Pour one out for Adobe Flash’s last update

Let’s pour one out for Adobe Flash.  Adobe has released it’s final scheduled update to Flash Player, just as it will stop supporting Flash on December 31st, 2020, and it will block Flash content from running on January 12th, 2021.

For those interested in exploring the best of Flash Media, there is an open source emulator Ruffle, and the Internet Archive is using it to preserve over 1,000 games and animations.

Otherwise, uninstall that sucker if you still have it deployed.

Why do we care?

Flash had it’s moment, and should be long out of infrastructure.  If it’s not, you have a very short closing window to address that.
