  • Hardware based image scaling
  • Full screen support on Linux
  • Support for HE-AAC, an advanced audio encoding
  • Multicore support

To get the update, available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris, visit Adobe Flash Player Download Center.

At the same time, Adobe announced Adobe Media Player: “the first application from Adobe built on Adobe AIR, [that] will leverage both H.264 video and HE-AAC audio support. Adobe Media Player takes Flash streaming video experiences outside the Web browser delivering more viewing options, such as watching videos anytime, anywhere.”

Adobe Media Player will be available in early 2008 according to the same press release.
