Adobe has launched its new Flash Player plugin for Windows 7 that it says is designed to improve performance by 30%, enabling developers to include new features and performance enhancements.
The Flash Player plug-in will be installed automatically on Windows 7 and Windows Vista, and will also work on Mac OS X 10.8.3 or higher, as well as Windows XP.
Adobe says it plans to release the new version in the first half of 2016, which is the first time Flash has been installed on Windows.
The company has released an official blog post that includes some of the technical details, including that the new plugin will be automatically installed on new Windows 7 PCs and that it will “provide a smoother user experience with improved performance”.
The company says it will be able to update its existing Flash Player on a new PC at no cost.
However, it is important to note that Adobe has not provided any technical documentation for the update, nor has it provided any documentation for how to install it on a PC.
Adobe has provided a link to a Flash installation guide in its Flash Player support forum that is a good place to get started.
“Flash Player 1.0.5 has been released and is available to download from Adobe’s website,” Adobe said in the post.
“We strongly encourage you to upgrade your existing Flash players to this new version.”
