Flash Player 10

Flash Player 10 beta 2 was released on 7/2/2008 and includes new features and bug fixes. Adobe Flash Player 10, code-named "Astro," introduces new expressive features and visual performance improvements that allow interactive designers and developers to build the richest and most immersive Web experiences.  These new capabilities also empower the community to extend Flash Player and to take creativity and interactivity to a new level.

This public prerelease is an opportunity for developers and consumers to test and provide early feedback to Adobe on new features, enhancements, and compatibility with previously authored content.  Once you’ve installed Flash Player 10 beta, you can view interactive demos.  You can also help make Flash Player better by visiting all of your favorite sites, making sure they work the same or better than with the current player.

Key New Features

3D Effects - Easily transform and animate any display object through 3D space while retaining full interactivity.  Fast, lightweight, and native 3D effects make motion that was previously reserved for expert users available to everyone.  Complex effects are simple with APIs that extend what you already know.
