There is a big road btw Air 2.6 and Air 4.0 . And this don't means adobe is
supporting linux it means apache flex is still supporting linux.

The article never said that they are not supporting pepper, they are
definitely doing it. But pepper  plugin only supports chrome, is true that
Mozilla don't have any intention to work in pepper (shame Mozilla) , the
last version you can get working  except chrome is 11.2 (which I am ok for
now)


regards

Misleading title for the article.

FTA, Adobe has worked with Google to support Pepper Plugin API which brings
Flash Player to Linux [1]

As for AIR, Apache Flex 4.12 still supports AIR 2.6.  So, there is nothing
preventing anyone from building AIR apps for Linux today.

Thanks,
