    4/20/2017 - Release - Flash Player 25

    chris.campbell Adobe Employee

      In today's release, we've updated Flash Player NPAPI for macOS with a fix that improves the workflow for some users when launching external applications, such as Adobe Connect.  Current Flash Player customers who have selected the "Allow Adobe to install updates (recommended)" update mechanism will be automatically updated to the latest version of Flash Player over the next 24 hours.

       

      The most recent Flash Player security bulletin can be found here: Security Bulletin (APSB17-10)

       

       

      Features for Flash Player 25:

      Separate HTTP and HTTPS permissions for Camera and Microphone

      With Flash Player 24 release, we provided users with a fine-grained control over how permissions are granted for their camera and microphone data. These settings are visible in the Global Settings Manager and Native Control Panel for Mac and Windows.  With the latest update of Flash Player 25, users can customize these settings from the Native Control Panel for both HTTP and HTTPS on Linux too.

       

      For complete information please see our release notes.
