Some Flash questions that need to be answer.
All this week, a lot of websites and blogs have made public the security hole in the Flash Player version previous to v.6.0r65. I can't remeber how many updates the Flash Player 5 had (maye 2 or 3) but Flash Player 6 has overcome that number. It would like to thank the Macromedia people for their effort in fixing this flaws but I think there is one thing still to be solved: the auto-update support for the Player and the Authoring tool.

With these updates, everybody who is developing Flash content has to make sure that his clients and audience has the lastest built and this mean a pain for clients. They ask: "Why I have to update it so many times?" and so on.

What I want to know is why the Flash Player doesn't have an auto-update option like Real Player plug-in, the Windows Media Player, etc... which tells you when a new Player built is available. I don't know if this option will increase a lot the Player download size but it will keep all the user up.to date with the lastest Player and it will solve many doubts that people have about the plater.

Another question is why the authoring tool has also an auto-update feature built in so we can update the Documentation and the Authoring and Debugging players via the Answers panel.

If you know the answers to these questions, please post a comment. I think it will be very useful to the community.
