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 dunno, flash has been working very well on my linux laptop since the new betas. Below you can see me playing a 720p youtube video. My CPU utilization is 66%, but they are not throttled - running at 800Mhz only!They can go up to 2500Mhz (I'm using ondemand cpu governor).
