It is with great excitement that we released Flash Player 11.3 today. One element of this release is the immediate availability of the Background Updater for Mac!
The Background Updater on Mac works in much the same way as on Windows, with the difference that it uses a LaunchDaemon instead of a scheduled task and Windows service. After opting into the Background Updater during the installation, the Background Updater will trigger an update check with actual network traffic every 24 hours if the system remains connected to the Internet. If an update is found, it will be applied silently in the background.
As always, I’m looking forward to your feedback and questions in the comments section!
