    chris.campbell Adobe Employee

      The first Flash Player 17 beta builds are now available.  Beta builds can be downloaded from labs.adobe.com.


      New Features for Flash Player 17:


      • Control Panel Improvements

      The system control panel will now display the currently installed version of the ActiveX, NPAPI, and PPAPI plugins.  We've also clarified how Chrome and Chromium (PPAPI) users can edit their Flash Player settings.


      • Installer Improvements - Mac

      The Mac installer will no longer request users close the Chrome browser during installation.  In future versions we'll work to further improve the user experience of our installers.
