Gnash 0.8.7 Released!

The 0.8.7 release of Gnash has just been made. Gnash is a GPLv3'd SWF movie player and browser plugin for Firefox, all other Geeko based browsers, Chrome, and Konqueror. Gnash supports many SWF v8 features and ActionScript 2 classes. with growing support for SWF v10 and ActionScript 3. Gnash also runs on many GNU/Linux distributions, embedded GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, non x86 processors (ARM, MIPS, PowerPC), and 64 bit architectures. There are also standalone players for GNOME or KDE based desktops.

Improvements since the 0.8.6 release are:

  • Automatic and spontaneous screenshots support in all GUIs
  • Significant memory savings in parsing large XML trees and in

some function calls

  • Enhancements in video streaming
  • Non blocking load of bitmaps, movies, data
  • Refactoring to eliminate most static data and get closer to

re-entrant VM

  • Cygnal now supports multiple network connections, handling multiple video streams
  • Cygnal now supports plugins for server side scripting in C/C++
  • Improved packaging support for deb and rpm

See the NEWS file for more improvements.

You can grab the Gnash sources from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/gnash/0.8.7, or from Gnash Bzr from the branch release_0_8_7 . Binary packages for Debian or RPM based systems will be available from your GNU/Linux distribution, and from whatever BSD variant you are using. Experimental binary packages built by the Gnash team are also available at http://www.getgnash.org, along with source snapshots.
