Adobe Flash Player updated to version 10.3, brings bug and security fixes

Adobe has release the update to Flash in the Android Market this afternoon.  This update directly addresses two known security issues discovered recently (see security bulletins APSB11-12 and APSB11-13 (opens in new tab) for details), and brings the following bug fixes and enhancements:

  • Enabled NEON optimizations for OMAP4 (Cortex A-9) based devices.
  • Corrected an issue on the Samsung Galaxy S where H.264 video at resolutions of 720p and below was not displayed.
  • Fixed an issue where app packaging would fail for Android Apps using Flash Player in WebView that set android:hardwareAcceleration to True in their AndroidMainfest.xml.
  • Fixed a crash on the HTC EVO that some users encountered with specific video.
  • Fixed an issue that caused video frames to stop rendering on long streaming videos (> 1 hour) on some Motorola devices. 
  • Fixed an issue where touch events were getting delayed with games.
  • Fixed an issue where games on freeze when users exit from Full-Screen mode.

You can grab the update from the Android Market (we'll have the link after the break) and as always, it's advised that all users update.

  • The last update I got was to 10.3
  • Same here, it was like 2 weeks ago.
  • Yeah mine is .22 so this is a very minor update
  • Why isn't the Flash Player showing up in my list of installed apps? It IS installed, and locating it in the market gives me the option to update, not install. Droid X with Gingerbread.
  • Go to settings in Market and make sure "show all apps" is checked and you should be good to go.
  • Just throwing it out there, in case it affects others. Prior to this update, I'd been able to access Netflix on my Viewsonic gtablet, but as of the update Netflix won't open at all.
  • And how big is this one going to be? Adobe Flash and that other one are the biggest apps around...
  • double post....?
  • Does this mean that all Qualcomm snapdragon based devices will automatically benefit from the Neon optimization as well or just OMAP4? I believe Tegra2 does not have NEON so it will not benefit from the optimization but all Qualcomm chips do support Neon.
