Adobe Flash Finally Free

Sick of finicky Macromedia Flash compatability for your Linux distribution? I know I've spent a significant amount of time installing the third-party, open-source plugins to Firefox in order to get Flash support in my browser. But now, that doesn't seem necessary anymore. Adobe released the Flash Player Scripting Engine last month, and in conjunction with the Mozilla Tamarin project, should result in an open-source, official Flash plug-in for Firefox.

Also, Acrobat Reader 8 is now available.
