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.

And still no 64 bit player? Sigh.


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

Yes, since Snow Leopard Safari has been 64bit:

I'm bringing a second confirmation. Yes, the system monitor says "Intel (64-bit)" for Safari.

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.
