Interesting, the default download links that Adobe provides on their web page is still serving the .101 release:

It's probably a CDN thing; I just tried the link for the ActiveX setup here (UTC+02:00) and it correctly fetched the 32.0.0.114 version; content on their US distribution servers (UTC-08:00 to UTC-05:00) will update soon, methinks... ;)

I'm using (hand-installed) 192 quite happily, ATM. Why shouldn't I?

Of course, you can use it. But makes no sense if you need not the new functions built in.

Oracle always republished two versions at the same time.
Oracle itself has repeatedly pointed out that the use of the higher version number can be associated with additional problems, as new features have been released again and again with the higher version. Therefore, as a matter of principle, only the security updates (lower version number) should be installed in order to avoid new problems, including new security vulnerabilities.

Possible that you close a door an have open two others...

I recollect posting this before, but for people reading this latest discussion about JRE 8u191 (CPU release) vs JRE 8u192 (PSU release):

and from there: https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/cpu-psu-explained-2331472.html

Quote

Which Java version should I choose: the CPU or the PSU?

Oracle strongly recommends that all Java SE users upgrade to the latest CPU release available for a release family. Most users should choose the CPU release.

You are then, of course, free to make your own individual choice... ;)

I'm not sure if it has been addressed anywhere, but if you overwrite the contents of the Java 8 Update 152 folder with the contents of Java 8 Update 191, it completely fails in Internet Explorer 8. The runtime doesn't even appear.

The Java runtime works successfully if you rollback to Java 8 Update 152. (http://sdfox7.com/xp/sp3/EOL/jre-8u152-windows-i586.exe)

Just a guess; but I would assume one should use "odd with odd" and "even with even" since the releases apparently have slightly different functionality. :unsure:

Try Update 191 with a 151 install, and Update 192 with a 152 install. If these work you could then try Update 192 with a 151 install, and if it fails then it would confirm my suspicion.

There was a new version of Shockwave Player 12.3.3.203 released on or around May 22, 2018.

...

I realize this is several months late, but Shockwave for Director 12.3.4.204 was released on June 6, 2018. I just found out!

Edit: Here's the download link. http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/shockwave/default/english/win95nt/latest/sw_lic_full_installer.exe

FWIW there has been a rather unexpected update to Silverlight!
It's now 5.1.50918.0.
It's just an update for the Japanese calendar change.
I was offered it on Windows 10, and downloaded the installer and manually installed it on XP, so I don't know whether MS Update is offering it on POSReady hacked XP or not.

I just got it from here -
https://www.microsoft.com/silverlight/
I assume it's the same file!

It is - if you spoofed 32-bit Win 7 or later in your browser's user agent string. (Actually, spoofing a 32-bit browser on 64-bit Windows would probably work too, but I didn't try that.)

Vista and XP are offered older versions. 64-bit Win 7 is offered a 64-bit version, of course.

BTW, on Firefox or its derivatives (NM/Serpent/MyPal/Seamonkey/etc.), make sure to use/spoof version 52, since later versions don't permit any plug-ins besides Flash.

Edit: BTW, does anyone know of a good Silverlight test page (other than Amazon Prime)?
