Adobe Flash 9 for Solaris

Great news from Adobe, no sadly not the news that we finally have an upto date Acroread for Solaris x86, but that for Solaris on x86 and SPARC the beta version of Flash 9 is available.  To get this go to the Adobe labs page on flash 9 and scroll down to the getting started area and find the link that says "Download and install Flash Player 9 Update beta".  Note if you click the link in the side box near the top of the page you will be directed to the download page for Flash 7 not the beta of Flash 9.

Thanks to the Adobe and Sun engineers who have been working on this.  Now can we PLEASE get Acroread for Solaris x86 that is current; evince from GNOME is great and I use it a lot, just like I mostly use Preview on MacOS X but when the rare times come that I need to fill in PDF forms I really need a current Acroread.

Another bad report: just now, with the above plugin, I watched a video on YouTube. It seemed to play just fine until about 4/5ths of the way through. Now it appears to be stalled out, as does every other YouTube video I attempt to view. Performance is \*significantly\* better, I must add, but this one I would advise you stay away from until their next release.
