According to a bulletin from Adobe Labs, Adobe Systems has decided to halt the development of the Labs program of Flash Player 10 software for 64-bit flavors of Linux. Adobe insists this is only temporary, as well as necessary in order to making significant architectural changes and beef up security.

"We are fully committed to bringing native 64-bit Flash Player for the desktop by providing native support for Windows, Macintosh, and Linux 64-bit platforms in an upcoming major release of Flash Player," Adobe added. "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."

According to InfoWorld, an Adobe representative expressed the same sentiment , saying that the company is not killing development, and instead working to improve the underlying code for this version of the runtime.
