Flash Player 10.1 and AIR 2 first public betas

We just released the first public betas for the two client runtimes: Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR 2. You can grab them from here and here.

The cool thing about this release is that there are versions available for all three operating systems Win, Mac OS, and Linux (openSUSE, Fedora, and Ubuntu) right from the beginning.
