Adobe announcement on the download site.

"NOTE: Adobe Flash Player 11.2 will be the last version to target Linux as a supported platform. Adobe will continue to provide security backports to Flash Player 11.2 for Linux."

Has Adobe threatened this before?

Any Ubuntu official substitutes in the works? [Will check Flash tag for alternatives, but thought I should raise a flag.]

Unfortunately as long as Adobe holds copyright and patents[?] we are in the soup, so to speak. – user272643 Jul 2 '15 at 4:31
  • Thank you, I will look and ask if needed there. Although It is sort of a situation related to not just to Linux but all three: Ubuntu, Linux, and Firefox. – user272643 Jul 2 '15 at 4:51
