Little discovery while I was reviewing some i18n and l10n stuff

AIR 30 added support for the Indonesian language in <supportedLanguages>
if you look at the Descriptor.30.0.xsd file
under templates/air/ (where the AIR SDK is installed)

you will see

  <xs:simpleType name="languageNameType">
    <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
      <xs:enumeration value="cs" />
      <xs:enumeration value="da" />
      <xs:enumeration value="de" />
      <xs:enumeration value="el" />
      <xs:enumeration value="en" />
      <xs:enumeration value="es" />
      <xs:enumeration value="fi" />
      <xs:enumeration value="fr" />
      <xs:enumeration value="in" /><!-- here -->
      <xs:enumeration value="it" />
      <xs:enumeration value="iw" />
      <xs:enumeration value="ja" />
      <xs:enumeration value="ko" />
      <xs:enumeration value="ms" />
      <xs:enumeration value="nb" />
      <xs:enumeration value="nl" />
      <xs:enumeration value="pl" />
      <xs:enumeration value="pt" />
      <xs:enumeration value="ru" />
      <xs:enumeration value="sv" />
      <xs:enumeration value="th" />
      <xs:enumeration value="tr" />
      <xs:enumeration value="vi" />
      <xs:enumeration value="zh" />
    </xs:restriction>
  </xs:simpleType>

and if you create a new project the app.xml will shows

Android Native uses “in” code for indonesean language, wherein native iOS uses “id” as its language code.
We have added support of “id” in “in” code to support iOS with the same tag.

<supportedLanguages>cs da de el en es fi fr in it iw ja ko ms nb nl pl pt ru sv th tr vi zh</supportedLanguages>

see Localizing the application name and description in the AIR application installer

<name> 
    <text xml:lang="en">Sample 1.0</text> 
    <text xml:lang="fr">Échantillon 1.0</text> 
    <text xml:lang="de">Stichprobe 1.0</text> 
</name>

so yeah since AIR 30 you could also use

<name> 
    <!-- since AIR 1.1 -->
    <text xml:lang="en">Sample 1.0</text> 
    <text xml:lang="fr">Échantillon 1.0</text> 
    <text xml:lang="de">Stichprobe 1.0</text> 
    <!-- added AIR 25 -->
    <text xml:lang="da">Prøve 1.0</text><!-- danish -->
    <text xml:lang="nb">Prøve 1.0</text><!-- norwegian -->
    <text xml:lang="iw">לִטעוֹם 1.0</text><!-- hebrew -->
    <!-- added AIR 30 -->
    <text xml:lang="in">Mencicipi 1.0</text><!-- indonesian -->
</name>

and for extra infos: why iw and not he ? why in and not id ?
