it seems that the latest link
http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/mac/download/latest/AIRSDK_Compiler.dmg
get cached by Chrome and does not necessarily give you the latest version

but on the archived SDK page you get the versioned link
http://airdownload.adobe.com/air/mac/download/25.0/AIRSDK_Compiler.dmg
which should work better

And don’t forget that the AIR SDK v25 is also available in 64bit for Windows
64 bit AIR 25 SDK & Compiler Beta – Captive apps only (Windows)
I think it should be updated soon

And finally let’s welcome back flashplugin as full fledged citizen in the Linux world :slight_smile:
