Today we're pleased to announce that the next version of Flash Player is available for immediate download. This update includes the following new features and improvements:
Microsoft has released IE 11 on Windows 7 and we plan to officially support this in Flash Player 12.
Deploying Flash Player and keeping it up to date is a critical task for system administrators worldwide. In Flash Player 11.9 we added .pkg support for ease of deployment. In Flash Player 12, we've incorporated feedback from system administrators to improve the workflow and UI.
We've added a new enum Class called Context3DBufferUsage which defines two constants, STATIC_DRAW (default) and DYNAMIC_DRAW. These constants specify how buffers will be used in Stage3D. We've also added a new parameter, called "bufferUsage", to the constructors of VertexBuffer and IndexBuffer. This "bufferUsage" parameter uses one of the constants form Context3DBufferUsage, which will allow you to select the appropriate buffer type according to your needs.
We've added a new interface to Stage3D.requestContext3DMatchingProfiles(profiles:Vector.<String> ) which will create a Context3D with highest level suitable profile that is in profile array, based on the current hardware. A developer can check the newly added property 'profile' to obtain the current profile that was chosen by the Flash Runtime.
Notable Fixes and Enhancements:
The fix will be made available in the next Flash Player 12 update. Until then we recommend users use an alternate browser for applications that use p2p real time communications, including audio, video, data conferencing or chat applications.
The following behaviors will be modified in Safari 6.1 and higher in Safe Mode:
