    Default Where can one get up-to-date information on PepperFlash

    I am extremely grateful that Chrome has taken on Linux flash player development. The release of a 64bit version is particularly appreciated. However, I must admit I am confused as to how the project is being managed:

    1. Unless I am mistaken, there don't appear to be any official release notes, outside of a page on support.google.com that has a foot note that lists some issues linux users might experience [unfortunately I am a new forum member and I was not allowed to post the url, but you can find it by googling "Adobe Flash Player is directly integrated with Google Chrome and enabled by default."]

    2. While the pepper flash player version number is at the same level as the Mac/Windows plugins, the supported feature sets are not the same. For example, 11.3 on Mac/Windows now supports multithreaded & hardware accelerated video decoding. According to the URL I mentioned above, multithreaded decoding is not supported, and from what I can figure out empirically GPU accelerated decoding is not yet possible (though postings about Google VAVDA seem to imply that is is available).

    3. It is not clear where questions regarding PepperFlash behavior/performance should be posted. I am assuming that it would be on the Chrome plugins forum, however, this information should be published along with the release notes.

    Developers that rely on the flash player on Linux are going to need more detail about pepperflash's trajectory for their project planning.

    If I am mistaken and someone out there knows where there is a central repository of up-to-date information on PepperFlash is, please let me know!
