    Adobe seems to be constantly dealing with security vulnerabilities and other issues with Flash Player, creating updates almost weekly now. They released another one today, version, that has several fixes and enhancements.
    • Enabled NEON optimizations for OMAP4 (Cortex A-9) based devices.
    • Corrected an issue on the Samsung Galaxy S where H.264 video at resolutions of 720p and below was not displayed.
    • Fixed an issue where app packaging would fail for Android Apps using Flash Player in WebView that set android:hardwareAcceleration to True in their AndroidManifest.xml.
    • Fixed a crash on the HTC EVO that some users encountered with specific video.
    • Fixed an issue that caused video frames to stop rendering on long streaming videos (> 1 hour) on some Motorola devices.
    • Fixed an issue where touch events were getting delayed with Kongregate.com games.
    • Fixed an issue where games on Kongregate.com freeze when users exit from Full-Screen mode.
    It's a shame there are unscrupulous folks out there that make it necessary to constantly fill holes in software, but at least this update seems to have some other fixes as well. Kudos to Adobe for trying to play "plug the dam with your finger."
