End of Adobe Flash support

Adobe just announced that Adobe Flash support will end on December 31, 2020.
In the mean time, browsers will be gradually putting more restrictions on Flash.
This will be interesting for legacy Scratch support. 0.x-1.4 will still work but 2 will be fairly unusable (unless you want to use a highly vulnerable, out-of-support software ).
Discuss!

Probably. But it will last longer (I think).

Scratch will probably be fine because Scratch 3.0 doesn't require Flash–I think the Scratch 2 mods may be hit the worst, as well as the people who want to run old versions. But the Flash game websites will be hit HARD!

We should see if Adobe will sell us Flash after they are done with it so we can mess it up even more.

I really hope Adobe at the very least releases the source code for the Flash plugin a reasonable time before it is entirely deprecated, so we can Emscripten it to WebAssembly to play old Flash games.
