64-Bit Flash Player for Windows, Mac and LinuxGood news, everyone, Adobe has just released a preview build of 64-bit Flash Player for Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.

Known issues:

- This release will not receive automatic update notifications, and users will need to manually uninstall this preview before installing a standard shipping release of Flash Player

We are one step closer to 64-bit mainstream web browsers!
