[BETA] Adobe Flash Player Beta 13.0

1/28/2014 - Beta -Flash Player 13.0.0.80
The latest Flash Player 13 builds are now available.
This is a beta release of Flash Player 13, code named 'King'.

Adobe® Flash® Player 13 drives innovation for rich, engaging digital experiences with new features for cross-platform browser-based viewing of expressive rich internet applications, content, and videos across devices. This beta release provides access to the Flash Player 13 runtime for Mac OS and Windows desktop environments.
New and Updated Features:

Supplementary Characters Enhancement Support for TextField
This is a desktop enhancement for supporting surrogate pairs in the TextField control. Now, characters out of the Basic Multilingual Plane(BMP) with Unicode code points between U+10000 and U+10FFFF will work correctly in the TextField control. It greatly enlarges the code point range we support and includes characters like emotion symbols (emoticons) and complex CCJK characters. This feature has been under an extended beta period. We anticipate this being included into the release version of the Runtime 13 release.

Full Screen video message tweak
We've made a small tweak to the "Press Esc to exit full screen mode." message that's seen on full screen video. We've heard for sometime that this message obscures content and we wanted to make a change that both satisfies security concerns and customer viewing enjoyment. To help, we've simply moved the message towards the top of the screen from it's original centered position.

Testing Guidance:
This release focuses on enhanced premium video capabilities and new platform support. We're looking for feedback on stability and compatibility with existing content on these new platforms.

Fixed Issues:
3058752: Move 'Press ESC to exit full screen' to the top
Note, this currently only works for hardware accelerated video (e.g. YouTube)

Please uninstall any previous versions of Flash Player before installing this prerelease build.

See Release Notes for more information.

From the notes.
Flash Player 13 has the following minimum system requirements:
"512MB of RAM (1GB RAM recommended for netbook class devices), 512MB of graphics
memory".

That is a hike in graphics memory versus Flash 12
"512MB of RAM (1GB of RAM recommended for netbooks); 128MB of graphics memory".

2/20/2014 - Beta - Flash Player 13.0.0.130

Additional New and Updated Features:
New Stage3D texture wrapping modes - Currently you can set the wrapping mode of a texture to either clamp or repeat. Using the repeat option will repeat the texture on both the U and V axis. However, in some use cases, you might only want to repeat the texture on only one axis, either u or v. This is now possible with two new parameters: REPEAT_U_CLAMP_V and CLAMP_U_REPEAT_V.

Stage3D Anti-Aliasing for Render texture - Anti-Aliasing is a useful technology to improve image quality. We've now implemented hardware based Multisampling Anti-Aliasing (MSAA) on desktop platforms. To enable this please set the level from 0 to 4 in Context3D's setRenderToTexture().

0 = 1 subsample, no antialiasing
1 = 2 subsamples, minimal antialiasing
2 = 4 subsamples, medium high-quality antialiasing
3 = 8 subsamples, high-quality antialiasing
4 = 16 subsamples, very high-quality antialiasing

Fixed Issues:
• [3058752] The 'Press ESC to exit full screen' dialog has been moved to the top of the screen
• [3617020] Addresses an issue where Flash Player was polling GamePad before the GamePad API was invoked
• [3683154] [Chrome] sciencenetlinks.com - Resolves an issue where content would not load completely in rare instances where a PPAPI getDownloadProgress event was not received
• [3679210] Resolved an issue where TextBlock.findPreviousAtomBoundary would return an incorrect value if it was called after TextElement.replaceText when discretionary hyphens were used
• [3679537] [OS X 10.9] Flash Player's native control panel can now be launched through the right-click context menu as expected. [Requires OS X 10.9.1 (13B40) or higher]
• [3680211] Resolves an issue where Flash Player would stop rendering when embedded in a page that also contains WebGL Canvas element and was forced to fall back to software rendering.
• [Win8.1] starwars.com - Full Screen content now renders in Full-Screen mode
• [3685541] [Win8.1] Flash Player now handles IVS characters and surrogate pairs correctly in TextFields.
• [3697077] [Win8.1] nba.com - Video controls are now correctly displayed in Full-Screen Mode
• [3685519] [Win8.x] Pressing the Menu key on the software keyboard now correctly triggers the right-click context menu when in Modern mode.
• [3689360] [Win8.x] Yahoo Messenger - The logo is now displayed correctly, instead of a black rectangle.
• [3702323] Resolves a intermittent hang encountered when playing Encrypted HLS content

Re: [Updated] Adobe Flash Player Beta 13.0

Thanks for the link! Saw someone else that had same problem with 13.0.0.133 - which I did as well. Same results since released 12.0.0.70 works fine under OS/X 10.9.2.

Since Adobe had security problems with registered user info and I can only post by signing up -- I will NOT signup to post or reply to the other user who had the same problem. Interestingly enough with Snow Leopard (10.6.8) the Betas run with no problem! Not the first problem I have had with new release 10.9.2 of OS/X.

4/15/2014 - Beta - Flash Player 13.0.0.199
Updated Flash Player 13 and AIR 13 betas, code named King, are now available on Adobe Labs.
New and Updated Features:

Enhanced Supplementary Character Support for TextField
Characters from the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP) with Unicode code points between U+10000 and U+10FFFF now work correctly in TextField controls. This change greatly enlarges the code point range we support, and now includes characters like emoticons and complex CCJK characters.

Relocated Full Screen Video Warning to Top of Screen
We've made a small tweak to the "Press Esc to exit full screen mode" warning that is displayed for full screen video. We've received a lot of feedback from developers because the dialog obscures content, and we wanted to make a change that both satisfies security concerns and customer viewing enjoyment. To reduce the impact of the dialog on the on-screen content, we've moved the dialog to the top of the screen.

New Stage3D Texture Wrapping Modes
Developers can currently set the wrapping mode of a texture to either clamp or repeat. Using the repeat option will repeat the texture on both the U and V axis. However, in some use cases, you may only want to repeat the texture on either the u or v axis.

This is now possible with the introduction of two new parameters:
REPEAT_U_CLAMP_V and CLAMP_U_REPEAT_V

Stage3D Anti-Aliasing for Texture Rendering
Anti-Aliasing is a useful for improving perceived image quality. Hardware based Multisampling Anti-Aliasing (MSAA) is now available on all desktop platforms. To enable MSAA, set the level from 0 to 4 using the new Context3D, setRenderToTexture() method.

• 0 = 1 subsample, no antialiasing
• 1 = 2 subsamples, minimal antialiasing
• 2 = 4 subsamples, medium high-quality antialiasing
• 3 = 8 subsamples, high-quality antialiasing
• 4 = 16 subsamples, very high-quality antialiasing

Testing Guidance:
We're looking for feedback on stability and compatibility with existing content on these new features.

Fixed Issues:
3739504 - Mac Only - Compiler change causes Flash Player to crash on load
Multiple stability and security fixes
