My girlfriend's netbook (Atom N280, with Broadcom Crystal HD video decoder) used to play flash video with very choppy frame rates, now with Flash 11 RC1 it is almost completely smooth, and only 30% CPU. I hope it gets even better for final & it plays perfectly.

how soon are we probably going to see the final release of this?

I'd guess within a week, two at most. The beta program wasn't too long ago. We'll see though.

Let this be true because I am hoping the flu 64 bit might help out Mac.

Key benefits of the Flash Player 11 desktop release candidate include:

•Stage 3D Accelerated Graphics Rendering - Deliver cutting edge 2D and 3D experiences on the desktop.
•Native 64-bit support - Support for 64-bit operating systems and browsers on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows.
•G.711 audio compression for telephony - Integrate real-time voice and telephony capabilities into business apps and integrate with existing phone systems using the G.711 codec.
•H.264/AVC SW Encoding - Create apps that encode higher quality video locally using the efficient H.264 video standard.
•Socket Progress Events - Improve management of data transfer, track progress, and provide responsive feedback in apps send large amounts of data.
•JPEG-XR support - Take advantage of support for the advanced JPEG-XR image compression format to deliver higher quality images with less bandwidth, and leverage lossy and lossless compression with alpha channel transparency.

What about hardware acceleration in OSX Lion?

Yes please. Flash runs like a dog on OS X. Thank god for addons like "Click for Flash" otherwise simple web browsing would result in a battery life of 2 hours or less on my MBP.

Hahaha, this just remembers that a Friend just contacted me 2 hours ago, saying how his cousin's MB Pro (with i7 2.3 QCore) was making the computer melt while browsing YouTube.... Then I suggested him to switch over to HTML5, XD.

Anyways, I still support Flash more than HTML 5 for video web based, because videos tend to play smoother and with less lag,(Yeah... I know... it still a work in progress...)and I still hope that flash has more years to come either in it's current stage or an evolved form.
