Adobe has made good on its promises today by updating its Flash for Android client to support Android 4.0. The update brings Flash to 188.8.131.52 and doesn't change functionality at all beyond simply including support necessary for 4.0. If you haven't been following Adobe and Flash lately, Adobe recently announced that it will discontinue developing Flash past 11.1 on mobile platforms, making ICS the last version of Android to include the plugin.
Adobe has a full rundown on the changes on their website, but there isn't much to note with respect to this version bump beyond a few known issues and ICS support.

tayb - Friday, December 16, 2011 - linkFlash sucks 99% of the time but for that 1% I am forced to download and re-install the application and then uninstall again when I'm done. It sure would be nice if there was an easy way to disable flash and reenable it on demand without having to uninstall and reinstall the app.
UpSpin - Saturday, December 17, 2011 - linkYou can do that in every web browser.
With the stock Android browser go to the settings, and there plug-ins, and then you can select to activate, deactivate, or on demand.
With Opera mobile go to settings, and search for Adobe Flash, you can change the behaviour, too.
All other browsers should support it, too.
So yes, you can do your request already.
kmmatney - Sunday, December 18, 2011 - linkSo, does this means Apple won out on the Flash debate? I assume that Adobe will still make plenty of money making development tools for HTML5, and targeting HTML5 versus a lot of independent platforms makes more sense.
tayb - Monday, December 26, 2011 - linkAndroid more or less forced it. Having to develop that app for the endless amounts of Android phones probably started to get too pricey for Adobe. In the end it was a lost cause because despite what some people cling to flash is not the way of the future.
