    Went back to version 10.3. Version 11.x miserably stuttered consistently when in full screen mode, especially at high resolution. Doubt this was fixed at all with version 12. As long as all websites still show flash media content with version 10.3 installed I'll stick with this old version and damn the so-called security risks. Most likely the real security holes come with the 11.x and 12.x versions with all the new bells and whistles added to these versions. Heck, v10.3 has a 3mb installer compared to 17mb's for v11.9. Many of the security problems with 10.3 had been addressed anyway with the one year plus worth extended support release status it received.

    1 star for Adobe for not even bothering to address the stuttering problem. Any Google search will show that stuttering has been a major complaint with Flash 11 and all Adobe support tells you to do is disable hardware acceleration which doesn't even fix the problem.

    So far I've seen no need for anyone to update to 11.8 unless it's on a mobile device. All fixes in 11.8 so far have been for mobile, which is why Adobe is providing Extended Support Releases(security updates) for version 11.7.x.

    Boooo. Version 10.3 no longer being given extended support for security updates. Must update to 10.7 for extended support. Once Adobe moves on to version 11.9(unless it's version 12.x next), I'll give 11.8 a try. I did have issues(one major) back when v11.4 was out, which seem to be resolved with version 11.7.

    3 1/2 stars.

    i used to use flash 10.3 for the longest time and i always test new versions when theyre not in beta. the 11.8 stable version seems to work just as good if not better than 10.3 so if you guys have been thinking of/wanting to upgrade go ahead and give this version a try. working fine for me in google chrome and firefox on all my favorites that used to lag with 11.7 as compared to 10.3. have fun
