Adobe Flash Player 10.2 has been released and comes with some spanking new features.

It now supports Stage Videos which allows Flash to utilize your machines’s hardware acceleration features thus greatly improving performance.

10.2 also introduces support for multiple monitors. No more headaches when trying to multi-task while watching a video, this is when you can only play flash videos on one screen and not the other.

Another cool feature is the support for native mouse cursors. Developers can now design and implement custom cursors for their work. I see this really useful for educational software.

And finally some sub-pixel rendering to improve text in your flash videos. Advertisers will love this more…..

Let your browser update your flash player or grab it manually from Adobe.

If you’re on Ubuntu, simply run the command below to get updated.

#> sudo apt-get update
#> sudo apt-get upgrade
