Adobe Announces Plans To Abandon Flash On Linux

Well, I hope that all of you Linux users like to use Chrome.  It looks like Adobe is cutting off Linux Flash support after 11.2.  It appears that there is an API to do Flash support but right now only Google has implemented it.  It appears that Mozilla has previously stated that they will not support it on FireFox.  While I don’t often use Flash under Linux all that often, it is still something that I like to have around so I install it on all of my MythTV boxes.

Adobe has issued a statement this morning that they will effectively be abandoning Flash Player support on Linux. After Flash Player 11.2 they will no longer be providing updates for Linux users but just maintaining the 11.2 release. Google is expected to take over with a Flash Player implementation based upon a new API, but only for Google Chrome-based web-browsers.
