Syllable, AtheOS Kelly Wilson ported the Gnash Flash player clone to Syllable [screenshot], enabling the playing of Adobe Flash content. It uses the Boost C++ libraries, the SDL and Anti-Grain Geometry libraries for graphics rendering and FFMPEG for multimedia decoding. Work on the player is continuing to add the FreeType library and make the player native to Syllable, so it can be integrated in the web browser. Also, on some Adobe Flash news, an upcoming update will be supporting native h.264 videos, HE-AAC audio support, as well as hardware accelerated, multi-core enhanced full screen video playback.

Furthermore, I hope web browsers will be more strict in interpreting HTML content, say, displaying nice errors or nothing if a web page does not contain valid HTML. This would force the providers / authors of the web pages to use HTML as it is intended and recommended. Just test your (or the average user's) favourite web pages using the W3C's validator... surprise surprise... :-)


They already do that -- if the webserver sends them as "application/xhtml+xml" rather than "text/html". Unsurprisingly, only one browser is incapable of displaying webpages using this MIMEtype.
