If I try and update my flashplayer via the update service in Windows it looks for update information from here: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/update/current/sau/15/xml/version.xml. Which says that the latest versions are 167 and 152.
But if I run the command to update with the FlashUtil I get 189?
Why the difference? It's very annoying.
Some releases are what referred to as silent releases, and some are loud releases, although most are silent releases (normally only about 4 per year are loud). Silent releases are updated via Background Updates, if users have opted into Background Updates. Loud releases are announced via a Notification window and are not installed silently.
