Just like it happens on the second Tuesday of every month, Adobe rolled out a new version of its Flash Player, obviously bringing a number of fixes and improvements for all platforms.
At this point, the parent company has only updated the download links, so no release notes are available for the time being, but it’s safe to assume that it’s focused on fixing bugs and addressing security issues in the previous builds.
Adobe has recently matched its security release cycle with Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday rollout, so the company launches new updates for its software on the second Tuesday of each month, just like the Redmond-based software giant does to fix vulnerabilities in Windows, Office, and other products across its range.
Microsoft is also delivering the same Flash Player version via Windows Update to all users running Windows 8 and 8.1, as the company has pledged to keep users up-to-date by bundling Adobe’s client runtime environment in newer flavors of Internet Explorer.
Of course, all users are strongly recommended to install this new version, so download Adobe Flash Player 188.8.131.52 as soon as possible to make sure that you’re fully secure when browsing the web. If you’re using Internet Explorer, the same version will be shipped to you later via Windows Update.
