I'm looking for a way to get the major minor and release numbers for browser flash versions. In particular for Safari, and Chrome, because it looks like I can get on FF, Edge and IE. Below is an example from FireFox, and you can see I have access to the version. However in Safari, only have access to the major version. But its not enough, because if browsers begin blocking version 24.0.0.139 (example version), I have no way of letting users know they need to update their flash versions because I can only access the major versions. I'm not worried about Chrome because its self managed, but Safari would fall into that criteria.

FireFox Flash Version:

Missing version details in Safari:

We are going to use the master version REST endpoint to compare the users browser version with the latest Adobe version. Any help or guidance on this would be appreciated.

Best,

Amal Hussein

My assumption is that Safari isn't providing that information to JavaScript.  If you can't get it from JavaScript, you would would need to do it from ActionScript.  You could write a small SWF that polls System.capabilities, and just use it as a workaround to get that fine-grained detail on Safari.  You could pass the data back to/from JavaScript via ExternalInterface.
