Macromedia adds SOAP to Linux Flash Player

Macromedia has added support for Web services protocol SOAP to its Flash Player for Linux.

The company said the latest Flash Player, released Thursday, offers increased performance and security. Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), a Web services protocol that allows independent applications to exchange messages in real time, helps companies integrate their applications and improve overall efficiency.

Flash Player 7 for Linux is available for download from Macromedia and will be included in Linux distributions from major providers such a Novell, Red Hat, Sun Microsystems and Turbolinux. Other enhancements in version 7 include performance tweaks that allow Flash applications to load significantly faster and support for uniform Web development using cascading style sheets.
