Flash Player Beta Channel Update

The latest Flash Player 13 builds are now available.  You can download Flash Player here: http://www.adobe.com/go/flashplayerbeta.

New and Updated Features:

  • Enhanced Supplementary Character Support for TextField  

    Characters from the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP) with Unicode code points between U+10000 and U+10FFFF nowl work correctly in TextField controls.  This change greatly enlarges the code point range we support, and now includes characters like emoticons and complex CCJK characters.

  • Relocated Full Screen Video Warning to Top of Screen

    We have made a small tweak to the "Press Esc to exit full screen mode" warning that is displayed for full screen video.  We've received a lot of feedback from developers because the dialog obscures content, and we wanted to make a change that both satisfies security concerns and customer viewing enjoyment. To reduce the impact of the dialog on the on-screen content, we've moved the dialog to the top of the screen.

  • New Stage3D Texture Wrapping Modes 
    Developers can currently set the wrapping mode of a texture to either clamp or repeat.  Using the repeat option will repeat the texture on both the U and V axis.  However, in some use cases, you may only want to repeat the texture on either the u or v axis.  
    This is now possible with the introduction of two new parameters:

  • Stage3D Anti-Aliasing for Texture Rendering

    Anti-Aliasing is a useful for improving perceived image quality.  Hardware based Multisampling Anti-Aliasing (MSAA) is now available on all desktop platforms.  To enable MSAA, set the level from 0 to 4 using the new Context3D.setRenderToTexture() method.0 = 1 subsample, no antialiasing

• 1 = 2 subsamples , minimal antialiasing
• 2 = 4 subsamples , medium  high-quality antialiasing
• 3 = 8 subsamples ,  high-quality  antialiasing
• 4 = 16 subsamples , very high-quality  antialiasing
