Adobe continues development of the next Flash Player version, so the company today rolled out the very first beta build of branch 15, which is projected to hit the stable channel in just a few weeks.

Adobe Flash Player 15.0.0.108 Beta doesn’t bring any visual changes and most improvements are made under the hood, so you might not notice anything new after installing it.

And still, it’s worth knowing that this build will now dispatch a rightMouseDown event for a when the user long touches flash content on a touch-enabled device, while also resolving a number of flash.globalization string failures on Windows 8.1.

At the same time, it also resolves a number of bugs, so the stand-alone player no longer crashes after you close an SWF file, while the camera capturing video in Chrome should get a higher FPS rate after updating.

As one could easily guess, this new beta version of Flash Player can be installed on pretty much every Windows version on the market, including the old Windows XP, which no longer gets updates and security patches since April this year.

Overall, the new preview build is mostly aimed at developers and those more advanced, but everyone can download Adobe Flash Player Beta 15 at any time to see what it brings new.
