Adobe Flash Player 10 Now Ready
As of Wednesday Adobe has finally made its Flash Player version 10 available for download. The unusual part is that Adobe released its Windows, Mac, and Linux versions simultaneously. Linux users would normally have to be more patient.
The Flash Player has not undergone many changes since the last announcement of its release candidate. Linux users can download the software off the Adobe webpage. Along with a .deb package for Ubuntu Hardy Heron there is also an .rpm package and a tar.gz archive.
Users should deinstall the previous version first, based on prior experience. The new Flash Player will possibly soon also be installable via the distributions' package manager.

this Linux release.
