Flash 9 for Linux

By   |  January 17, 2007

Linux users will now be able to view previously unviewable Flash-based websites now that Adobe have released a Linux version of Flash Player 9. This follows six months after the Windows and Mac versions were released.

This Linux version has met with praise from Red Hat and Novell, both of which will be bundling the player into future distributions later this year.

Features of the player include more efficient use of memory and the Actionscript Virtual Machine (AVM2), which improves scripting performance as much as 10 times.

This follows a beta version released in October last year (see Tectonic story) which ended fears that Linux may be left out of Adobe’s Flash agenda.

Adobe said that Linux developers can create, test and deploy rich Internet applications (RIAs) on the Linux platform using the free Adobe Flex 2 Software Developers Kit (SDK), Adobe Flash Player 9 and the free Flex Data Services 2 Express.

“Now the Linux community has full access to the high volume of Flash content and applications available on the Internet today, bringing Linux developers and users to the forefront of the Web 2.0 experience,” said Emmy Huang, senior product manager at Adobe.

Adobe recently contributed source code from the AVM2 to the Mozilla Foundation for use in a new open source project called Tamarin. With this project Mozilla aims to accelerate the development of a standards-based approach for creating rich and engaging Web applications that work across multiple platforms.
