    chris.campbell Adobe Employee

      The next version of Flash Player is available for immediate download.  In today's release we've updated Flash Player with new functionality, critical security fix.  We recommend all users update to the latest version.

       

      Security update details can be found here: Security Bulletin (APSB15-05)

       

      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.


      For complete information please see our release notes.



      Fixed Issues

      • CrossBridge applications break after FP version >= 16.(3938269)
      • [Chromium 394217] Wrong text displayed with embedded fonts.(3782659)
      • Multiple security and stability fixes

       

       

      Current Flash Player desktop users that have enrolled in the "Allow Adobe to install updates (recommended)" or the "Notify me to install updates" update options will receive an update notification dialog within 7 days from today (please note that Windows users will need to restart their system to receive the notification dialog.)

       

      Please note that both Flash Player for Google Chrome and Microsoft Internet Explorer for Windows 8.x are updated using different mechanisms.  Flash Player for Google Chrome updates will occur during regular Chrome updates.  Flash Player updates for Internet Explorer on Windows 8.x will be provided by Microsoft though the Windows automatic update feature.
