Adobe Flash Player 9 For Linux Final ReleasedAdobe announced the availability of Adobe Flash Player 9 for Linux, the next-generation client runtime for engaging with Flash content and applications on Linux open source operating systems. Official Press Release available here. A standalone and debugger versions of the player for Linux are also available on this page.
This brings a much greater parity between Mac/Windows/Linux machines in their ability to view Flash content/applications/etc.
With the availability of the free Flex 2.0.1 SDK, Linux users have a complete solution for creating and viewing Flash content on their favorite OS.
For some further technical info on the release version for Linux, and a few additional details, see Emmy Huang's (Flash Player Product Manager) blog entry, and Tinic Uro's (Flash Player Engineering Team) blog entry.
Flash/ActionScript/Flex Job ListingsSome folks might not notice without me pointing it out, but I recently added in some handy job listings links to the bottom right of the home page here underneath the "Local/Global Support Links" I'll probably expand this with a dedicated page that will have longer listings, but currently I've got a Flex based app from DeveloperCircuit that lists Adobe technology related job listings. Seeing the listings are free, if you want to post a job listing, visit DeveloperCircuit and your job listing will get circulated to a series of websites that cater just to the types of developers you are looking for.
In addition I also am pulling in an RSS feed listing of Flash/ActionScript/Flex jobs within a 25 mile radius of Philadelphia via Indeed.com which is a really fantastic quick job search site.
I added these listings for a number of reasons, but also because I had some corruption of our Forum database, which gets a lot of job posting's/listings and I need to restore a backup and do some work to get it functioning again. I'm probably going to replace it with a mailing-list soon to get more bang for the buck.
Stay tuned for more updates to get the ball rolling in 2007!
