Google has announced the release of a new version of its Chrome browser, incorporating a new version of the embedded Adobe Flash Player. The new version for Windows, Mac OS X, and Chrome Frame is 12.0.742.122; for Linux it is 12.0.742.124. Apart from the updated Flash Player, there are no changes specified.
Adobe’s Flash Player Status page still shows the current Player version as 10.3.181.34, released in late June. If I uncover any more information about this aspect of the update, I will post a note here.
Windows users should get the new version via the built-in automatic update mechanism; you can verify that your system has been updated by clicking on the tools menu (the little wrench), and then on “About Google Chrome”. Linux users can get the updated package using their distros’ usual update tools.
