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 184.108.40.206, while the flashplayer-plugin (for Mozilla-compatible browsers) got incremented to 220.127.116.111.
The main download locations for the Flash plugin packages are as always:
- http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/ (master site)
- http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/people/alien/slackbuilds/ (my own US mirror)
- http://alien.slackbook.org/slackbuilds/ (US)
- http://slackware.org.uk/people/alien/slackbuilds/ (UK)
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.
