Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 will include Stage 3D, which is a new architecture for hardware accelerated graphics rendering. It enables content animation along with 60 frames per second rendering. Additionally, according to Adobe, these new software will support HD video, native 64-bit optimizations, and HD video conferencing. The Flash Player 11 and AIR 3 will also allow game publishers to deliver games to anyone with a PC, tablet, smartphone, or a connected TV.

 

As part of its features, the Flash Player 11 delivers full native 64-bit support for 64-bit browsers on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows. Native extensions in AIR 3 allow developers to use existing native code libraries and deep native hardware and OS capabilities, such as sensors (gyroscopes, magnetometers, light sensors, etc.), multiple screens, native in-app payments, haptic/vibration control, device status, and Near Field Communications (NFC). It will also help developers package their apps with AIR 3 as a captive runtime for one-click installs on Android, Windows, and Mac OS (in addition to iOS) without any additional runtime download.
