Feature finally out of beta development
Adobe has released an update to its Flash Player utility for Mac OS X. Version 10.1.82.76, known as Gala during beta development, is the first iteration to support GPU-based hardware acceleration. The feature is geared for decoding HD content formatted in H.264.
Flash GPU acceleration requires a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M-based Macs, such as the older unibody MacBooks or Mac minis, along with models integrating 320M or GT 330M components. Users must also be running Mac OS X 10.6.3 to take advantage of the new feature.
Flash Player 10.1.82.76 is now available directly from Adobe. [via ByteArray.org]
