This edition of the Mac Update report includes new features in Flash Player, a big MacFamilyTree refresh (iCloud!) and better playlist support in Sonos

What’s new in the world software? This Thursday iteration of the Mac Update report includes fresh features in Flash Player, a big-time MacFamilyTree refresh (iCloud!) and improved playlist support for Sonos.

• Flash Player 11.8b (download)
— Sandboxing enhancements — This feature adds enhancements to the existing sandbox feature by better addressing application launches in protected mode
— Recursive stop on MovieClip — For Flash Player, this feature allows a game developer to effectively pause/stop a running SWF without having to iterate through all of the objects on the DisplayList.
— 4096×4096 texture support — With this feature, a new profile, BASELINE_EXTENDED is introduced in the class flash.display3D.Context3DProfile, which will support a maximum texture size of 4096X4096.
— Rectangle Texture Support — Rectangle Textures are now supported in BASELINE as well as BASELINE_EXTENDED profile. The texture formats supported for Rectangle Textures are BGRA, BGR_PACKED and BGRA_PACKED. Details for usage can be found in the language reference.
— Additional Android and Windows specific features and issues

Initial report erroneously stated 11.8 had been released — it’s actually a beta. Apologies for any confusion.
