Software-update: Adobe Flash Player & AIR

Adobe Flash Player logo (60 pix)Adobe heeft versie 13.0 uitgebracht van Flash Player en de Integrated Runtime. Met Adobe Flash Player is het mogelijk om Flash-content, voornamelijk swf-bestanden, op de computer af te spelen. Onder meer populaire videosites als YouTube en Google Video bieden hun bezoekers de mogelijkheid om video's met de stand-alone-Flash Player af te spelen. Adobe AIR biedt een crossplatform-omgeving voor het ontwikkelen en afspelen van zogeheten Rich Internet Applications. De release notes voor deze uitgave zijn hieronder te vinden.

New Features
  • Enhanced Supplementary Character Support for TextField
    Characters from the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP) with Unicode code points between U+10000 and U+10FFFF now work correctly in TextField controls. This change greatly enlarges the code point range we support, and now includes characters like emoticons and complex CCJK characters.
  • New Stage3D Texture Wrapping Modes
    Developers can currently set the wrapping mode of a texture to either clamp or repeat. Using the repeat option will repeat the texture on both the U and V axis. However, in some use cases, you may only want to repeat the texture on either the u or v axis.
    This is now possible with the introduction of two new parameters:
  • Stage3D Anti-Aliasing for Texture Rendering
    Anti-Aliasing is a useful for improving perceived image quality. Hardware based Multisampling Anti-Aliasing (MSAA) is now available on all desktop platforms. To enable MSAA, set the level from 0 to 4 using the antiAlias property of the Context3D.setRenderToTexture() method.
    • 0 = 1 subsample, no antialiasing
    • 1 = 2 subsamples, minimum quality antialiasing
    • 2 = 4 subsamples, medium quality antialiasing
    • 3 = 8 subsamples, high quality antialiasing
    • 4 = 16 subsamples, maximum quality antialiasing
  • GamePreview with Adobe AIR
    Adobe AIR’s new Game Preview feature (for Android platforms only) lets users try your game and experience it first hand without installing a separate application. This feature is not restricted to games built using AIR but is available to all developers, irrespective of the technology that you may use to build your application. The fact that the AIR runtime is installed on more than 50 million devices, greatly multiplies the chances of your game being previewed and subsequently installed by game enthusiasts. Please see Game Preview With Adobe AIR for more details.
  • Improved Packaging Engine - iOS - BETA
    The new packaging engine is now more stable and works fine with a large number of apps. We have now added support for Action Script debugging and Advanced Telemetry support. To enable this feature, please use "-useLegacyAOT no" in the ADT command, before the signing options. As of now, this feature is not available within Flash Pro but it can still be used with Flash builder by adding the parameter -useLegacyAOT under the "Customize launch" option.
    Here is an example ADT command for compiling an applications using “-useLegacyAOT no":
    adt -package -target ( ipa-test | ipa-debug | ipa-app-store | ipa-ad-hoc) -useLegacyAOT no -provisioning-profile -keystore -storetype pkcs12 -storepass xxxx HelloWorld.ipa Helloworld-app.xml HelloWorld.swf
  • Relocated Full Screen Video Warning to Top of Screen
    We've made a small tweak to the "Press Esc to exit full screen mode" warning that is displayed for full screen video. We've received feedback from developers and users that the dialog obscures content. We wanted to make a change that both satisfies security concerns and customer viewing enjoyment. To reduce the impact of the dialog on the on-screen content, we've moved the dialog to the top of the screen.

Het meest irritante aan Flash is nog steeds dat er aparte versies zijn voor de ActiveX plugin (Internet Explorer en gerelateerde applicaties, zoals de mail-viewer in Outlook), en de plugin voor andere browsers (Firefox etc).

De auto-update feature neemt altijd maar 1 van beide mee, dus je blijft altijd handwerk houden :( Weet iemand daar een oplossing voor?
Dat is inderdaad een probleem. Zelf maak ik altijd gebruik van de Distributions pagina. Dan download je het hele installatiebestand, zorgt dat IE of FF niet aan staat en installeerd Flash in n keer op een PC. Zonder dat je moet opletten dat je per ongeluk doorklikt en extra software installeerd. Is daarom wel fijn dat W8 dat (semi-) automatisch installeerd. Misschien dat FF hier ook eens wat aan zou kunnen doen, want meen dat je bij Chrome (gebruik het zelf niet) niet meer zelf hoeft te updaten.
"Dan download je het hele installatiebestand, zorgt dat IE of FF niet aan staat en installeerd Flash in n keer op een PC. "

Als je op doelt, ik zie daar geen installer staan waar alles in zit, IE en FF+rest hebben aparte installers.
Klopt helemaal.
W8 installeert het automatisch met Win Update. Handig, maar moet je de computer opnieuw opstarten.
Voor FF (/plug-in based browsers) en voor IE voor <W8 kun je via die link bestanden downloaden waardoor je geen online installer download (dat is wat ik met hele installatiebestand bedoelde). Daarnaast ben je af van de side-install van crapware, die je wel krijgt met de online-install via
Is inderdaad geen 100% oplossing voor Raven's probleem, maar het verlicht de taak wel via de full-install bestanden.
Deze opmerking zal jou waarschijnlijk niet helpen maar dat vind ik dus misschien wel het grootste voordeel van Linux.
Daar worden alle applicaties en systeembestanden automatisch bijgewerkt door de packagemanager als je dat wenst.
Nooit meer al die programma's langs om te checken of je up to date bent.
Flash & AIR gaat met het benummeren van de versies achter Chrome en Firefox na, dus als je denkt, net als mij: Flash versie 12 is toch pas uitgekomen en AIR zat toch op versie 4? Dit klopt:
Today we are introducing a new numbering scheme for our product versions. Adopting the pattern set by Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, we will update the major version number with each subsequent release. In other words, beginning with this release, Flash Player will become Flash Player 12. With each new major release, roughly every 3 months, that number will increase by one.

This change will also apply to the AIR Runtime and AIR SDK. This release will be numbered AIR 4 and AIR SDK 4; however, with our "King" (Q2 2014) release, the version number will be synchronized with the Flash Player version at 13.
Dit is sinds versie 12 doorgevoerd.

Ik vind het toch bij flash vooral makkelijk dat ze dit doen, er komen zo vaak updates voor die plugins.
Zo zie je makkelijker of de nieuwste versie er op staat, al gaan de cijfertjes zo wel heel snel.
Nog steeds half zo snel als Chrome of Firefox, die hebben iedere 1,5 maand een update, ipv iedere 3.
Als je Windows 8(.1) gebruikt met alleen Internet Explorer of i.c.m. Google Chrome hoef je deze niet te installeren / upgraden.

Windows heeft ook een update gekregen via Windows Update.
Jaj uit de beta.
Adobe Flash Player versie zorgt op veel Mac OS X systemen voor plugin-errors.

Uninstall en reinstall helpt niet. Uiteindelijk toch maar teruggegaan naar Adobe Flash Player versie via de Amerikaanse site van Adobe (archief). Op de Nederlandse site staat deze versie niet aangegeven op de archiefpagina.
