Mysterious New Shockwave Player Appears

On Sept. 28, 2006 the latest version of the Windows Shockwave player appeared. It is version 10.1.4.020. Mac versions remain at 10.1.1.016. The strange thing is that no information exists about what has changed. In several mailing lists I am on, the call has gone out for information, but no word from Adobe. The absence of Tom Higgins is already being felt. The developer community is a little pissed off. Developers need to be kept in the loop on these things. There should be a “What changed in version 10.1.4.020” document of some sort.

It is probably something that doesn’t matter, like a slight change to the Google Toolbar installed, which is Windows-only so that makes sense. But there have been some reports of the new install removing some Xtras from the Shockwave folder. Come on Adobe, you’ve got to keep developers in the loop on these things!

    I do application packaging and have been waiting a long time for this version as it is available as an MSI install instead of InstallShield.
    Perhaps this is the only difference?
