Adobe Flash Player 10 Officially Released
Phoronix: Adobe Flash Player 10 Officially Released
Yesterday the Free Software Foundation released a beta update for Gnash, the Flash Player that's written by the community and is comprised of all open-source code, but today Adobe has updated its official Flash Player. Adobe's Flash Player 10 has been officially released for all supported platforms -- Linux included...
Oh God, Alleluja i would say... didn't have any chance to give it a try, hope it is worth it, especially on the cpu resources consumption and on the "always on top" issue.
Well they forgot the Debian 4.0 users which is still the current Debian stable. Since last beta it was impossible to use it and direct download links are not available for the older betas.
And still no native 64bit support... *sigh*
I second that, when will they give us 64bit support.
Or even better, when fill flash become something nobody uses, because coding for it is considered childish and you get beaten for it in the cafeteria from those big bodied boys (and girls) who can code c...
Basically it is a trivial problem:
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/iceweasel ldd libflashplayer.so
./libflashplayer.so: /lib/tls/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by ./libflashplayer.so)
shows that only the player is compiled against a too new system since last beta. Hopefully Adobe recompiles it fast, because autoinstall is now Flash 10 which will never work this way.
And still wmode is broken in x64, still pegs out a processor core to 100% in fullscreen mode..... sigh....Incompetency thy name is Adobe.
Hopefully, Gnash will evolve into something useful. Let's hope the opening-up of the Flash format earlier this year will bring results.
I 'll second that,wmode still broken in sid x64

Another issue that seems to be beyond them, is that the player does not block xscreensaver when playing fullscreen.
So basically we finally have 'proper' fullscreen support with linux, which just utterly fails to be 'really' usable.
