Is BBO planning to provide an updated version of BBO that does not use Flash player?
As per following link, the Adobe Flash player has reached end of life and is no longer being supported including browsers.
https://www.adobe.co...nd-of-life.html

Please advise if a new version of BBO is going to be released by when that uses a different technology other than Flash (i.e. HTML5, Java, etc).

It's already here https://www.bridgebase.com/v3/ however it's incredibly slow, clunking, freezes and is pretty useless by comparison to the Flash version.
Please see my other 2 posts on the subject.

The non-Flash version has been available for several years.

So has the list of its regressions versus the Flash version.
Although I have only seen it freeze occasionally on Android and I don't find it slow as a player (but then I dislike Robots and insta-play opponents anyway).
