  • Adobe announces the end of Flash in December 2020

    … and not a moment too soon. I can’t imagine how much they’re spending on keeping the holes plugged in the holy mess.

    Adobe Corporate Communications:

     we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

    I.e., HTML5, WebGL and WebAssembly.

    Microsoft’s announcement:

    We will phase out Flash from Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer, culminating in the removal of Flash from Windows entirely by the end of 2020.

    Good riddance, sez I.
