Multimedia, AV It's been a very long wait, but the release is finally here: Adobe has released Flash Player 10.1. Since Flash has come under increasing scrutiny, there's a lot at stake here for Adobe. This release is supposed to use far less resources while still being faster, more stable, and more secure. Update: No 64bit Flash player for now - on any platform. The Linux beta has been axed.

There might be a quality gap between linux distributions as well - I remember having to do the same manual copying, killing nspluginviewer, etc before (mainly on kubuntu). Since I've been on Arch linux, I never had a problem with flash. I use chromium now (6.0.420.0 (48484)) - didn't have to do anything, flash worked automatically once I installed it. I also use Firefox from time to time, no problems there either. The only hurdle I had was initial setup, for I wanted flash not to block the sound system (hence I needed pulseaudio, then setting up a pulse enabled xine engine for KDE, and mplayer-pulse). But that was a one time job, I did it in October last year. Since then, I repeat, I never had a single problem with flash on either Firefox or Chromium.
