[openFATE 310885] Use flash-player square for x64 instead of 10.1

Title: Use flash-player square for x64 instead of 10.1

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: vincent lejeune (vlj)
Partner organization:

Adobe released some weeks ago a new version preview version of its
flash plugin codenamed "Square" (a preview of the 10.2 plugin version,
that is to be released next year).
Unlike stable 10.1, this plugin has a native 64 bits version. As
experienced by some users, this preview version is more stable that the
latest stable one on 64bits OS in some situation ; on the other hand,
using a native x64 plugins would allow to get rid of every 32bits
package that are installed "just for" flash player, and which waste
disk place.
It would be nice, as OpenSUSE 11.4 will ship in Q1 2011, to have a
"package" that provides flash square (with classic EULA notification)
for 64bits version of opensuse instead of flash 10.1.

I think it won't happen. Just a few days ago adobe released a 32-bit
beta version of flash 10.2 with no 64-bit version available. I think
it's safe to say that version 10.2 will be 32-bit only. In fact there's
a preview 3 the "square" branch which the url flags as version 10.3,
despite the fact that the tarball's name suggests that this preview 3
is still version 10.2.

I am using openSUSE 11.3 now with "square" release. It's much faster,
and ndwrapper doent load CPU for 30-40 %.

more over it's normally just a simple package to make but must be in
non-oss Article about how to install square
And that works better than any other "wrapper" things, even with the
Firefox 4.0 which comes in factory.

I'm reverting my vote. There was recently some security flaw spotted in
flash 10.2/10.3, on every platform. But the 64 bits version of flash
was not the security issue remains.
It seems that flash 64 bits will be truly released with flash 11
version, later this year.

+ Adobe's work on a 64-bit version of Flash is moving at a snail's pace
+ since 2010. Until Flash 64-bit comes out alpha and beta. It will not be
+ approved for inclusion on the DVD download.
+ The question is. Will it be reading by November 2011?
