I don’t know if anyone has noticed, but Adobe’s Flash Player Version Penetration stats page is still stuck showing statistics for June 2008. Considering the previous versions of the survey, the next update would have a column for September, and according to my not-so-empirical analysis of archived versions of the page, Adobe’s website would usually update with new information the same month of the column, or the following month tops; we’re already on November, however, and there’s no update for September so far.
Adobe may have just delayed the survey for one month – they did so in 2006, for example, when there was no March 2006 survey, but an April 2006 one (shortly before dumping NPD in favor of Millward Brown, by the way). Or maybe there’s something else, like a change in methodology or a delay so that some early Flash 10 penetration can be included. All my own speculation, though, as I can’t think of any real reason for such a delay.
Update: The stats page has been update with numbers for September. Thanks Adobe.
