Flash9 for Linux DOES go fullscreen…

…ok, well the standalone player anyway. I’d got the impression from the release notes that the new Flash beta simply couldn’t do fullscreen on Linux, but I was reading it wrong. The browser plugin can’t, but the standalone goes fullscreen just fine, shouldn’t be hard to get this working for the final release…sweet.

Hadn’t had time to look at it before, but the standalone player even includes a few extras I don’t remember from widows, a URL entry field and a Bookmarks menu…

Must say it’s a lot nicer than I had expected, it even has a working ‘create projector’ option to make standalone binaries, although they’re not all that svelt at around 6mb for the base package…
