Adobe Flash Player 11 has been in beta for what seems like forever, but starting next month, it will be official along with AIR 3. The new features will include accelerated 2D and 3D graphics, but the biggest news is that it will be 1,000 times faster than Flash Player 10 and AIR 2.
Other additions will include allowing developers to package AIR 3 along with their apps in a single install, HD video quality for multiple platforms, DRM for video rentals, and 64-bit support. Allowing developers to package AIR 3 with their apps makes it a lot easier for users in that they won’t have to download and install AIR separately.
“With this milestone release Adobe pushes the envelope of what is possible on the Web with a typical PC and opens up a new world of immersive, high-performance gaming experiences,” said Danny Winokur, vice president and general manager of Platform, Adobe.
