      Flash Player Beta Channel Update

      Flash Player 11.7 is now live in the release channel.  We sincerely thank everyone in the Beta audience for your testing efforts.  The feedback and crash reports we received during this release were incredibly valuable, and helped us identify a number of issues very early in the release cycle.

       

      Notable Fixes and Enhancements

      • 3537052 - HTTP Live Streaming - Closed Captioning - The background fill color is no longer reversed
      • 3538152 - Patch Installer - Corrects an issue in the Beta Channel only, where NPSWF32.dll was erroneously being marked Read-Only after a patch update.  This would cause subsequent uninstalls or manual over-installs to fail.  Today's installer will now automatically detect and correct this situation during the installation process.
      • 3530555 - HTTP Live Streaming - Firefox onWindows - Corrects an issue where video was not being rendered when in full-screen mode, using software video decoding with wmode=windows.
      • 3530421 - Video Playback - A performance enhancement to allow frames that miss the rendering window by a few milliseconds to be rendered where they were previously skipped.  This is a nuanced fix that eliminates subtle jerkiness in some scenarios.
      • An AS2 child SWF can no longer modify the parent's stage properties without permission from the parent SWF.  This corrected behavior was previously applied only to child SWF versions 18 and higher, but now applies to all SWF versions.  

        If you have legacy content deployed that depends on this behavior, you should test and modify it as needed.
      • Multiple Stability and Security Enhancements
