Flash Player upgraded
Adobe has released Adobe Flash Player 10 for the Mac. Fast on the heels of Adobe shipping its Creative Suite 4, Flash Player 10 arrives with CS 4 integration and collaborative features. It supports custom filters and effects (created in Adobe Pixel Bender), and 3D transformations and animations.
Flash Player 10 also supports GPU hardware acceleration and offers a new, flexible text layout engine. It adds vector data type for better error checking, dynamic streaming and the Speex audio codec, which offers a low-latency alternative for voice encoding.
The new player is available now as a free download. It supports Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, Safari 3 or higher and Firefox 2 and 3.
