Flash 9 Linux Beta Is Live

I haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but a publicly available beta of Flash 9 for Linux is now available. Kudos to the Adobe Linux Flash team for the hard work. From the linked blog post:
While we are still working out exactly how to distribute the final Player version to be as easy as possible for the typical end user, this beta includes 2 gzip'd tarball packages: one is for the Mozilla plugin and the other is for a GTK-based Standalone Flash Player. Either will need to be downloaded manually via the Adobe Labs website and unpacked. The standalone Player (gflashplayer) can be run in place (after you set its executable permission). The plugin is dropped into your local plugin directory (for a local user) or the system-wide plugin directory.
This release has been anticipated for a while now. Before you install it I'd recommend reading the Beta Release Notes. That being said, go get it! Quality bug reports are key, so if you run across something make sure to report it.

    Thanks for watching this so closely, Jeremy. I've snagged it and installed as root on my Kubuntu Edgy Eft. We'll see how it works out.
