What’s New in Flash Player 10.1?

Flash Player 10.1 is redesigned from the ground up with new performance, stability, and mobile-ready features, and is the first release to bring the full Web across desktops and devices. The new release delivers expressive content to personal computers, smartphones, tablets, smartbooks, and netbooks, and can take advantage of native device capabilities including multitouch, gestures, mobile input models, and accelerometer input.

New hardware acceleration support delivers smooth, high-quality video with minimal overhead to mobile devices and personal computers using audio and H.264 video decoding. Added capabilities such as Smart Rendering, Smart Zooming, Smart Seek, Sleep Mode, and Advanced Out-of-Memory Management help drive efficiency and reliability gains. As a result, the reduced memory and CPU consumption help increase battery life on mobile devices.
