Adobe Flash update time – december
A quick notice about the latest Flash updates released by Adobe today:
I updated my chromium-pepperflash-plugin package for Slackware 14.1 and -current. I’ll start working on an updated Chromium package for Slackware as soon as the new sources come online. You can read more on Google’s Chrome blog. The new version of the PepperFlash plugin (binaries extracted from the Google Chrome 39.0.2171.95 RPMs) is 18.104.22.168.
An update for the “legacy” Flash player plugin for Linux, aka the NPAPI plugin for Mozilla-compatible browsers is available as well. The updated flashplayer-plugin package bears the version 22.214.171.1245.
For my pipelight package, you can easily update the Windows plugins it installed for you earlier (including the Windows Flash player if you use that) by running (as root) the script:
# pipelight-plugin --update
A new package is not required therefore.
