    11/12/2013 - Release - Flash Player 11.9

    chris.campbell Adobe Employee

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

       

      New Features:

      • Safe Mode in Safari 6.1 and higher
        Safari 6.1 includes an updated version of Safari with Safe Mode, which implements new security restrictions on the operation of browser plug-ins.  To the extent possible, we've adapted Flash Player to transparently handle these changes.  A small number of behaviors will change in the context of Safe Mode and are explained in the Known Issues section below.
      • Mac .pkg Installation Support
        Deploying Flash Player and keeping it up to date in enterprise environments is a critical task for system administrators worldwide. We’re introducing a new .pkg installer format for our distribution partners to reduce their workload.  Administrators can now deploy Flash Player for Mac using industry-standard management tools.

       

       

      Notable Fixes and Enhancements:


      • [3624280] Sound now plays correctly in both channels on the Logitech G35/G930 Surround Sound headset
      • [3648273] [EaseScreen] - Corrects redraw issue affecting applications that embed the ActiveX control, introduced in Flash Player 11.9.900.92
      • [3646576] [Win 8.x] - Full-Screen Flash video now rescales correctly when switching between Portrait and Landscape modes multiple times
      • [3646574] [Win 8.x] - Clicking on an embedded "Watch on Youtube" link no longer triggers the Internet Explorer pop-up blocker
      • [3646574] [Win 8.1] - FileReference - Filtering by supported filetype now works as expected
      • [3632276] [HTTP Live Streaming] - Apple segmented playlists containing i-frames no longer cause streams to pause in Trickplay mode
      • [3631874] [Mac] - Content using enhanced license chaining now works as expected

       

      Known Issues:

       

      The following behaviors will be modified in Safari 6.1 and higher in Safe Mode:

       

      • AIR Badge Installs - AIR Badge Installer will not launch an installer when running Safari 7 in Safe Mode.  Users will instead see a dialog with a link to more details and workarounds on an Adobe website.
      • Adobe Connect Plug-In Install - The Connect Plug-In Express Install will no longer work on Safari 7 in Safe Mode.  Users will instead see a dialog with a link to more details on an Adobe website.
      • Flash Player Global Settings - When a users launches the Global Settings menu from the Flash Player context menu on Safari 7 in Safe Mode, the user will be taken to the classic SWF-based preferences menu on an Adobe website, instead of the native Flash Player settings UI in the MacOS Control Panel.
      • LocalConnection - When a LocalConnection is constructed from a SWF hosted in Safe Mode, it may only establish a connection with other SWFs also hosted in Safe Mode.  If a LocalConnection is constructed from a tab with Safe Mode disabled, it will not be able to communicate with a SWF in a Safe Mode tab.
