Can someone from Adobe PLEASE reply to any of the posts regarding the 11.3 update using an 'Internal Update Server'. I can find a number of posts in various forums about this and no one from from Adobe has responded.
It has been at least a couple of weeks since 11.3 was released and the 'version.xml' and associated files have yet to be updated.
What is the point of having an 'Internal Update Server' if it never distributes updates, or updates that are weeks/months old?
You may have to wait for a few days; Adobe is closed for the week.
Still waiting for an answer or even just a quick acknowledgement on this. The repository is still out of date. Is it really too much to ask?
I'm forwarding this to our installer folks that are responsible for this area. I'll let you know what they have to say.
Many thanks Chris, I'm eagerly awaiting your reply.
Could you give this a try again today? We've updated to 11.3.300.265 and I'm hoping that our xml will be in sync.

Looks like its updated!
Many thanks Chris, I really appreciate your help!
With newer updates, will Adobe's servers auto update or is it something we are going to have to request everytime?
Flash Player 11.4 is out since Tuesday 6 PM but about 1 and a half days later today at 5 AM the schedule downloaded a version.xml file that is saying <ActiveX major="11" minor="3" buildMajor="300" buildMinor="271" />
Can someone from Adobe tell if there is any reason for making available the latest version at fpdownload2.macromedia.com later than at get.adobe.com?
And if there is a reason for this, what time difference should be expected between the official release date and the time when it becomes available at fpdownload2.macromedia.com?
Please download the latest version of the Flash Player administration guide: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flashplayer/articles/flash_player_admin_guide.html
The section about pushing Flash Player updates to internal networks has been overhauled and should give you the info that you need.
After completing the license form, I've received the new common URL from where I could download the new version.
I can verify the new version (cab file) is available for scheduled downloading and it can be used for an internal update solution.
Hopefully this URL won't change when the next version arrives...
Now the version.xml file is pointing to the below but the latest release is 11.8.800.94
<version><ActiveX major="11" minor="7" buildMajor="700" buildMinor="224"/>
<Plugin major="11" minor="7" buildMajor="700" buildMinor="224"/>
<MacPlugin major="11" minor="7" buildMajor="700" buildMinor="225"/>
Why adobe is not keeping up-to-date with the latest version ?? Is there any other server or method to get the latest version ??
