Adobe Launches New Version of Flash Player Software

Adobe Systems, a diversified software company, has launched version 10 of its Flash Player software.

According to the company, interactive designers and developers can leverage the new expressive features and visual performance improvements in Flash Player 10 for better creative control to deliver the compelling web applications, interactive content and high quality video to users across multiple browsers and all major operating systems.

Adobe claims that Flash Player 10 builds on the capabilities of the world's most pervasive application runtime with new support for custom filters and effects, native 3D transformation and animation, advanced audio processing, and GPU hardware acceleration.

Adobe Flash Player 10 also extends the expressive capabilities of the Adobe Creative Suite 4 product line with new levels of Adobe Flash technology integration to streamline collaboration and enhance the design/develop workflow, according to Adobe.

David Wadhwani, general manager and vice president of the platform business unit at Adobe, said: "Designers and developers know if they deliver video, online games, rich internet applications and other interactive experiences using Adobe Flash Player, they can reliably reach the entire web. Flash Player 10 continues to set the pace for internet innovation, and we're excited to see how the community is already using it to create an entirely new class of experiences not previously achievable on the web."
