Apollo alpha released to developers: offline enabled web applications
The Apollo developer pre-release looks compelling for applications that need to continue running when the user does not have an Internet connection. That said, I think that Adobe will get real competition from the open source OpenLaszlo system. Reason? Because OpenLaszlo is open source, great funding, and lots of Fortune 100 customers using it. I would like to see Adobe compete by releasing the Flex 2 SDK as open source (it is now free as in beer).
