When will Adobe get off their ass and give us 64-bit Flash?

You know we’ll never be able to have 64-bit browsers until Flash goes 64-bit, so Adobe needs to get on the ball and stop holding us all back. Everyone is finally ditching IE6, so it’s time to get Flash updated too. Although just removing Flash altogether and converting everything to HTML 5 would be fine with me too. Seems Adobe has some work to do before their relevance begins to wane just like Microsoft’s.

    What’s Adobe’s 64-bit Flash plan?

    The issue that comes to mind when going from 32-bit to 64-bit–the actual size of memory addresses–was addressed by our engineers some time ago. The main issue has been libraries. Flash Player relies on many code libraries for functionality like audio and video playback or hardware acceleration. If a library that Flash Player depends on isn’t available in 64-bit, we need to rewrite code for new libraries.
