Adobe has just released version 10 of the free flash player. Adobe Flash Player version has unprecedented creative control with expressive new features and visual performance improvements. The software is a cross-platform browser plug-in that delivers breakthrough web experiences and is installed on more than 98% of Internet-connected desktops.

Top features which are new than the older version are 3D effects, real-time effects for cinematic experiences, flexible text layout, enhanced sound APIs, hardware processing power, new typed array class for better performance, enhanced file uploads and download APIs. The new Pixel Bender just-in- time (JIT) compiler can also process sound or mathematical functions, asynchronously in a separate thread.

But, most important, Flash Player 10, includes a fix for the "clickjacking vulnerability", the process that gives an attacker the ability to trick a user into clicking on something only barely or momentarily noticeable. The Flash Player 10 update also helps prevent a clickjacking attack on a user's Webcam and microphone. Clickjacking was a vulnerabillity in flash player version as well as vulnerabilities in browsers such as Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox, and Safari.

Newer version has many improved features and fixes for previous flaws and hence everybody should upgrade to version 10.

Have a look at the Flash Player in action.
