Adobe Flash Player 9: Now for Linux

Adobe has announced the availability of Adobe Flash Player 9 for Linux, the next-generation client runtime for engaging with Flash content and applications on Linux open source operating systems. Adobe Flash Player 9 delivers a consistent cross-platform experience and extends high performance and advanced features to the broadest set of developers and users to date. Additionally, Linux developers can create, test and deploy rich Internet applications on the Linux platform using the free Adobe Flex 2 Software Developers Kit, Adobe Flash Player 9 and the free Flex Data Services 2 Express.

Adobe Flash Player 9 for Linux vastly enhances user experiences with new capabilities such as efficient memory utilization, advanced features for graphics, video and text, as well as the ActionScript Virtual Machine, which allows up to 10 times faster scripting performance. Adobe recently contributed source code from the AVM2 to the Mozilla Foundation, which is hosting a new open source project called Tamarin to accelerate the development of a standards-based approach for creating rich and engaging Web applications that work across multiple platforms.
