Great announcements from Adobe today: Flash Player 10.3 goes public with Android 3.1 support, the Molehill project get's it's final name and several new features in Flash Player 11 is revealed.
Adobe announced today that Flash Player 10.3 is now available for download. This version does not add major new features, but is rather what we'd call a "maintenance release". The new features are Media measurement, Acoustic echo cancellation, Enhanced privacy protection and some Security enhancements. This new release is also available for Android 3.1 devices even though most phones and tablets are still sold with Android 2.3 so the release should be forward compatible as well. If you are one of the lucky ones with a 3.x system (such as Motorola XOOM), this release should provide nice significant speedup as well.
Flash Player 11 details
Thibault also lists some "small" additions as well that certainly are major to some developers / designers such as lifting the limit on bitmap sizes in the Flash Player. Finally!
