Adobe ships Flash Player 10

Filed under
Software

Adobe Systems Inc. began shipping its Adobe Flash Player 10 browser plug-in Wednesday with new features aimed at helping designers and developers build interactive content and online videos.

This version of Flash, which Adobe launched in a beta version in May, includes support for custom filters and special effects, native 3D transformation and animation, advanced audio processing and GPU hardware acceleration, Adobe said. It also includes a new text engine aimed at providing designers and developers with more text layout options.

"A lot of the features in [Flash Player] 10 are all about providing interactive designers and developers unprecedented creative control," said Tom Barclay, senior product marketing manager in Adobe's platform business unit. "Designers and developers...can transform and animate 2D content into the 3D space. That functionality is now exposed in the form of tooling in Flash Creative Suite 4 (CS4) to allow designers to do 3D transformation animation without having to write code."

That support for 3D transformation is one way Flash Player 10 extends the capabilities of the Adobe CS4 (also shipping today) with new levels of Flash integration, he added.
