A couple of things I believe I noticed about these latest Flash updates (but I'd be very happy if anyone cares to confirm or contradict):
1) Even if you download the 64-bit version, the filename now contains "x32".
2) Even if you install the 64-bit version, your Programs and Features list no longer includes "64-bit" after Adobe Flash Player 11 ActiveX and/or Plugin.
Although the 64-bit version had included the 32-bit version for a few previous versions, these two changes had me thinking I'd downloaded and installed an incorrect version.
(I guess the evolution is reaching a more logical and simple pattern, but the names required have changed from 32-bit and 64-bit, to 64-bit only, to "bitless" within a few months.)
