    Flash 12 is out. I updated the direct exe download link to install_flash_player_12_plugin.exe and approved my revision.

    I made a second revision to update the Windows direct exe plugin download link to:

    ...which is the "workaround" direct exe link for the Flash plugin given here: http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/installation-problems-flash-player-windows.html#install_in_a_firewall_proxy_server_environment

    Adobe is going to a new version numbering system starting with Flash 12, increasing the version number by 1 ( 12 to 13, etc.) every 3 months or so.

    Welcome to Flash Player 12 and AIR 4!  In today's scheduled release, we've updated both Flash Player and AIR with new and improved functionality, important bug fixes and security updates.
    
    Today we are introducing a new numbering scheme for our product versions.  Adopting the pattern set by Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, we will simply update the major version number with each subsequent release.  In other words, beginning with this release, Flash Player will become Flash Player 12. With each new major release, roughly every 3 months, that number will increase by one.
