The Latest Flash Is Buggy – v11.3.300.257 64bit

The latest flash (v11.3.300.257) is buggy.  It’s crashed on me a bunch of times.  When I change the window and return, it doesn’t redraw properly.  Previous flash versions didn’t do that.

That always is frustrating, when an “upgrade” breaks software.

  1. Adobe has been suiciding flash as fast as possible it seems. Did you know they outsourced the AdvancedDataGrid component? Its 3000 lines of crap :)

    • I don’t follow Flash programming. I decided that HTML5+Javascript is more worth learning. Also, I have to pay $$ for a Flash SDK.

      Flash on phones is a problem. There’s no “mousehover” operation on phones, which is a key to much flash content. Apple banned Flash from the iPhone, due to their “no 3rd party runtimes” rule.

      After dealing with PDFs at my most recent job, I hate Adobe. They wanted to gouge for $30k plus a percentage of sales, to sell software that allowed PDF markup in a browser via Reader.

  2. You are absolutley right as I ma experienced the same issues wiht chewing cpu as well and it has made me realize that similar issues in the past coincided with flash updates. Fortunately the chrome/firefox revisions behind this currently buggy version are a few digits behind which is why in past i have switched in desperation to one of the them whenever this happens. Maybe getting patches out there for the endless security holes in their buggy software leads to issues — i would advice anyone out there not to bother upgrading to this version but wait for the next realease!
