flash player 50x50

Adobe has released version 10 of its Adobe Flash Player for the Linux (includes support for Ubuntu 7 and 8), Windows and Mac platforms. Some key features included in the release are 3D transformation and animation, custom filters and effects, advanced audio processing and GPU acceleratioin.

I’ve updated the Flash Player on my system to checkout the new Adobe Flash Player 10. The update came out smoothly I just downloaded the Debian package for Ubuntu 8.04 and did the following on a terminal session:

$ sudo dpkg -i install_flash_player_10_linux.deb
[sudo] password for kihbord:
