Here is a great presentation by Justin Everett-Church, the Flash Player Product Manager; covering all the new features of Flash Player 10. It was originally a presentation given at the 360Flex conference. It covers in detail topics like 3D, the new drawing API’s, Pixel Bender, Text and a lot more. Its treasure trove of information on the latest and greatest Flash Player, I hope you enjot it.

Flash Player Archive

I have had many people ask me for older Flash players to test against. It seems that its not easy to find the archive on the Adobe we page. So here it is:

Flash Player archives

You will find Flash players from the current player all the way back to Flash Player 2.

Have fun testing.
