Adobe resurrects Flash for Linux

Adobe has updated the Linux NPAPI Flash Player, moving it “in sync with the modern release branch” – currently version 23.

Adobe said the NPAPI version of the player was held at 11.2 for the past four years, with only security fixes pushed through.

“We have done this significant change to improve security and provide additional mitigation to the Linux community,” said Adobe.

Adobe previously said the NPAPI Linux releases would stop in 2017, but this was no longer the case.

“Once we have performed sufficient testing and received community feedback, we will release both NPAPI and PPAPI Linux builds with their major version numbers in sync and on a regular basis.”
