The long awaited Apollo runtime public alpha and SDK are now available for download on labs.adobe.com! You can now start getting your Flex apps over to the desktop and work with HTML content rendered right within the DisplayList. Can't wait to see what apps people come up with!
If you haven't had a chance yet, be sure to grab the free "Apollo for Adobe Flex Developers" book from labs as well. Great initiative by O'Reilly, and kudos to Mike Chambers and the other authors for making it available under a Creative Commons license!
You can expect me to do more than a few blog posts on Apollo in the coming days and weeks.
