Adobe Connect 11.2 Release Notes

Adobe Connect is about to get faster, smarter, and younger with the upcoming Adobe Connect 12 upgrade, scheduled for Spring, 2022.

With this new upgrade, Adobe Connect’s legacy, the Flash-based Classic View will reach its end-of-life. Customers will no longer be able to host or join Adobe Connect sessions using the Classic View.

If you haven’t transitioned your Flash-based content and rooms to the HTML-based Standard View, then now would be the right time , ahead of Adobe Connect 12 release.

For more information, see Adobe Connect Classic View End of Life (EOL).
