By | September 16, 2010 | 2 Comments

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:
- Video playback issues may appear on certain websites such as Hulu.com, Audi.co.uk, and nbc.com.
- Mouse interactivity in the Settings UI dialog does not work using Internet Explorer 9. Keyboard navigation works as expected. Please pardon our dust.
- Internet Explorer 9 is not yet final. As such, Adobe is continuing to work with Microsoft to resolve critical issues before the final release of Internet Explorer 9.
- 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!
