    4/2/2013 - Flash Player 11.7.700.170 Beta

      Flash Player Beta Channel Update

      Flash Player 11.7 builds are now available.  You can download Flash Player here: http://www.adobe.com/go/flashplayerbeta.



      Important Area for Testing Focus:  New Background Update Patch Mechanism

      Flash Player 11.7 beta includes a test of our new patch update mechanism for ActiveX and NPAPI Plug-In versions of Flash Player.  This mechanism reduces the download size of a typical Flash Player update by about 75%.


      Patches will only be downloaded and applied to systems running the latest current version of Flash Player (currently 11.7.700.141).  Systems running any other version of Flash Player (i.e. 11.7.700.128) will continue to receive the full install.  Like the standard Background Update mechanism, patch installers include multiple cryptographic checks to validate the authenticity and integrity of the patch prior to application..


      This change should be transparent; however, if you do experience installation problems, please let us know.
