Flash Player (Win) and (Mac)

Between Incubator and the 10.3 release, we FORGOT to post our first release update to the Runtime Releases blog. Sorry for the confusion, and the release notes will be updated this week.

Flash Player (Windows) and (Mac) addresses critical bugs, primarily related to video hardware acceleration:

* Windows users with systems using NVidia Optimus technology which has two GPUs that switch dynamically depending on the graphics operation would occasionally see a black screen when trying to view video in fullscreen (2745863). (My error: this is still a known issue that we are working on with NVidia)

* On Windows systems, AMD/ATI GPUs would not engage hardware decoding while watching H.264 video, causing a decrease in performance (2806826).

* Browser tab operations, such as switching between tabs playing video or closing many tabs displaying video, may have caused rendering problems or even a crash (2801091).

* Attempts to upload multiple files from an Apple Macintosh computer would fail due to a disk write error.     However, on Mac OS 10.4 and 10.5 systems, users may continue to find a limit on the amount of data they can upload at one time (2812090).
