Flash Player is a cross-platform, browser-based application runtime that provides uncompromised viewing of expressive applications, content, and videos across browsers and operating systems.
Adobe Flash 11.5 is ready for download and installation. After Firefox and Google Chrome, Adobe has finally decided that their Flash development will move to a rapid beta release cycle using the background update feature that was introduced in Flash Player 11.4. So the user won’t be bugged every time a new update is ready for download and installation. The latest version of Flash Player becomes 11.5.500.80.
One thing to note here is that ActiveX Flash Player in this release is not compatible with Windows 8. It is already integrated as a part of Windows 8. Some features of Flash Player 11.5 include the following:
- Packaging multiple libraries in an ANE (iOS)
- Debug stack trace in release builds of Flash Player
- Statically link DRM (Desktop only)
- Invoke Event enhancement (for openurl)
- Multiple SWF support (iOS)
