    Yesterday afternoon the Adobe developers came out to release their first Adobe Flash Player 10.2 Beta for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux platforms.

      I have not tried it myself or know how reliable the source is, but you could try this:

        [Just like the Linux Steam client, which has not been canned and is still on the way.]
        And you know this based on what evidence?

        I personally think it's very likely that they were working on a Linux client, because of the leaked stuff. And I'd like to believe it's still on the cards, But when Valve have publicly stated that they are NOT working on one, you need to give a little more evidence when stating the contrary. Is there something you know that we don't?

            Competition is a good thing

            Now that HTML5, silverlight, and various opensource alternatives advance rapidly, Adobe will have to work harder.

              There is the 64-bit preview 3 out now also, but I don't think it has Stage Video.

              Anyways, video acceleration + multimonitor video is something I didn't expect from Adobe on Linux.

                  I don't notice anything new here (32 bits). CPU usage is high as usual.

                      Playing the harry potter HD trailer on youtube with this plugin, on a i7 with a geforce 275 gtx, not a single core goes above 10% usage.

                        Did they fix the glaring bug where the flash plugin stores temporary files in the user's home-directory browser cache rather than /tmp? Because that's really, really, really, really irritating.

                          So, 32bit nVidia users only?

                          Glad they've covered the majority.

                              The 10.2 codebase does have video acceleration, as I've been streaming fullscreen HD video from youtube ever since installing a preview version some time ago, with negligible CPU use.

                              I assume that it's based on shaders.
