Shockwave 11 for Intel Mac Released

The main Adobe link for Shockwave 11 still directs Mac Intel users to a page explaining how to set your browser to Rosetta mode and download Shockwave 10. But the page at contains a link to the real Shockwave 11 for Intel Macs.

    Have you noticed how much slower the mactel shockwave pugin is?

    I installed it on mac and on windows xp running in vmware. Took this screenshot:

    Keep in mind both shockwaves are running at the same time on my mac….right is safari (shockwave 11), left is ie running in vmware (shockwave 11). It feels like the mactel plugin is still running in rosetta. Time based animation.

    Could Adobe have made it much more difficult? If you download the “Slim” installer, instead of downloading a slim app that installs all components via the Internet it literally is a slimmed down version of the Shockwave player with only about 20% of the Xtras. To get “all”the Xtras you have to go to the “More players” section and manually download the Full installer… which, as others have pointed out, lacks Havok and runs slower than molasses.

    How many years did it take to get to Universal Binary and it’s still feels like a poorly written afterthought?!

    Something smells rotten in Denmark.
