By Adobe / IO, 11 Jun 2010
Adobe on 10 June announced the release of the Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. The company said the Android version will be coming later in June.
According to the Adobe Flash team’s blog, the new Flash Player 10.1 will boast better performance and power management, as well as improvements to video. The player will also have multi-touch and private browsing capabilities.
On the Mac side of things, Paul Betlem in the Flash Team blog said Mac performance was “an explicit focus”, and that the new Flash Player will see all-round performance improvements-- from more efficient CPU utilisation to faster video playback.
The AIR 2 update is the “most significant update to AIR since its original release two years ago”, Adobe said in a blog post.
The update uses less CPU and memory, and introduces new features and APIs for developers. Improvements to HTML support are also some of the optimisations in AIR 2.
