Adobe Flash 10.3 live for Android and desktop
Adobe chose Thursday evening to launch the completed version of Flash 10.3. Both the desktop plugin and the Android version (free, Market) bring noise cancellation for features like livestreaming or video chat as well as control panels and privacy controls native to the given platform. Mac users now get automatic notifications of new versions.
Requirements for Linux, Mac, and Windows users are fundamentally unchanged from 10.2 and can take advantage of hardware graphics acceleration if it exists. Android users still need at least Android 2.2, but tablet owners are urged to update to Android 3.1 when they can to get the best performance. Adobe also recommends these users jump to full screen to idle the web browser and get full performance.
