For Windows and MacOS there is already 9th version released.
And for linux we have only 7th. It can't display many flash movies
properly and I experience many problems visiting some sites. When
the new version for linux will be available?
Ask in the forum for flash player .. where you'll be told
that its under
development and you'll just have to wait. There are some
blogs that can give you some hints about where they are up
to. I think
there should be a Linux version soon .. but not a 64-bit
Linux or 64-Windows
version for some time after that.
