Detection kit: SWFFix 0.2 public alpha now available

The SWFFix Dev blog announced on Wednesday the public alpha of a new open source detection kit. The best detection minds are working together to solve your Flash Player embedding and detection issues — the project was started by Geoff Stearns (of SWFObject), Bobby Van der Sluis (of UFO) and Michael Williams from the Flash Player team (Adobe detection kit and Express Install).

Finally…SWF and FLV File Format Spec for v9 is available

The v9 file format specification went out with tonight’s server push. It’s been a long wait, and I appreciate everyone’s patience. I promise to push for a faster turnaround for the next update so we don’t have such a long delay again.

Flash Player 9 for Solaris now available!

Flash Player 9 (9.0.47) for Solaris (x86 and sparc) is now available for download at

Flash Player on Solaris supports Solaris 10. The functionality is equivalent to the original Linux release in January, so keep in mind this means no full-screen mode support. The only new known issue is that the player on Solaris does not support any camera or sound drivers at this time. Release Notes

Thanks to everyone who tested the beta on Adobe Labs!
