Welcome to Flash Player 12 and AIR 4! In today’s scheduled release, we’ve updated both Flash Player and AIR with new and improved functionality, important bug fixes and security updates.
Today we are introducing a new numbering scheme for our product versions. Adopting the pattern set by Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, we will simply update the major version number with each subsequent release. In other words, beginning with this release, Flash Player will become Flash Player 12. With each new major release, roughly every 3 months, that number will increase by one.
This change will also apply to the AIR Runtime and AIR SDK. This release will be numbered AIR 4 and AIR SDK 4; however, with our “King” (Q2 2014) release, the version number will be synchronized with the Flash Player version at 13.
