Ubuntu has upgraded its flashplugin-nonfree package in its Multiverse repository to Adobe Flash 10.
Flash 10 is a significant release for the Linux community, which suffers heavily from not being able to view Flash files to having to deal with tremendously annoying bugs. The Ubuntu team thought they would do something about that, and upgrade to the (even though beta) 10th release of Adobe Flash.
Wow. A great time has passed, and a significant move in Linux Flash support has come and gone. Flash 10 is out, and I can't believe I have heard nothing about it--that is, until I received a note from intrepid-changes that, Flash 10 final got into Intrepid! I quickly went over to the download page of Adobe, and sure enough, they have replaced Flash 9, and has its own official DEBs for Ubuntu! Well this fixes the above mentioned bug, and, wow, just wow, this is so great!
