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.

I wonder about the Mac OS X version since Safari runs as 64-bit, though Firefox, Chrome, and Opera do not.

Firefox and Chrome, and AFAIK Opera, all run 64-bit on 64-bit Linux systems.

64-bit Safari uses trickery to work with 32-bit plugins, so it'll still work.

The 64-bit Firefox builds won't, however, just like on Windows.

Safari uses a seperate process for the plugins, which then can run in 32bit.

i read somewhere that after this 10.1 release they'll start focusing on 64bit builds.. even for Windows.. now how long can that take?

And Firefox nightlies have started to come with a 64 bit installer.. yummy..
