    8/8/2017 - Release - Flash Player 26

    chris.campbell Adobe Employee

      In today's release, we've updated Flash Player with important bug fixes and security updates.  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 (APSB17-23)

       

      Features for Flash Player 26:

      D2D Vector Printing Support

      This feature brings back vector printing in Microsoft Edge in Windows 10 and Immersive IE in Windows 8 in "Out of Process" mode.  This feature will not only enhance the speed of printing but also reduce the data size input.  Initially, a mixed way to print (GDI Vector + D2D Bitmap) has been used in ActiveX Windows 8.1 and above.  Now Vector printing will be done through D2D APIs in Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.  There is no difference in the Actionscript API’s.

       

      For complete information please see our release notes.
