Adobe Closes Flash Player 64-bit for Linux Labs Program
By on June 12th, 2010

Close on the heels of releasing Flash Player 10.1, Adobe announced the closure of the Labs program of Flash Player 64-bit for Linux. Adobe also set the Flash 64-bit for Linux forums on read-only mode,   effectively quelling any and all means of discussion.

Adobe mentions in their announcement:

We have temporarily closed the Labs program of Flash Player 10 for 64-bit Linux, as we are making significant architectural changes to the 64-bit Linux Flash Player and additional security enhancements. [...] We intend to provide more regular update information on our progress as we continue our work on 64-bit versions of Flash Player. Thank you for your continued help and support.

which effectively translates to something like, “hey, we screwed up, we don’t know what we’re doing, but yeah, we’re going to do something”. Not exactly a confidence booster, eh ?
