Adobe Flash 11 Released, Ready for Download

The latest ’stable’ (stop chuckling at the back) version of Adobe’s Flash Player has been released.

Adobe Flash 11 adds native 64-bit support, NVidia VDPAU and Broadcom Crystal HD acceleration, as well as a slew of technical features for web developers and flash programmers to take advantage of.

Also debuting is Adobe’s Stage 3D technology which, Adobe claim, lets ‘developers …deliver cinematic, console-quality games both in browsers and in apps‘.


Adobe Flash Player 11 can be found on Adobe’s website @


Adobe Flash Player 11 – including the native 64bit build – can also be installed from the Canonical Partner Repo in Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10.

64bit Ubuntu Hardy through Oneiric users may prefer to upgrade/install using the unofficial Flash PPA maintained by SevenMachine.

Do note that at the time of writing this has yet to be updated with the stable release, and contains a previous beta build.

To do this add ppa:sevenmachines/flash to your Software Sources (See here), update and then install the ‘flashplugin64-installer’ package from Synaptic or the Ubuntu Software Centre.
