Earlier today, Adobe released a pre-release version of its new software tool called “Wallaby” which converts Flash content to HTML5 using simple drag and drop technique. Now, another official announcement brings the release of Flash Player 10.3 beta which brings a handful of new features. These include enhanced privacy and settings controls which are neatly integrated into the system and browser preferences in Mac OX. There is also an updated system to notify users if they are running the latest version or not.
There are also some general improvements such as video measurement analytics and acoustic echo cancellation for “improved audio quality in collaborative environments”.
– Integration with browser privacy controls for managing local storage — Users now have a simpler way to clear local storage from the browser settings interface – similar to how users clear their browser cookies today. Flash Player 10.3 integrates control of local storage with the browser’s privacy settings in Mozilla Firefox 4, Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 and higher, and future releases of Apple Safari and Google Chrome.
– Native Control Panel — Flash Player 10.3 provides users with streamlined controls for managing their Flash Player privacy, security and storage settings. Windows, Mac, and Linux users can access the Flash Player Settings Manager directly from the Control Panels or System Preferences on their computers.
