The only known workaround that may work is to use Google Chrome (not 
Chromium), since Chrome uses the newest releases of Flash.  I have been 
reading about this and Adobe are no longer developing Flash 11.2 series 
for other web browsers in Linux.  Could PC-BSD have the newest Chrome 
releases available in the AppCafe?
