The good news it seems is that Adobe have stated they will continue to support "Televesion" Flash support which hopefully Boxee falls under although I do wonder if it does.
Flash for linux PC is not dead as long as the web browser in question supports Google's Pepper API, I think there is some crossover here with the linux OS that underpins Boxee so if Boxee can support that there is a chance Adobe may provide an updated version sooner rather than later.We are firmly committed to the television space and will continue to optimize our technology for TV hardware that enables great video and gaming experiences.
While we have historically licensed Flash Player for general web browsing on TVs , we do not recommend this approach given the difficultly of ensuring consistent and high-quality “full web” browsing on TV hardware.
Non Pepper linux PC platforms will be frozen at 11.2 with security updates.
Oh and further complicating matters HTML5 DRM video is going nowhere.
I see ABC and Xfinitytv.com have updated their players to flash 11 and no longer playable through boxee.
Honestly, there's no network TV content out there today that actually requires Flash to view - you just have to watch via a different source.
Manta TR1 IR Receiver for Boxee and HTPC - Use your Universal Remote with Boxee Box or XBMC HTPC, including Raspberry Pi
Also for Windows, Linux & Mac OS X: Windows Media Center, SageTV, JRiver Media Center, MediaPortal, XBMC, Plex, MythTV, etc.
This whole Adobe flash issue is killing the usability of the BB for me. I stated it in another thread, but Boxee created a device that is dependent on Flash to view a great deal of current content. It really is Boxee's responsibility to find a solution, even if it might mean bringing in somebody that can write the required code that Adobe refuses to do. They created their own means of going obsolete in short order by making the BB so dependent on other company's work.
As of now, watching TV episodes with Boxee Box is pretty much dead functionality. No cutting the cable with this device anymore. I'm using it strictly as a means of watching movies now via Navi-X, or bittorrenting a movie and viewing from a local hard disk storage. I could have just recycled an old PC with XBMC and Hulu desktop app and have more functions now.
