    Hey that are sure a lot of bug changes, time to rename it Adobe Flash Player 9+ 😉

  2. Only crash bugs fixed…i guess we’re really close to launch now 🙂

  3. I know this is a dumb question, but where do I get it? I went to the link below, but it still looks to be the build dated 5-08http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/entitlement/index.cfm?e=labs#flashplayer9Or is it the same file name, but refreshed bits?

    As has been asked in this older entry(http://weblogs.macromedia.com/emmy/archives/2005/12/why_isnt_there.cfm) . When will Adobe/Macromedia make a Linux port of Flash Player let alone a Shockwave Player ?I have used flash for many years now and have become a Linux ONLY user (I only use Windows for work software). It is becoming more and more annoying to deal with sites that exclude us by virtue of requiring Flash 8+ to view them.What are we Non Windows and Non Mac users to do (besides ignore those sites and tell them that they should only use Flash 7 because Adobe/Macromedia refuses to support Flash 8+ on Linux) ?

    Flash player 9 for mac PPC OSX 10.4 repeatedly fails to install, claiming that I do not have administrative privileges.Message above claims to have fixed bug for OSX 10.3.What about OSX 10.4?And, where can I get a copy of any such bug patch?
