

I would like to hear some official word on this as well.  Things are really not looking good, and it'd be nice to at least officially hear it.

Have you read something about that? For what it's worth, some of what Starling was good for is built into Adobe Animate now, though mainly for the benefit of HTML5 users. Also, not getting money from Adobe doesn't mean that Starling won't continue to work.

This means that we have lost the support of the main libraries of air. If adob decided not to spend money on it, how much will the air live? Millions of hours are invested in technology and it really works well.

Starling will continue to work I'm sure, but it's mainly the overall message that this sends.  Most of the writing on the wall seems to point to AIR not having the brightest future, and this definitely drives that message home.  I've been hanging on for a while now, and have trying to not be the doom and gloom guy, but this seems pretty bad.  Heck, the Starling forum is one of the last, and possibly the most active AS3 forum to still exist.

Yes, starling will work fine. The concern is AIR won't be updated to meet the changing demands of Apple and Google's app stores. In that scenario, I'd at least hope Adobe would open source it so we can continue to support it.

The correct information : Adobe has stopping financial support for Feathers-UI framework's maintainer NOT Adobe AIR
link: https://forum.starling-framework.org/topic/the-future-of-feathers-ui

so please READ carefully before posting HOAX like that!

I see no hoax. The title of the thread specifically says they stopped supporting starling and feathers. As others have noted, Adobe's actions speak louder than their words and stopping support for frameworks keeping their technology alive, combined with slower releases and zero push on AIR has developers worried.

If the writing on the wall is accurate, OP is asking Adobe to clarify plans on AIR so people are informed.

Josh Tynjala is maintainer of Feathers NOT Starling
I don't see words from Daniel Sperl - maintainer of Starling.


"AIR is no longer an Adobe priority"
--this is hoax
Regular AIR updates clarify this

Daniel has also commented in the topic saying that Starling support has ended as well.

The post from Daniel is clear:
[Side note:]

Before someone asks: at the time of this writing, there's no more financial support from Adobe for Starling, either.
