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.

Sooooo many inaccurate comments today!

Yes, including yours. :-)

First of all, when your system runs 64 bit, and flash 32bits.. ONLY FLASH has 2gb limitation. You run it into a wrapper until FF 3.6.4 (which has its own wrapper).

On my Ubuntu 10.04 (64-bit) system, if I copy the 32bit flash plugin (*.so file) into Firefox's plugin folder, it doesn't show up at all in the about:plugins page - flash is completely disabled.

So back to the older v10.0 64-bit flash plugin.
