  1. Adobe has released the finalized version of Flash 10.1 following months of pre-release builds. The browser plug-in's first public beta was pushed out last November, bringing hardware H.264 video acceleration to Windows machines, and most of the changes since then have revolved around that in some fashion – whether bug fixes or extending GPU support.

    Notice any improvements?
     
  4. After I followed your link this was what I got >> Version 10,0,42,34 installed successfully :D
    So where is 10.1 version?

    I'm a bit confused because at first I went to download the latest "Gala" version for OSX Snow Leopard. THEN I went to Adobe's official site and it says that 10.1 is officially available for OSX. I download it but when I try to install it, it tells me it will not because I have a newer version already installed...sooooo is the still in development Gala version different from the one Adobe is offering? I'm confused.
     
  7. What Adobe have not mentioned very clearly that version 10.1 includes Adobe Spyware! It allows content owners to check certificates and poll the originator without the users agreeing to it!

    Instead of allowing people to choose - Adobe are insisting that the software does this.

    Licenses are mentioned - that are not removed - Adobe points you to another location - and hides where they are actually located!

    This version should NOT be installed by anyone until Adobe allow user controls!

    Mine updated to 10.1 fine? actually on an oldish laptop but has an intel graphics card and seems to be a bit quicker rendering flash!

    I must've uninstalled that stupid Download Manager about 6 times now. And counting.

    Oddly enough, I got that same "Version 10,0,42,34" issue during an interim step of installation through FireFox, with the Adobe DLM also telling me it failed to install 10.1. But after closing that error message, the 10.1 setup jumped to the front and finished, and it showed the correct version installed on the final screen.

    Not exactly the smoothest update in the world... Perhaps it internally requires an update to Version 10,0,42,34 before it can complete the jump up to 10.1?
     
  14. I seemed to have the same issues that guest had . I downloaded after dlm installed in firefox and had the install error and showed old version still present. I uninstalled Flash through Add/ remove programs then downloaded the .exe for other windows browsers ( Not Internet Explorer ) and installed with installer , then checked version and it was new 10.1

    This seems to be a firefox and / or other than explorer? issue.

    Hope this helps someone out.

    IMO, any product that requires a Download Mgr is suspect - -
    right clicking and using Save Link As is all that 'should' ever be required - - but that's just me :wave:
