Blargh. I know this is not a *big* deal, but it frustrates me that the attention to detail and problematic culture of Adobe are evident from even this changelog item above: "On OS X, some fonts do not rending properly when viewing Flash content in the Google Chrome browser (3506958)"

Having been part of Adobe beta cycles and testing for many years, I am just more and more frustrated with this company and it's directions. Even after offering many suggestions that would help tremendously, it seems that they are oblivious to outside influence and correctional suggestions.

I personally don't care about the concept as the apps I have seen written are below average in general. I could actually forgive this if there was a way to deploy to an enterprise. Once again Adobe has figured out how to make their bad installation ideas worse than before. Without a logical way to install this in mass, how does Adobe expect it to be supported in mass?

Well, based on no major reported security holes I'd say this is at least better than Java as a cross-platform compiler. Then again that's really not saying much now is it...?

Why no simple way to find out which version of Adobe Air is installed? Something like a small app or a prefs pane which could also let you download and install the latest version?

I did track down a small Air app which tells you which version you have installed, but surely this should be something that Adobe provide?

Best way I've found is to spend a couple minutes and download Air here from MacUpDate. The installer will tell you what version you have installed, and you can choose to update it (if it's old) or cancel.

That's all very well, but not a very efficient way of going about things. Surely it would be much better for Adobe to provide a way of simply and in a straightforward fashion finding out which version you currently have? Is that really too much to ask?

@Nick

Just bring up "Adobe AIR Uninstaller" or "Adobe AIR Application Installer" in Spotlight, highlight it and hold down the command key. That's the easy way to check the version of most apps installed on your system.

@Negritude. Thanks for pointing this out. However checking the version number of the installer is not a totally reliable or accurate way of checking the version number of an application. In this case the version number of my installer is 3.5, which may be an indication of the main version number, but with no hint of the sub-version.

I still think that Adobe should provide a more obvious way of finding out what version of Air you have installed!

@ Nick

I'm not sure why you're not seeing the full version number, because on my system, I do. Are you sure you're looking at the program files that were already installed on your system? They should be in your /Applications or /Applications/Utilities folder. One or both of the ones I mentioned will show you the full version number, including the sub-version. It's always been this way. What version of OS X are you using?

Well here's the thing - if you do a Get Info on the file in the Finder then all you get is a straight 3.5, but if you check it out using Spotlight in the way you suggest then you get the whole string.

Although I thank you for the tip, I hope that you're not suggesting that this is a straightforward way of finding out which version is installed, which is what I am calling for and think that Adobe should provide.

I agree with Nick Collingridge. It's bizarre Adobe seemingly wants to keep the exact version of AIR a secret.

Thanks Negritude for the Spotlight method tip, although it doesn't work in Snow Leopard.
