Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Adobe Flash Player 10.2 beta was released today with preliminary support for Stage Video which is supposed to reduce the performance impact while playing back video content across all platforms. The new version also brings enhanced text rendering, and two popular requests from the community: a native custom mouse cursors API and support for full screen playback with multiple monitors.

You can read the full release announcement, HERE.

Unfortunately, the new Adobe Flash Player 10.2 beta does not come with 64bit packages. A note on the Adobe labs page states that:

The Flash Player 10.2 beta does not replace the Flash Player "Square" preview release.

Flash Player "Square" preview release does come with 64bit packages so hopefully when 10.2 final will be out, it will include 64bit downloads.
