Yesterday, Adobe has released a Beta version of Flash Player 10.2 bringing some nice enhancements, including: hardware acceleration support.

What’s New?

Stage Video hardware acceleration

Stage Video can dramatically decrease processor usage and enables higher frame rates, reduced memory usage, and greater pixel fidelity and quality.

Internet Explorer 9 hardware accelerated rendering support
Flash Player takes advantage of hardware accelerated graphics in Internet Explorer 9, utilizing hardware rendering surfaces to improve graphics performance and enable seamless composition.

Native custom mouse cursors
Developers can define custom native mouse cursors, enabling user experience enhancements and improving performance.

Support for full screen mode with multiple monitors
Full screen content will remain in full-screen on secondary monitors, allowing users to watch full-screen content while working on another display.

Download (32-bit only).

    why not offering us direct download links? (for all platforms)
    I hate using firefox or IE using adobes site. always to install this downloader for a 2mb file. really crazy! But mostly after a few google searches I found the links. Maybe this would be easier if you add them here in the blog (or on the tracker!)

    I wonder why they took down the 64 bit builds. I can’t even find the older Sqaure version.

    Beta 3 and final by 2011 i hope, Cooliris don’t work with Chrome inside flash, they still got million problems to fix, flashing full screen flash on Linux, and so on and so on…i hope that 10.3 will fix all that.
