A couple of days ago Adobe abandoned the development of Flash Player for mobile platforms, and informed that henceforth focus its efforts on creating applications for smartphones and tablets and the optimization of HTML5, the most popular web standard time.
However, the U.S. firm promised to launch a latest version of Flash Player for Android and BlackBerry playbook and fulfilled. It is available to issue 11.1 of the now-defunct platform, which offers features not too innovative, but it solves some problems of security.
According to Adobe this update provides patches for 12 critical vulnerabilities and tries to close your short life in the mobile arena in the most dignified as possible. But what most intrigued about the “death” of Flash Player is what will happen from now with the security support. The U.S. company said it will remain in force, but without more details.
So here is where we wonder how long these patches will be available as Adobe did not provide any specific plans for smartphones and tablets. It seems that in the rush to abandon their own creation, the company had not cared much to offer detailed answers to users.
Hours ago the news broke that Research in Motion will be responsible for continuing the support of Adobe Flash Player for BlackBerry Playbook, but for Android users very encouraging developments there. For now if you want to download the 11.1 edition from the Android Market.
