Adobe has a new version of its Flash Player available for Android devices, and this time, it’s thankfully not just a security fix.
Flash Player 10.3.186.6 contains a collection of compatibility fixes that, though they look to be a little specific in their scope, might just be the ticket if you were running into some unexplained issues viewing Flash content with a previous release.
If you ran into slowdowns when viewing really complicated Flash animations, the kind with plenty of vector elements moving on-screen at once, this release includes some optimizations that may help it play back more smoothly. A bugfix dealing with text inside Flash animations should correct a problem where words didn’t wrap-around as they should have, and some changes to how a couple calls are handled should prevent crashes. There’s also a fix that will let certain Flash files load where they wouldn’t in the past, but Adobe doesn’t specify what exactly it did to fix this issue.
Check for your update to Flash Player 10.3.186.6 in the Android Market today.
