Semi-New Flash Player Versioning

The Flash Player team has made some changes to the way that versions are numbered/described. Instead of the old way in which something like 9.0.115.0 magically represented Flash Player 9 Update 3, the new system is as follows:

major.minor.bugfix.build

In other words, 10.0.22.36 reads as FP 10.0, bugfix 22, build 36. The build number is basically irrelevant to us; we should continue focusing solely on the first three numbers. Also, the bugfix number will have three variations; for example:

10.0.20.# – developer build
10.0.21.# – beta build
10.0.22.# – RC/GM build

I am really happy to see that they decided to move forward with this. It should be much easier to keep tabs on feature-specific versions and so forth from now on.
