A month ago Adobe had pushed out its Flash Player 10 Release Candidate for Linux and their other supported platforms. Flash Player 10 introduces new 3D features, updated APIs, V4L2 web-camera support, and a variety of other improvements. All of this new work though has led to another test release. This afternoon Adobe has released this new update on Adobe Labs. The Linux-specific fixes in this release include many Linux web-camera fixes, full-screen optimizations, Shader jobs for custom filters and effects returning an incorrect type, and Speex fixes. This updated Flash Player 10 RC also carries a number of multi-platform fixes too. The full change-log can be read in the Flash Player 10 release notes.
