Last month the first beta for Adobe Flash Player 10
was released for not only Windows but also Mac OS X and Linux at the same time. This beta release added new 3D effects, advanced text layout, an enhanced drawing API, and visual performance improvements, to just name a few of the many changes. Today, Adobe has pushed out a new beta for Adobe Flash Player 10, and as we've come to expect, the Linux version is too updated. This latest version of the Adobe Flash Player 10 for Linux adds support for the Flash windowless mode "wmode", Video 4 Linux 2 (V4L2) support for web cameras with Flash, new language support, improved speed, and improved stability. The Linux changes for Adobe Flash Player 10 have been talked about on their official Penguin.SWF blog
and it can be downloaded from Adobe Labs
. Unfortunately, there is still no native Linux 64-bit version of the official Adobe Flash Player, yet.
