Gets 64-bit support, 7.1-channel surround, Stage3D
Adobe has rolled out the beta build of its eleventh itteration of the Flash Player for Windows, Mac and Linux. The new version of Flash Player brings quite a few updates including the native 64-bit support and Stage 3D graphics rendering.

In addition to the new beta of the Flash Player 11, Adobe also released the new beta of Adobe AIR 3 for Windows and Mac. The new feature for AIR is the Captive Runtime that has already seen on iOS platform, but will now be available on desktop as well.

As noted, the new Flash Player 11 brings native 64-bit support and should now take full advantage of 64-bit operating systems and 64-bit web browsers on Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. Another neat new feature is the Stage 3D graphics rendering, a new method of 2D and 3D rendering supported with a new Stage 3D API. Stage3D API is a set of low-level GPU-accelerated APIs and should bring significant performance gains via GPU hardware acceleration and capability to get 2D and 3D across multiple screens and devices.

The rest of the features for the new Flash Player 11 include H.264/AVC SW Encode for camera encoding that brings higher compression efficiency and industry wide support for real-time communications, as well as the Native JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) support that enables ActionScript programmers to take advantage of fast parsing and generation of JSON-formatted data.

The new beta version of the Adobe Flash Player 11 also brought protected HHTP Dynamic Streaming, support for TLS Secure Sockets, G.711 audio compression for telephony, 7.1-channel audio support and much more.
