Adobe has today issued their first release candidate for the forthcoming Flash Player 11.0 release.
The first beta of Flash Player 11 came in July and was christened with mainline 64-bit support
. The 32-bit and 64-bit Flash Player builds are now in sync for Windows and Linux. A month later was a second beta
and now we're up to RC stage.
Besides mainline x86_64 architecture support, Adobe Flash Player 11 also exposes the Stage 3D API for providing Flash 3D support, a new audio compression method for telephony purposes, JPEG-XR support, H.264/AVC software encoding, vector printing support, and much more. Unfortunately it still lacks support for the VA-API video acceleration method, but is still limited to NVIDIA VDPAU and Broadcom Crystal HD.
