Adobe Flash Player 10.2 beta was released today with preliminary support for Stage Video which will increase the performance of video content across all platforms. It also has enhanced text rendering, and a native custom mouse cursors API and support for full screen playback with multiple monitors.

    1. I tried in my system with core2duo processor, 2gb ram….and i found some improvements. It dosn’t work for everytime it depends on the your machine performance.

  1. i get an error after the third step

    “cp: cannot create regular file ‘usr/lib/flashplugin-installer/’: is a directory”

    thoughts?
