Dear Non-Apple ports, Running Flash has been more difficult over the past few years as part of a (semi-) coordinated effort by browsers and Adobe. The plan is to remove support for Flash + NPAPI by the end of this year. See the links below.
I'd like to remove our NPAPI code soon, but I want to make sure the other ports are ok with this. Please speak up if you have a reason to keep it in. [Note that we will still have some plugin code e.g. our internal PDFPlugin, just no support for externally installed plugins] Dean * Adobe's end of life for Flash - https://theblog.adobe.com/adobe-flash-update/ * Chrome removing Flash support by end of 2020 - https://sites.google.com/a/chromium.org/dev/flash-roadmap * Google removing support for Flash by end of 2020 - https://www.blog.google/products/chrome/saying-goodbye-flash-chrome/ * Mozilla removing NPAPI by end of 2020 - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Plugins/Roadmap * Mozilla only uses NPAPI for Flash - https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2015/10/08/npapi-plugins-in-firefox/
