    But don't get too excited folks it's still PPC only :eek:

    Yep Adobe really has their finger on the financial post on this one. I'm sure when CS3 is ready so will the free Flashplayer be as well.

    This is just weird to me. Intel Macs are shipping with an Intel build of Flash Player that Adobe provided to Apple. It's fine to say it's beta and all, but at least for me it works perfectly. Seeing how they came up with that so quickly, is it really that difficult to release an Intel version of Flash Player 9? Even if they release it and call it a beta, that would be fine.

    Further, their stated intent was to release FlashPlayer 8.5 as a universal binary...

    So many if's, but's and maybe's in that statement I don't think I'd be too confident in the timing or the usefulness of yet another beta.

    Didn't they already release a beta? Now they're releasing another?

    They had an Intel version 8 beta and a PowerPC version 8.5 beta, which was renamed version 9. What I read suggested that the Intel version 9 should be available within a month or two.
