Good news, Flash Player 10.2 is now live and available for download. Additionally the debug versions of the player are also available for development purposes.

So what’s new then? Probably the biggest feature is Stage Video, which delivers high performance video playback. Stage Video should alleviate much of the criticism levelled at Flash in the past concerning video performance, CPU usage and power consumption.

Another great new feature is the dual-monitor support for video playback. You can now watch a video in full-screen on one monitor and continue to work in the other. On previous version of the player, full-screen video switched off as soon as the user started working in the second screen. This was somewhat annoying so it’s great to see it finally fixed.
