If you’re rocking a 64-bit operating system, you are probably acutely aware that your 64-bit browser has to utilize Adobe’s Flash plug-in in 32-bit mode. Yesterday, Adobe announced a sneak preview of their 64-bit Flash implementation they are calling “Square.” As the press release states:
This preview includes support for two new areas, namely enhanced support for Microsoft’s Internet Explorer 9 Beta and native 64-bit support for all major desktop operating systems including Linux, Mac, and Windows. [...] The community has been very vocal around the need for native 64-bit support and we’ve heard you loud and clear. Today we’re also sharing a refresh of the Linux 64-bit version of Flash Player together with the first preview of both the 64-bit Windows and Mac versions.
The company is encouraging those with 64-bit browsers to give the new code, complete with 32 extra bits, a try. Hit the read link for more information and the download instructions. More →
