Adobe Outs Flash Player 10.2
Adobe today announced a few details about its forthcoming 10.2 version of Adobe Flash Player. While most of the benefits will be seen on desktop machines, Adobe did announce that 10.2 will be brought to mobile devices. The biggest new feature in Flash Player 10.2 is called Stage Video, which uses hardware acceleration to improve video performance. According to Adobe, Stage Video drastically reduces processor and memory requirements of Flash Player. The first mobile devices to support Flash Player 10.2 will be those running Android 3.0 Honeycomb and RIM's PlayBook tablet. Adobe didn't say when it would become available.
