Adobe® Flash® Player “Square” is a preview release that enables native 64-bit support on Linux, Mac OS, and Windows operating systems, as well as enhanced support for Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 beta.

“There are a number of significant changes that are required to move from 32-bit to 64-bit architecture. It?s not just a simple recompile. For example, Flash Player relies on many code libraries for functionality like audio and video playback or hardware acceleration. If a library that Flash Player depends isn?t available for 64-bit, we need to rewrite code for new libraries. Flash Player is used to create powerful, beautiful applications and content, but it can also play back a wide array of media, ranging from video clips from Flash Player 6 to the latest and greatest H.264 video streaming live with hardware acceleration. To do so natively in 64-bit, all of the many library dependencies must be available or rewritten for 64-bit.” source  zdnet
