Merative ™ Social Program Management Editor Applications update
Merative ™ Social Program Management is now Cúram ™ by Merative™
Editor_Applications_1.0.1 is released.
The Editor Applications asset that replaced the Flash-dependent editors for all Merative Social Program Management has been updated for version 8.0. This technote describes the background to the changes, provides a full description of the asset, and outlines how to download and install the asset.
For Social Program Management 7.0 versions, you must download and install two software assets, one for charts and widgets, the other for editors. For more information, see Merative Social Program Management has removed Adobe Flash dependencies in 2020.
In July 2017 Adobe announced their intention to end-of-life Flash. In a statement Adobe said:
"In collaboration with several of our technology partners, including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Mozilla, Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash. Specifically, we will stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020 and encourage content creators to migrate any existing Flash content to these new open formats."
Since that announcement, browser vendors have made it increasingly difficult for users to use Flash. Some browser vendors have announced that they will not support the Flash Player after the end of 2020.
Since 2020, the Social Program Management product has no dependency on Adobe Flash. A new asset was released that provides Adobe Air versions of the Flash-dependent editors. This asset has been updated to validate against Social Program Management version 8.0 standards.
These changes are compatible with Social Program Management version 7.0.
