Adobe announced that its Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 will be available for download tonight starting at 9PM Pacific Time or midnight for folks on the East Coast. These latest updates were detailed back in September and are expected to bring significant improvements such as faster rendering speeds and support for 3D gaming on a variety of platforms, including mobile devices as well as connected TVs.
The updates are expected to bring hardware-accelerate 2D and 3D graphics rendering through Stage 3D. Adobe promises up to 1,000 times faster rendering performance in comparison to Flash Player 10 and AIR 2, which means up to 60FPS rendering and console quality games.
Additionally, LG and TiVo have been announced as the latest partners to bring Flash-based apps to its connected TVs via AIR, while Samsung SmartTVs already support Flash. AIR 3 will also allow developers to convert code to native apps for other platforms, including Android, BlackBerry Tablet OS, and iOS.
The announcement took place during the company’s MAX conference today, where it also revealed six new tablet-optimized apps, including Photoshop Touch, which will be heading to Android tablets first starting next month. For more details on the downloads, you can visit Adobe’s blog post.
