The New York Times and Adobe Systems have launched Times Reader 2.0, an enhanced version of the digital newspaper reader with online/offline reading capabilities, powered by Adobe AIR software, a component of the Adobe Flash Platform.

The New York Tines said that Times Reader 2.0 is now available on any computer running Windows, Mac OS or Linux operating systems. Times Reader 2.0 mirrors the printed newspaper through improved navigation and functionality.

New features of Times Reader 2.0 on Adobe AIR include: enhanced online/offline reading capabilities; capability to download the latest news section every five minutes from, full text search feature; and integrated interactive version of The New York Times premium crossword puzzle.

Michele Turner, vice president of product marketing for the platform business unit at Adobe, said: The new Times Reader on Adobe AIR provides a highly readable, engaging mix of The New York Times print and web editions. By leveraging the Flash Platform, using Adobe Flex Builder to create the application and deploying it on Adobe AIR, The New York Times is showcasing what is possible today with digital publishing, by delivering a branded rich internet application outside the browser that provides a closer, consistent connection to readers.
