Flash Player 10.2

Send Article to a Friend

With much fanfare, Adobe has announced the release of Flash Player 10.2. The highlight of the new version is Stage Video, which Adobe says offers “a full hardware accelerated video pipeline for best-in-class, beautiful video across platforms and browsers.” Also included in the release is support for custom native mouse cursors, new full-screen support for multiple monitors, and enhanced sub-pixel rendering that should result in improved typography. (Free, 5.54 MB)

 

New for iOS 8: TextExpander 3 with custom keyboard.
Set up short abbreviations which expand to larger bits of text,
such as “Tx” for “TextExpander”. With the new custom keyboard,
you can expand abbreviations in any app, including Safari and
Mail. <http://smle.us/tetouch3-tb>
