    chris.campbell Employee Hosts

      The next version of Flash Player is available for immediate download.  In today's release we've updated Flash Player with important security updates and bug fixes.  We recommend users update to the latest version.

       

      Security update details can be found here: Security Bulletin (APSB14-16)

       

      New Features for Flash Player 14:

       

      • Anisotropic Filtering
        This new texture sampling filter can enhance the image quality of textures on surfaces that are at oblique viewing angles. There are two ways to enable this feature:

        In AGAL, set one of the values – "anisotropic2x", "anisotropic4x", "anisotropic8x", or "anisotropic16x" to the filter option in the sampling instructions. Or call Context3D::setSamplerStateAt with the 3rd parameter "filter" being one of the values defined in Context3DTextureFilter - "ANISOTROPIC2X", "ANISOTROPIC4X", "ANISOTROPIC8X", or "ANISOTROPIC16X"

       

      • New Stage3D "Standard" Profile
        Developers can now request this high level profile when creating Context3D. Three new features are available in this profile:

        • Multiple render target allows to you to draw geometry to multiple outputs (up to 4) during one drawing
        • Floating point texture allows you to create Texture, RectangleTexture and CubeTuxture with the RGBA16F folder.
        • AGAL v2 contains these improvements:
          • Increased register size
          • Partial derivative instructions
          • Fragment depth output
          • Conditional forward jump
