Adobe announces rapid release cycle for Flash, starting now with version 11.5


Quote:
Adobe today announced it is moving Flash Player to a rapid release cycle. That means that as of Adobe Flash Player 11.5 beta, the software will be getting significantly more frequent updates.

If you’re scratching your head because you’re getting a feeling of déjŕ vu, let me explain. In March 2012, Adobe Flash Player 11.2 was released, and the Windows version included automatic updater options. This is different. We’re talking about using said feature for beta releases, which Adobe says are installed by some 1.1 million testers.

It's just for Beta versions.

Update on September 27: Adobe got back to let me know that betas will typically be pushed twice a week, and possibly more frequently if necessary. As for the final versions of Flash, Adobe doesn’t expect a change in their frequency. “This Rapid Release cycle will impact the frequency and update mechanism of the beta releases only,” an Adobe spokesperson told The Next Web in a statement.

I don't like rapid release. I guess I'm old school. And plus, it reminds me of something premature.

Reminds me of trying to tune up a car with an internal problem and it doesn't tune right... so you keep trying retunes in hopes to find something that works.

This is so true. Firefox is on a similar path and the way I have it figured is they will be at version 353 in about 12 months. Adobe Flash already rolls out updates about once a week from what I've noticed, so it's already on a rapid update cycle if you ask me.
