Adobe Flash Player End of Life

    Hello all,

    at the point that FLASH stops working in January 2021,  I wonder:

    A) Would it be feasible to use a portable browser with flash support to be able to continue accessing the UIM flash websites? I don't want to upgrade to something that doesn't seem mature enough, we have a lot of dependency on the groups and the tree.  (for our day to day the current web works reasonably well)


    B) If I don't want to update to 20.3 (in my test environment the concept test is a disaster), Do you think is a good option  update to 20.1 release ? (where Flash access is maintained and it also incorporates the new console I think I remember)

    any alternative is welcome

    Cheers

    some customers that are using Chrome on a Citrix XenApp server with an older release so they can support products that still use Flash in 2021.
    Some just block browser updates via a policy, which of course an end user can circumvent.
    Point is some clients are planning on staying at the old version.
    OC was introduced with uim 9.0.2 and enhanced with 20.1 so with either you can get the look and feel.

    Thank u very much David;

    If I understood correctly, in 20.1 I could use OC and at the same time the legacy version in Flash, is that correct?

    FerranE,

    The 20.1 OC is very different then the 20.3.1 OC.  20.1 is pretty much a read-only with not everything had been ported over in that release.

    Thanks Jay for this info.

    I also think that the idea would be to jump to 20.1 to continue using Flash and later change to 20.3.x, right now it is very difficult continue without the flash client.

    Where can I download 20.1?  (I only have the link to download 20.3)

    The download should be on the support site.  We have not pulled those versions.
