Also, Adobe's just let loose Flash Player 10.3 beta for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, featuring a few new talents ready for developers to take advantage.
First up we've got 'Acoustic Echo Cancellation,' which aims to aid voice conferencing by implementing noise suppression, voice activity detection, automatic gain control for volume level compensation, and of course, acoustic echo cancellation. Adobe's pushing its technology for use in group chat, in-game voice chat, and VoIP solutions based on Flash.
Adobe has also integrated Flash's privacy controls with that of the browser, making the choice of whether to permit local storage of Flash content a lot easier and more obvious for the end user. Currently Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 8+ are supported, with Safari and Chrome on the list for future releases.
Adobe's also incorporated a native control panel, which should make it a lot easier to control Flash Player settings for Windows and Mac users, who can now find it in either the Control Panel or System Preferences. Mac users also get a bit of auto-update love from Adobe, joining Windows with update notifications, keeping Flash Player updated and secured from vulnerabilities.
