Adobe to release AIR 3, Flash Player 11 tonight

At its MAX tech conference, Adobe promised that it will release Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 at 9PM Pacific Time (midnight) on Monday. At the same time, LG and TiVo have become the latest partners to bring Flash-based apps using AIR to connected TVs and digital home devices. The latest code from Adobe will allow hardware-accelerated 2D and 3D graphics rendering using Stage 3D.

The new releases allow 1,000 times faster rendering performance over Flash Player 10 and AIR 2. This can result in 60FPS rendering and console-quality games, Adobe claims. A production release of AIR 3 will let users convert code to native apps for desktop platforms as well as Android, BlackBerry Tablet OS, and iOS.

Samsung Smart TVs already support Adobe Flash and will continue after the new update.

    hmmf

    To be completely fair, Adobe HAVE been (very very SLOWLY) making Flash better ... in tiny increments over quite a long period (Steve published "Thoughts on Flash" a year and a half ago, and the stuff he went over has only marginally been addressed in that time). Maybe Flash 11 will set a new standard (I hope so, but I'm very doubtful).

    In terms of performance, there's really nowhere to go but up ... but just as importantly, have they really done anything to address the crippling security and stability issues?

    What WHAT?

    What're you guys all talking about? Really? C'mon.. Adobe has made significant strides in waiting for hardware vendors to up their specs to better handle the crappware know as Flash. By version 56, it'll run exactly as everyone hopes it will on quantum computers.
