What is the incubator program? Here are some FAQ’s from Adobe.

FAQ: Adobe® AIR® and Flash® Player Incubator

1. What is the Adobe AIR and Flash Player Incubator?
The Adobe AIR and Flash Player Incubator is a place for our runtimes product teams to share new features that are either under development or under consideration for inclusion in future versions of the runtimes. Unlike our beta releases, capabilities that you see in the Incubator builds may or may not be supported in future releases of the runtimes.

2. Who is this Incubator program for?
This program is especially suitable for more adventurous developers who are willing to experiment with software features in early development stages and may or may not be included in future product releases.

3. Why does Adobe have an Incubator program?
Adobe’s product development philosophy is to engage in an open exchange and involve our community of passionate developers in early stages of the development cycle. Your feedback is critical to our on-going innovation efforts for the Flash Platform.

4. What’s the difference between the Incubator program and the beta program?
While the goals of both programs are similar — get early feedback from the developer community, the key differences include:
- The Incubator program allows us to get a community of developers involved in a much earlier development stage than what we do in the beta program.
- The Incubator program will be focused on a collection of new features that may or may not make into any future releases, where as the beta program allows developers to experience and evaluate an upcoming release that has reached the feature-complete stage.

5. What should I expect from the Incubator program?
We plan to release new Flash Player or AIR Incubator builds on a regular basis. To get updates on new builds and features, please subscribe to the RSS feed on Adobe runtimes release blog. These are early builds of AIR or Flash Player and may not be as stable as a final release. However, the current released features should still work as expected. Please file bugs for new features highlighted in the Incubator and new bugs for current released features. The availability of AIR and Flash Player and supported OS and platforms may vary on the downloads page between updates to this program.

6. Why should I participate in the Incubator program?
The Incubator program provides you the opportunity to get an early look at what our engineers are developing for two of the most ubiquitous runtime technologies in the world. By being an active participant in the program, you’ll be able to influence the future of the leading runtime technologies with the Adobe engineering team.

7. Who will read my comments and answer my questions?
Your feedback is very important to us. Your comments and questions will be read and answered by Adobe engineers who are responsible for these features.

8. What will happen to these features?
These features are under development or under consideration for future releases. Depending on the feedback we get from the community, some of these features will be incorporated into future releases of the runtimes.

9. I have ideas for new features, who do I talk to?
We welcome new ideas from the community. Please submit your ideas to us at
