Adobe launches Flash Player 10

By on October 15, 2008, 11:42 AM
Adobe today officially released the tenth version of its ubiquitous Flash player plug-in, bringing new “expressive features” for developers and a performance boost for users. The new version offers a number of improvements such as native support for 3D, a new text rendering engine, and integration with Adobe's Pixel Bender technology.

The company has also included a system where the stream will automatically adapt to bandwidth conditions, allowing for smoother video and audio playback. Adobe Labs has assembled several demos showing off the new features on its website, which you can check out here. Flash Player 10 is available now on all platforms, including Linux.

I upgraded mine this morning as soon as it came out and it's working great. I would like to simply take this opportunity to thank Adobe for providing this extremely valuable tool. There is so much on the web these days that is flash-based and Adobe has provided this most excellent program to all of us and for "FREE".
