Adobe has announced
that its proprietary Flash plugin will be moving to a new "Pepper" API for
interaction with the browser, leaving the old Netscape plugin API behind.
"For Flash Player releases after 11.2, the Flash Player browser
plugin for Linux will only be available via the 'Pepper' API as part of the
Google Chrome browser distribution and will no longer be available as a
direct download from Adobe. Adobe will continue to provide security updates
to non-Pepper distributions of Flash Player 11.2 on Linux for five years
from its release.
