Adobe Systems today announced it will release the remoting and messaging technologies used in Flex, Flash and other Adobe products as open source projects. Because the technologies are fairly mature, Adobe isn't so much looking for help from the open source community as it is looking to get its technology into more hands.
Adobe has released the final version of its Flash Player Update 3, an important update that brings several new features:
"I’m sitting in a session at Adobe Max Europe listening to Senior Product Manager Laurel Reitman talking about what a great open platform Adobe is creating."
The latest releases of Ubuntu for desktop and server are available today for download.
The BBC and Adobe has announced a strategic relationship that will see the BBC adopt Adobe's Flash Player software, allowing Mac and Linux users to use the broadcaster's iPlayer streaming video service for the first time.
This update, codenamed “Moviestar,” includes new features, enhancements and bug fixes for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux versions of Flash Player 9.
"We're pleased to announce the release of Adobe Reader 8.1.1 on Linux and Sparc Solaris. This release comes packed with scores of new tools and features and improvements in the user interface and performance..."
There is a new beta of the Flash Player Update available. That's right: the beta is even available for Linux (same time as Windows and Mac).
