Adobe just released the beta version 10 of Flash Player, codename Astro!
You can get it over at the labs, and check out it's cool demos!
The biggest thing they also released as a beta was Pixel Blender, formerly Hydra, the new language that will enable us to write filters using the GPU.
Also they introduced a new parameter that enables us to take advantage of the GPU capabilities of the the user, this is truly a great day!
I can't wait to start playing with both Pixel Blender and the new native 3d features!!!
