What’s New

The user interface has been rewritten in HTML5. Previously, applications in SAS 9.4 - and many SAS solutions that are based on SAS 9.3 and SAS 9.4 - used the Adobe Flash Player to provide interactive user interfaces. Adobe announced that it intends to end support for Flash technology and will cease to update and distribute the Flash Player at the end of 2020. Browser vendors will disable Flash by default in 2019.
