Adobe announce Flash is dead… or will be by 2020

Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats.

Adobe has finally submitted to the fact Flash is an outdated, battery draining, security mess that needs to go away.

It’s not going away quickly though. Updates and support will continue until 2020 giving content creators still using Flash (there are some??) plenty of time to migrate to other solutions.
