Software update: Adobe Flash Player




Adobe has released version 32 of Flash Player and the Integrated Runtime. This browser plug-in makes it possible to play Flash content, including so-called rich Internet applications and streaming audio and video. Flash Player is ingrained in Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge, for other browsers it will have to be installed separately. The use has been declining for a while in favor of html5 and more and more browsers require an extra mouse click to play Flash content. The release notes for this issue can be found below.

Mac NPAPI Sandbox – Mozilla Firefox
The Mac NPAPI Flash sandbox is enabled by default on Firefox 62 and later. Disabling the sandbox requires using: config to set “dom.ipc.plugins.sandbox-level.flash” to 0 and then restarting the browser. The sandbox is known for the following features:
Print to PDF from the Flash print dialog
Print to “Open in Preview” from the Flash print dialog
Quicklook in the File-> Open dialog
Saving files to the filesystem from a Flash applet
Flash applets downloading and running the Adobe Air installer
Flash triggers Adobe Air applications to run
Android AIR Runtime Play Store Availability
Adobe is unpublishing the shared AIR Runtime from the Google Play Store on September 11th, 2018. Download the Google Play Store. Adobe has not supported shared runtime packaging since AIR 26, and the vast majority of developers will not be impacted by this change. For those that still need access to the shared runtime APK, please see the Adobe AIR archive to download the appropriate version.

App Transport Security
With macOS 10.11, Apple has App Transport Security (ATS) which mandates that applications use secure network connections over HTTPS only. Because this is a significant change, Apple has provided applications override via NSAllowsArbitraryLoads which will allow insecure connections.
With AIR SDK 27, all AIR applications built for macOS will automatically have the NSAllowsArbitraryLoads key set as true in their info.plist file. This is a temporary solution. Apple may reject your application during the review process or disable the usage of NSAllowsArbitraryLoads in future OS updates. We recommend using secure network connections over HTTPS in your applications.

AIR tvOS Support Moved to Labs
To help focus our testing on the most popular platforms, we’ve decided to support the AIR beta channel. You can download the latest SDK about at
