Alerting customers of customers

How could Adobe have handled WordPress better? I’m still thinking about that “Uploading Gone in Flash 10” piece last week, from Allen Stern.

Background: Adobe Flash Player 10 had to move to a stricter security model in a number of ways, including explicit user permission for file uploads. There’s been much ongoing guidance, and people who make SWF themselves seem to have made this jump successfully. But there has been higher-than-normal pain among JavaScript developers, bloggers, and video sites: they may not actually create SWF themselves, but they rely on SWFs made by Adobe’s customers. These folks didn’t get the word.

How can things be improved? I don’t know. Do you have ideas?
