September updates for Adobe Flash

adobe_flash_8s600x600_2 Actually… this time “patch tuesday” came on monday for Adobe’s Flash player plugin. The company released a bulletin for updated Flash player plugins yesterday and I had my packages up in the repository before the end of monday. It was the end of a busy day that started at 03:45 no thanks to an eager TCS escalation manager who called me twice for no good reason, so I did not have energy left to write a blog post in the evening.

This post puts an end to that hiatus: I can now point you to my Slackware packages for chromium-pepperflash-plugin (to be used together with my chromium browser package) which moved up to version 19.0.0.185, while the flashplayer-plugin (for Mozilla-compatible browsers) got incremented to 11.2.202.521.

The main download locations for the Flash plugin packages are as always:

If you are using the slackpkg+ extension for slackpkg, then you just run “slackpkg update && slackpkg update flash”. Alternatively, you can subscribe to my repository RSS feed to stay informed of any updates.

Hi Eric,
downloading now from http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/sbrepos/14.1/x86/.

It’s slow, not surprisingly: probably others folks received your email too…

This triggers a question: this URL is the one I have in slackpkgplus.conf, but would you prefer that we use another one not to overload your US mirror?

Anyway, thanks!
Cheers,
Didier

You’re free to use whatever mirror you prefer. Sometimes the load on taper is high and download speeds are affected. That cannot be helped.
