Flash 10.1 RC6 Released!

RC5 didn't last for very long and Adobe has already released RC6 before I even had a chance to mess around with RC5. You can download it here.

Flash 10.1 RC4 Released

Another week goes buy and yet again Adobe has released another Release Candidate for Flash 10.1. They are already up to Release Candidate 4 I have not tested it yet but plan to do so tomorrow. Give it a shot and if you aren't happy in the Add-ons section I have Beta 1 and RC1 available for download. Head over to the official Flash 10.1 page for the download.

Issues that have been fixed in this release:
*Flash player crashes after network cable is unplugged.
*Seeking through a video via a progress slider doesn’t show enough frames.
*Certain videos play with no sound and then stop playing.
*In Firefox, streaming videos will halt on some occasions after a few minutes.
*Flash movies with a transparent mode don't play in applications.
*insertion point not visible for input text field when using embedded fonts.
*General stability and performance improvements
*Many issues involving video playback have been fixed in this release, and users may need to get updated video drivers ATI, NVidia, Broadcom, or Intel.
*Corrupt swfs on a page can cause the entire page to render improperly (http://it.eurosport.yahoo.com/)
*In some cases, XML declarations lose the trailing brace.
*ShaderJob.start now produces an ArgumentError with previously (10.0.x) functioning code
*TouchEvent only fires after first touch in MultitouchInputMode.TOUCH_POINT
