Adobe previews 64-bit Flash with IE9 support

Posted on Thursday, September 16 2010 @ 14:16:54 CEST by

Adobe published a 64-bit preview of Flash Player, this new "Flash Player Square" release has been enhanced to directly support the hardware-accelerated graphics capabilities in Microsoft's new IE9 Beta.
Adobe® Flash® Player "Square" is a preview release that enables native 64-bit support on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows operating systems, as well as enhanced support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 beta.

We have made this preview available so that users can test existing content and new platforms for compatibility and stability. Because this is a preview version of Flash Player, we don’t expect it to be as stable as a final release version of Flash Player. Use caution when installing Flash Player "Square" on production machines.

The key new capabilities in the Flash Player "Square" preview are:
  • 64-bit support — Native support for 64-bit operating systems and 64-bit web browsers on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows.
  • Internet Explorer 9 hardware accelerated rendering support — Enhanced support for Internet Explorer 9 Beta. It takes advantage of hardware accelerated graphics in Internet Explorer 9 Beta, utilizing hardware rendering surfaces to improve graphics performance and enable seamless composition.

    The following known issues exist in Flash Player “Square”:
  • Video playback issues may appear on certain websites such as Hulu.com, Audi.co.uk, and nbc.com.
  • Content protection using Adobe Flash Access is not currently supported on 64-bit platforms in this preview release.
  • Mouse interactivity in the Settings UI dialog does not work using Internet Explorer 9. Keyboard navigation works as expected. Please pardon our dust.
  • Internet Explorer 9 is not yet final. As such, Adobe is continuing to work with Microsoft to resolve critical issues before the final release of Internet Explorer 9.
  • This release will not receive automatic update notifications, and users will need to manually uninstall this preview before installing a standard shipping release of Flash Player
  • You can download the test version for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X over at Adobe's website.
