Adobe Delivers Flash Player 9 for Linux


New Release Joins Adobe Flex 2 for Linux-based RIA Creation

Adobe 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. Additionally, Linux developers can create, test and deploy rich Internet applications (RIAs) on the Linux platform using the free Adobe Flex® 2 Software Developers Kit (SDK), 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 (AVM2), 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. The Tamarin source code is available via CVS, an open source version control and collaboration system, from the Mozilla site http://www.mozilla.org/projects/tamarin/
