Adobe has finally made the announcement a lot of Linux users have been waiting for, a 64-bit version of the Adobe Flash Player is again available. Not only that, it's a significant improvement over previous releases.
This should appease most Linux users and it's clear that Adobe is committed to creating a native 64-bit plugin. A stable version should be coming soon now.
Unfortunately, although part of the announcement was support for hardware acceleration in Internet Explorer 9, there is still no support whatsoever for GPU acceleration on Linux.
