Dear Readers of my blog,
Today, I became a first time father of a baby boy. Although this is a very exciting time in my private life, it is also a time when I will be unable to respond to your comments, questions and suggestions in a timely manner.
If you have questions or issues with Flash Player in general, please post to the Flash Player forums.
If you have questions or issues with Flash Player installers, updating mechanisms or policies around these, please post to the Flash Player installation forums.
Thank you for your understanding and I’ll make sure to get back to you as soon as possible.
Catch you on the flip side.
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!
I’d like to take a moment to welcome everybody to my new blog. The goal of this blog will be to give a bit of insight into some of the solutions that we’re developing here at Adobe, but also to discuss some general problems in computer science and software development. You are invited and encouraged to share your opinion in the comments. Should you read about topics that you’re actively working on yourself, or if you have experience that would be beneficial to other people, don’t hesitate to share.
With this being said, let’s get started!
