Adobe Flash Player update brings better security and fixes to HTC EVO

AbodeFlash Adobe has been doing a fine job recently with updates to its Flash Player coming out in a timely fashion. In the latest release,, we see some updated security, bug fixes, and even a crash fix specifically for the HTC EVO.

While there have been a number of security enhancements in the past couple of weeks, it is never a bad thing to have more implemented, as there seems to be an ever increasing pool of bad people out there who are attempting to take control of your phone remotely via security exploits. 

As for specific items, not all apply to the HTC EVO but many do, such as a reported issue with flash videos not working for HTC EVO users in certain cases. Unfortunately there is little documentation as to which videos might be causing the issue and why it was happening, but hopefully now your browsing will be met with even fewer hiccups.

As for the full list of fixes this time around:

-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 games.

-Fixed an issue where games on freeze when users exit from Full-Screen mode.

So go ahead and update that app or head over to the Android Market to get the latest version if you do not have it already installed.
