Linux players can only play Flash Player 11.2 so I was going to export in 11.2.

Is there any major benefits, perhaps to speed / performance if I exported to Flash Player 14?

Do you guys export to Flash Player 14? Should I say screw the Linux players?

I do 11.2, never bothered updating or changing anyway.

11.2 is solid - you have right click, in 11.3 you get fullscreen interactive .. You can check developer release notes: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/flash-player-releasenotes.html

There won't be any significant performance improvements imo, i always stick to the lowest possible version, depending on what's used in the game.

Yeah, 11.2 was the last stable build I've heard about. We've run into several problems with devs targeting newer than that.

Stage3D "standard" profile was added in FP 14; a major enhancement for 3D but it won't affect traditional/2D APIs.

last useful thing I've noticed was 11.3 or 11.4 - it was comeback of releaseoutside event or one of the similar from as2. I think it's more important to keep AIR up to date.
