Adobe Previews 64-Bit Flash Player

Adobe has released a preview version of the new Flash player, which supports Mac, Linux and Windows 64-bit systems.

Codenamed 'Square', the new Flash player is compatible with the latest web technologies being released to the market.

Adobe wrote on a blog post that the web browser plug-in has been developed in collaboration with the Internet Explorer team at Microsoft and is supported on the newest Internet Explorer 9 web browser.

The latest Flash plug-in has been designed to compliment the graphics acceleration capabilities that are found in the IE 9 beta browser.

Adobe said: “In our internal testing, we’ve seen significant improvements in Flash Player graphics performance – exceeding 35% in Internet Explorer 9 Beta compared to Flash Player running in previous versions of IE.”

The company also warned that the new Flash Player was preview version, meant for broad testing, and so some of the features might not work as they will on the full version.
