    2/12/2013 - Flash Player 11.6 Release Announcement

    chris.campbell Adobe Employee

      Today we're pleased to announce that the next version of Flash Player, 11.6, is available for immediate download.  This update includes the following new features:


      • Full Screen Permission Dialog UI Improvement

      Changed the location of the permission dialog to the middle of the screen. Also improved the user experience when going into full screen mode by adding the "Cancel" button.

      • Graphics Data Query

      Developers can read the structure of the display object and vector data at runtime. Game developers can use this feature to create complex Sprite Sheets, or exporters for any file format (e.g. SVG) at runtime.

      • Bug fixes

      Numerous bug fixes for all browsers and platforms!


      For complete information please see our release notes.


      Current Flash Player desktop users that have enrolled in either the "Allow Adobe to install updates (recommended)" or "Notify me to install updates" update options will receive an update notification dialog within 7 days from today (please note that Windows users will need to restart their system to receive the notification dialog.)
