Adobe: 64-bit Flash Player Later This Year

Filed under
Software

I received a response from Stefan Offerman of Adobe to my article published Tuesday titled One Year Later: Adobe Abandons 64-bit Linux Again. I'm pleased to report that the lack of a native 64-bit Flash Player does appear to be temporary.

Assuming Adobe successfully delivers on this promise it is good news for the Linux community, for all users of 64-bit operating systems and, of course, for Adobe as well.

In the previous article I wrote about the problematic nature of running a beta from last November with known security vulnerabilities and no updates.
