Thanks for the reply and all the work you put into the wiki.

FlashPlayer supports ActionScript which is used to create web apps
from Wikipedia - "Later versions added functionality allowing for the creation of Web-based games and rich Internet applications with streaming media (such as video and audio). Today, ActionScript is suitable for use in some database applications, and in basic robotics, as with the Make Controller Kit."

I've removed the link to version 11.2r202, I thought that was the latest version. I see is the current version. I'm thought the PPM would have the latest version too, but that is even more out of date.

I've shrunk the icon down using height="48"
