Is there a new adobe-flash available?
I don't see one yet. Normally, they come out on the second Tuesday of the month. Is there an emergency update? :confused:

According to this, 32.0.0.223 is still current: https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/

Other packages: Krita 4.2.5 for MX 19

scrcpy 1.9 for MX-19 (scratch build)
This is the app that mirrors your android phone on the desktop & lets you control it with mouse & keyboard.

It was slightly odd to build because it requires Android Studio. Perfectly fine to build with that & distribute the results, but not OK to package Android Studio itself. Thus debian/control lists it commented out.
Because it can be tricky to use (the phone must be in developer mode with USB debugging enabled) and there are a lot of possible cli options I'm starting it in a terminal for the feedback and options, have converted the four markdown documentation files into html and given those docs their own launcher.

But it is very cool to use when you get it running.
Android Studio 181 is in the test repo.

Well, sort of. We aren't allowed to package it.

The android-studio deb has no source code in it. It has the dependencies info and a postinst script that downloads and runs the official installer for Android Studio interactively so the user can agree to the terms as the license requires.

Ah, I see. The package installs needed dependencies then runs their own installer.

BTW I'm looking forward to that scrcpy app. I have a devil of a time texting on the phone's touchscreen keyboard. It would be nice to be able to use my computer's keyboard instead.

Webkit2gtk 2.24.3 for MX 17/18.

Edit: that went a lot faster than I thought it would, so am doing the MX 19 packages now.
