We’ve seen numerous issues with Adobe Flash over the past months from simple bugs to serious security loopholes. Of course the one thing that’s made these updates bearable has been the continued support from Adobe releasing frequent updates to address the issues at hand, and once again it’s about that time. Adobe has released an update for Flash Player which will bring your current version up to 10.3 and will address a few issues you may have been experiencing, while adding some enhancements and patching security holes.
A small list of ”Issues and Limitations” is being compiled based on experience with the new update and already lists a few issues for various devices.
