RC 494: New Flash Player problem fixed

Post by par » Sat Aug 13, 2011 3:05 pm

Guys, many of you already know YoWindow does not work with new Flash Player - 10.3.183.5

Only today I have realised the scale of the problem.
Any YoWindow copy will stop to work as soon as Flash Player is upgraded to a new one.

This RC fixes the problem on YoWindow side.
And it will be in the release as soon as possible.
Please test it and let me know if you see any other problems.

In case you are wondering why YoWindow has stopped to work, read on.

A long time ago I have made a mistake in the program (I have used "continue" word instead of "return" in a function body, not in a cycle).
This is an incorrect programming language operation.
But it was working.
Until the new Flash player.
Adobe has changed the behavior of Flash Player in this incorrect case.
And YoWindow has stopped to work.

So the person to blame is me :)

I have written a letter to Adobe explaining the problem.
I hope they will rollback their changes in Flash Player.
But it seems to me that the chances are low.

Hope Adobe will take care about it.

Just to be on the safe side...

Can I install RC 494 without the latest flash player installed on my pc ?

I now have version 10,3,181,14 installed...

@Wally,

You can safely do so, I just did.
Mind you I was on version 10.3.181.34 (you wrote 14 at the end, maybe a typo?)

@Pasha,

Thanks!!
Everything works ok as usually after your fixes :good:
To summarise it: Flash 10.3.183.5 and YoWindow 2.0.494 (or higher I expect) work fine together again :Yahoo!:

Oke,

I obviously haven't tried that.
But Pasha's answer says enough I think.

Hi Pasha,

I tried RC 494 out on both WinXPs and Win7. I went thru 2 sets of testing, once with the previous flash player and now with the new flash player. Everything is working okay on both flash players.

I tried Fiesta, Amelie, and making Millie fly. Everything was working including seeing a new animated cloud formation. I think Werner will be happy with this cloud formation!!

Thank you for fixing the flash player issue. :Yahoo!:
