The latest update of Adobe Flash Player is finally out! This is known as version 188.8.131.52 and it come with new features, security updates and bug fixes. The update applies to MacOS, Linuc system, Windows and Chrome OS users.
The update that included Linux systems came as a surprise since a few months ago, an announcement was made by Adobe Systems that come 2017, the support for the NPAPI Flash Player version will not be provided anymore. And then Chris Campbell of Adobe made a statement that there was a reversal.
As for the reason why the sudden change of plans, no clarification was given. What Campbell confirmed, though, was that once testing was over and the community has spoken, both the PPAPI and NPAPI Linux builds will be released and further updates should be expected. Moreover, these updates will be concurrent with other platform updates. They even made a promise that no Linux user will be left behind since they plan to keep Linux fans abreast of future update releases.
