Aptana Studio now supports AIR SDK Beta 3

Last Friday Aptana released support for the Beta 3 AIR SDK.  This release was long overdue but does come with some exciting features. The most exciting in my opinion is the addition of the AIRIntrospector. This is a single JS file that when referenced in any HTML file allows inspection of your AIR application one keystroke away (F12). This introspector now brings to running AIR applications what developers have come accustom to having when developing with Firebug in Firebox, solid DOM and CSS inspection, a JavaScript console, and XHR monitoring.  The AIRIntrospector also adds an asset view that aggregates and in-lines the CSS and JavaScript in your application and a separate view for displaying the raw vs. rendered source.  Although you wouldn’t want to include the AIRIntrospector in your deployed application, it does give you the ability now to create a “debug” build of your AIR application.

Other added features in this plugin release include updated samples, new sandbox model examples, and improved application.xml configuration/generation.
