    here a snippet (edited)
var adm:AudioDeviceManager = AudioDeviceManager.audioDeviceManager;
var devices:Array = adm.deviceNames;
var device:String = devices[adm.selectedDeviceIndex];
trace( "The default device is: " + device  );
trace( "You have " + devices.length + " device(s) available."  );
for( var i:uint = 0; i < devices.length; i++ ) 
    trace( "["+i+"] " + devices[i] );
  • Asynchronous texture upload for AIR Desktop

  • Enable DirectX 11 for AIR Windows

    AIR 26 and below used DirectX 9 for hardware accelerated rendering on Windows. Beginning with AIR 27.0, AIR will use DirectX 11 for the hardware accelerated rendering for Windows 8.0 and above.

    For Windows 7 and below, hardware accelerated content will continue to use DirectX 9.

  • macOS AIRSDK Upgrade

    From AIR 27, the AIR Runtime is built with the Mac 10.12 SDK. App Transport Security (ATS) introduced by Apple does not allow insecure connections between App and Web services. Because of this change, all the connections made to insecure web sites via Loader, URLLoader will discontinue and will not work due to App Transport Security.
