/Mac: A brand new version of TweetDeck is out that ditches Adobe AIR and brings its customizable columns to native and Mac apps—though it's a bit more basic than the old version. 

Twitter is going through a major interface change , but TweetDeck users may not have realized that our favorite Twitter client is doing the same—likely to keep up with Twitter's overhaul, since Twitter now owns TweetDeck. 

TweetDeck released this update pretty silently—no word on their blog, and your current copy of TweetDeck won't notify you of the update because its an entirely new application. As such, we didn't even realize it happened for a few days—but you can head to TweetDeck.com right now to download the new client. 

The new client fixes a lot of the weird behavior caused by AIR in the old client. Everything feels a bit smoother, especially the scrolling. 

However, it's also missing a lot of the features that made the AIR client great, like keyboard shortcuts, color palette customizations, and lots of the other little settings that let you customize how you view Twitter. Hopefully these will come back soon, but TweetDeck has stayed pretty quiet about the entire rollout. Luckily, a lot of the things that make TweetDeck great—like a customizable column interface—are still there, and you can download the new client and try it out without uninstalling the AIR version you already have—they're two completely separate programs.
