ADOBE SOLUTIONS FOR MOBILE AND DESKTOP PLATFORMS
Experience New and Enhanced Capabilities
Starting in June 2019 with the release of AIR 33, HARMAN will be providing the platform support and feature development for the AIR runtime and the SDK. AIR 33 will support 64-bit Android devices and will be available on a commercial basis. Further details will be released shortly, please check back here or email us at email@example.com to be informed when these are available.
HARMAN will also provide bespoke and embedded versions of Adobe AIR for other platforms and products, where the distribution does not meet requirements of the SDK license agreement. To know more, please contact a HARMAN representative at firstname.lastname@example.org
Drive Uninterrupted Business Outcomes
Adobe Flash Player will no longer be supported by Adobe or by any standard browsers beyond 2020. However, if the enterprise customers require Flash Player, then HARMAN will be able to offer them a solution that combines the regular Flash Player with customer’s SWF application. This will allow for a useful stop-gap for existing applications to continue to be used with little or no modifications, whilst long term plans for migration away from the Flash content are put into action.
HARMAN also offers alternative deployment and licensing models for Flash Player, for companies wishing to embed Flash Player into their own hardware or software products.
HARMAN also provides migration of Flash applications using Angular and TypeScript, and can leverage their expertise in the ActionScript and SWF technologies to accelerate conversion of the codebase and assets over to the HTML frameworks. Please contact your local HARMAN sales representative, or email@example.com, for an initial consultation to help determine the most appropriate migration path for your application.
Trusted, Long-term Partners
HARMAN’s partnership with Adobe started in 2006, although prior to this HARMAN had already been working on the integration of the Macromedia Flash Player onto Symbian-based mobile devices. HARMAN had been a key system integration partner within the Open Screen Project and also continued to work on the integration, extension and optimization of Adobe Flash Player and Adobe AIR for many customers in domains including automotive, digital home and consumer electronics.
During our continued partnership, HARMAN provided over 33 million licenses for the Adobe software across embedded platforms such as Linux, Windows and Android and on chipsets including 32- and 64-bit ARM, Intel and MIPS architectures. Now that Adobe are transitioning the ongoing support and maintenance of AIR, HARMAN is looking forward to working with the AIR developer ecosystem to drive the success of this cross-platform framework.

So … the heart of the thing is basically that
Starting in June 2019 with the release of AIR 33, HARMAN will be providing the platform support and feature development for the AIR runtime and the SDK. AIR 33 will support 64-bit Android devices and will be available on a commercial basis. Further details will be released shortly, …
In short, it seems, Harman dev team will replace Adobe dev team to maintain and update the AIR runtime and the AIR SDK.
Good news is they announcing that AIR 33 will indeed support Android 64-bit (so all the conspiracy theorists can go back crawling under their rock)
Bad news, seemingly, I may interpret that all wrong, is that Harman will provide those updates on a commercial basis; so AIR that was free all this time will not be free anymore?
“Further details will be released shortly, …” so let’s wait and see,
now I’m waiting for the official press paper / release / announcement from Adobe
Very personal comment
as a dev knowing all the advantages that AIR bring I don’t mind paying for it, but still it depends on the pricing, the licensing model, and many many things … it can be done very well as it can be done very wrong
I feel a bit sad that this pricing might stop newcomers using it as a kind of “stop gap”
So it is not an EOL, someone else will keep updating it, this also show that Adobe do not plan to open source it, yeah I will wait more infos on all that.
Now for all those assholes toxic fucking mother fuckers who complain every day about stupid shit, here you are happy I guess, you will be able to complain and pay for it now, and the more you complain the more they gonna make you pay for it, that will serve you well.
At least we have an example of what trolls and a toxic community can do to a project
