Flash 6.0r79 Player Released
Today Macromedia released a unified Flash 6.0r79 update today for Mac/OS X, Win, and Linux. The release notes describe or link to information on security and bug fixes along with performance enhancements to live video/audio streams served via Macromedia's Flash Communication Server.
Flash MX authors should also download and install the Flash 6 Player Update (Mac/Win) as the security and bug fixes should be of use in network-aware stand-alone projects as well as those targeted for the web.
I'm hoping that these enhancements allow Mac OS X-based users longer FlashCom video connection times; my experience so far with the previous release has PC-based clients running all day with OS X clients freezing and dropping connections after only a few minutes. Pressing demands have prevented me from exploring this further—I'd appreciate any insight or shared experiences any of you would like to offer.Posted by Lewis Francis at March 3, 2003 10:14 PM
