Multimedia, AV The fourth alpha release of Gnash has just been made at version 0.8.1. Gnash is a GPL'd Flash movie player and browser plugin for Firefox, Mozilla, Konqueror, and Opera. Gnash supports many SWF v7 features and ActionScript2 classes. Gnash also runs on many GNU/Linux distributions, embedded GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, non x86 processors, and 64 bit architectures. Ports to Darwin and Windows are in progress for a future release. The plugin works best with Firefox 1.0.4 or newer, and should work in any Mozilla based browser. There is also a standalone player for GNOME or KDE based desktops.

I'm using it on a amd64 freebsd box and have noticed great improvements over the past year. When I visited certain sites I used to see these thumbnails which said I had to have the acrobat plugin.

Nowadays gnash shows me the pictures and at certain sites (www.sky-europe.com for instance), I can even see the animations.

Youtube is still on bridge too far, but I'm sure they will be able to take that last hurdle.

Keep up the good work gnash developers.

A happy Freebsd amd64 user.
