Neat right. A new Flash Player version. Or are these updates just old news as soon as they are news. Well this one does have some cool enhancements. You can read the full skinny here. Aside from the video playback enhancements which Adobe actually says “you probably won’t notice”, here’s some cool stuff…
Along with the new Stage Video architecture, we’re adding features in Flash Player 10.2 to enable even more polished experiences.
- Video at its best is immersive, so Flash Player allows you jump to true full screen playback with one click. Withmultiple display full screen support in Flash Player 10.2, you can now easily watch your favorite videos in true full screen on one display while you multitask on another and get someworkdone (or not).
- Added support forcustom native mouse cursors lets designers and developers create their own static or animated cursors with silky smooth responsiveness, enabling richer game and application interfaces.
- New sub-pixel text rendering enhancements leverage Adobe typography research to further enhance text readability, especially for complex character-based languages.
- Support is included for the GPU rendering technology in Microsoft’s upcoming Internet Explorer 9 browser.
