Flash Square Includes 64-bit Mac Support

Adobe posted a preview version of the Flash Player, code named “Square,” that adds 64-bit support to Mac OS X on Thursday.

The Square preview offers little extra beyond native 64-bit support, although the Windows version also includes hardware acceleration support for the public beta of Internet Explorer 9.

Adobe’s Square Flash Player preview is available for download at the Adobe Labs Web site. Since this is a preview version of the Flash Player application, it may be especially unstable and shouldn’t be installed on mission critical systems.
