  • Windows 64-bit support: The installers now work in Windows 64-bit.
  • Linux support: Simulator and BlackBerry OS SDK for Adobe AIR now supported on Linux.
  • Flash Builder 4.5 (Burrito / Flex Mobile ‘Hero') Support: The plug-in installers will work with either Flash Builder 4.0 or the pre-release version of Flash Builder Burrito from Adobe's website.
