Adobe systems has announced the beta versions of Adobe Air 2 and Adobe flash player 10.1 for the Windows, Mac and linux operating systems. The new AIR 2 features include enhanced support for mass storage devices and native application processes, as well as peer-to-peer and UDP networking.

The Flash Player 10.1 leverages hardware decoding of H.264 video on Windows PCs, netbooks and mobile devices where available, to conserve battery life and deliver an 'exceptional' video playback experience.

Adobe AIR 2 and Flash Player 10.1 also bring innovations and optimizations from mobile devices to the desktop. For example, designers and developers can now create entirely new types of applications that use multi-touch points and gestures on touch screen devices.

The Beta versions of Adobe Air 2 and Adobe Flash player 10.1 can be downloaded for free from Adobe Labs.
