Adobe Releases Flash Player 10.2

Adobe has announced the release of Flash Player 10.2 for Mac, Windows and Linux. According to the company, this version of the software brings support for Adobe's new Stage Video technology, which leverages full hardware acceleration for smoother playback with significantly lower CPU consumption.

Stage Video lets websites take advantage of full hardware acceleration of the entire video pipeline. This builds on the H.264 hardware accelerated decoding in Flash Player 10.1. Stage Video hardware acceleration means that Flash Player can play even higher quality video while using dramatically less processing power, giving users a better experience, greater performance, and longer battery life. In our testing across supported systems, we've found it's up to 34 times more efficient.

Put another way, Flash Player using Stage Video can effortlessly play beautiful 1080p HD video with just 1-15% CPU usage on a common Mac or Windows computer - working across platforms and browsers, it will enable the best video experience for the most people.

Flash Player 10.2 also includes support for full screen mode with multiple monitors, native custom mouse cursors, and sub-pixel text rendering. It should also be noted that this version of Flash Player marks the end of support for Power PC-based Macs.
