Adobe AIR 13.0.0.83
Expand your software horizons using this corss-platform tool to run feature-rich web applications such as TweetDeck

Adobe AIR 3 is the latest version of Adobe's cross-platform runtime environment.

The headline addition this time is support for Adobe's Stage3D, a new architecture which allows developers to access accelerated 2D/ 3D rendering capabilities across all platforms (desktop, mobile and TV).

Other performance enhancements include H.264/AVC software encoding for cameras, which makes it easier to stream high quality video from your computer's camera.

AIR 3 also delivers new support for standards including JSON (JavaScript Object Notation), G.711 audio compression, and JPEG-XR, while support for Protected HTTP Dynamic Streaming (HDS) protects streaming video without the need to deploy a licence server.

There are a host of small tweaks, everywhere you look: optimised garbage collection, easy creation of cubic Bezier curves, a secure random number generator, and more.

And support for LZMA compression means deploying all this power won't result in bloated applets: SWF file size can fall by as much as 40%.

Verdict:

Adobe AIR 3 has plenty of interesting new features, and seems to be a solid step forward for the platform

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
