    Doesn't work here (even Adobe's test page). Went back to previous 07xxxx release.

    This release is a clear regression, when you do ldd on it you see this:

    ./libflashplayer.so: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by ./libflashplayer.so)
    libnss3.so => not found
    libsmime3.so => not found
    libssl3.so => not found
    libplds4.so => not found
    libplc4.so => not found
    libnspr4.so => not found

    That means it is too new for Debian etch.

    you should use gnash on debian to be more coherent to debians policy. some times I don't understand debian users. sorry.

    Ouch. I'd say that was a problem for Adobe then...

    Quick question, what about Flash content overlapping navigation menu on a lot of sites? Has that been fixed within Flash 10?

    Yes, that transparent menu/background things are fixed - all overlapping stuff works (example see the menus in adobe's own website ). In fact I remember I was happy to see it fixed in the version released in May itself .

    Although a thing to note - sometimes sites with such overlapping menus crash, like nvidia.com (although I don't know its because of overlapping menus or heavy flash'ing in general).

    On a related note, the website crashing thing is/was very frequent with firefox 3.0.X. Fortunately, I have been content with firefox 3.1 trunk (minefield).

    Also here is something - on my year old Gentoo (glibc 2.5, gcc 4.1.2, ..), minefield with this latest flash beta works perfectly. But on Ubuntu 8.04.1, firefox is buggy as expected (nvidia.com crashes for example), but minefield also has some glitches - example playing youtube videos fullscreen hangs the browser.

    The two nagging issues for me that have been fixed with this rc - some flash sites are faster and more perfect (like yahoo.com, nvidia.com, bbc.com), playing youtube videos in high quality no longer says " video no longer available.
