Adobe Updates Flash and Air for Gingerbread

November 10, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

Adobe wants to make sure their Flash Player and Air products work perfectly well on the upcoming Gingerbread version of Android, so they are now releasing updates to them. The Flash Player version will be bumped to, while the Air version will be updated to 2.5.1.

Here’s what they say in their blog:

“With the anticipation of the Android Gingerbread OS update, we will be delivering an update release for AIR for Android (2.5.1) that will be available on Android Market on Tuesday November 9th. This new release will address compatibility issues and be optimized to run on the Gingerbread OS update…
…In cases where a user receives the Gingerbread OS update before updating to the AIR 2.5.1 runtime, they will receive a native dialog on load stating that the application has quit unexpectedly and your application will fail to load. We’d like your assistance in preventing end users from this type of experience on their device.”
