Flash Player for Solaris now availalbe

Flash Player is now available on for the Solaris x86 and SPARC platforms. This update also addresses the issues in Security Bulletin APSB07-20 for Solaris. The one big known issue listed in the release notes is that the full screen hardware scaling feature is not supported on SPARC platforms at this time.

Thanks to everyone who tested and provided feedback on the Adobe Labs beta!
