Faster Adobe Flash 11 Beta 2 Released

A second beta release of Adobe Flash 11 has escaped into the wild.

Notable additions to the second beta appear to be minimal, with the stat junkies over at Phoronix concluding that “…the Linux binary [is] a lot faster and more stable than last month’s beta.” 

The first Beta, released mid July of this year, brought Broadcom Crystal HD support and smoother animations.


Adobe Flash 11 Beta 2  release can be downloaded from Adobe Labs.
