Flash Player 10.1 Now Available for Download

Adobe Flash Player 10.1 has just been finalized, and is available for download from Adobe. Previously, it’s been available as a spiffy prerelease since June, but this is the real, final thing.

It doesn’t yet provide H.264 graphics acceleration for Mac or Linux, only for Windows — we’ll have to wait for Mac/Linux support — but it’s a welcome upgrade nevertheless, promising an uptick in performance across OSes. It also has the benefit of patching a major security hole in previous versions of Flash that allowed hackers to take control of computers via crashed Flash players.
