Copy:

(Matej - feel free to tweak this) 

Beta page: "Also test the [Beta version of Flash]"
Aurora page: "Test the [Beta version of Flash]"

[link]

WebDev Direction: 
Please add a text link to this Adobe page under the main download button. 

http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer11-4.html

Kind of like we have the Android line of text under the button on /new. But without the button treatment. We just need a single line of text. That color and size works well. Use your design judgement. We don't want to distract from the main CTA - downloading Beta/Aurora. 

Add to: 
1. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/beta/
2. http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/aurora/

Timing: Mike - would be great to have this by the end of this week, by Aug 24th.

I'm not sure if right now is the best time for doing this, maybe we should do that in a week or so. Adobe just released 11.4 as final today, and I guess there will be 11.5 in beta really soon, at which time we'd need to update this anyhow.
Sal has told me that users will automatically be updated and will get the 11.5 betas when they are made publicly available, so I don't think we need to wait for this.

Copy looks good to me, thanks.
Sorry, one small change, "beta" shouldn't be capitalized:

Beta page: "Also test the [beta version of Flash]"
Aurora page: "Test the [beta version of Flash]"

The entry site for FP beta redirects to FP release now; I'll hand this back when I can get Adobe to provide an updated entry link :-(

I don't think this should block us. Let's use http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer11-5.html

Is this ready to go, or are there more changes pending (I seem to recall a mention of more changes in IRC).
As noted in the other bug, the permalink is http://www.adobe.com/go/flashplayerbeta

Other than that *I* think this should be ready to go.
Yes -- this is ready to go! Let's review on staging before pushing live.
Done in trunk in r110371.

You can preview this here:
https://www-dev.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/beta/
https://www-dev.allizom.org/en-US/firefox/aurora/

Alignment is a bit tricky, as the Systems... text is centered under the button (I did the same for this new line). I had also tried it in the same font as that System text, but it was pretty tiny. Feedback is welcome.
OS: Mac OS X → All
Hardware: x86 → All
Whiteboard: u=user c=downloads p=1 → u=user c=downloads p=1 r=110371 b=trunk
Let's ship it! Can someone advise on when this will go live?
Committed revision 111357.

Should be live shortly.
