Adobe® Flash® Player 13 drives innovation for rich, engaging digital experiences with new features for cross-platform browser-based viewing of expressive rich internet applications, content, and videos across devices. This beta release provides access to the Flash Player 13 runtime for Mac OS and Windows  desktop environments.

Version 13.0.0.133 Features

Enhanced Supplementary Character Support for TextField

Characters from the Basic Multilingual Plane (BMP) with Unicode code points between U+10000 and U+10FFFF nowl work correctly in TextField controls. This change greatly enlarges the code point range we support, and now includes characters like emoticons and complex CCJK characters.

Relocated Full Screen Video Warning to Top of Screen

We have made a small tweak to the "Press Esc to exit full screen mode" warning that is displayed for full screen video. We've received a lot of feedback from developers because the dialog obscures content, and we wanted to make a change that both satisfies security concerns and customer viewing enjoyment. To reduce the impact of the dialog on the on-screen content, we've moved the dialog to the top of the screen.

New Stage3D Texture Wrapping Modes

Developers can currently set the wrapping mode of a texture to either clamp or repeat. Using the repeat option will repeat the texture on both the U and V axis. However, in some use cases, you may only want to repeat the texture on either the u or v axis. This is now possible with the introduction of two new parameters: REPEATUCLAMPV and CLAMPUREPEATV

Stage3D Anti-Aliasing for Texture Rendering

Anti-Aliasing is a useful for improving perceived image quality. Hardware based Multisampling Anti-Aliasing (MSAA) is now available on all desktop platforms. To enable MSAA, set the level from 0 to 4 using the new Context3D.setRenderToTexture() method.0 = 1 subsamp le, no antialiasing

1 = 2 subsamples , minimal antialiasing
2 = 4 subsamples , medium high-quality antialiasing
3 = 8 subsamples , high-quality antialiasing
4 = 16 subsamples , very high-quality antialiasing

Known Issues

Application reloading child SWF hangs or crashes sometimes when packaged in AOT mode. (3327991)
App crashes if a symbol (used from the SWC(linked externally) of the SWF) is referenced prior to loading the child SWF. (3332723) preventDefault() is not honored for the ORIENTATION_CHANGING event on iOS. This is a behavior change from AIR 3.4 and will remain so. (3324338)

With AIR 3.5, it is no longer required to use platformsdk to point to iOS 6 SDK, as it is already included in the AIR SDK.
screenDPI values are different for retina and non-retina mode on iPhone 5. (3336287)
Packaging an IPA with requestedDisplayResolution as "standard" in application descriptor and using launch images "Default-568h@2x.png" and "Default@2x.png", both the images are showing up on iPhone 5 device. (3336456)

Fixed Issues

Background Audio in Android doesnt work(3319954)
A full screen application cannot be developed for iPhone 5. Default-568h@2x launch image can now be used to display a full screen app on iPhone5. (3331707)
Unable to package an application using an ANE on iOS, which doesn't not implement the finalizer function. (3321073)
Packaging fails with null pointer exception, when packaging an IPA using only the default implementation in the ANE on iOS. (3323233)
Geolocation permission dialog doesn't show up on iOS 6 device and App doesn't get listed in Settings->Privacy->Locations services. (3296870)
Database data is wiped out for every launch on iOS Simulator. (3329307)
