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.

Large parts of Glib are simply unnecessary, having been superseded by things like C99 or simply duplicate existing standards (GThread: use PThreads!). The bits that remain are often used incorrectly. The original idea behind Glib was that a project should copy in the parts they required, but these days Glib is treated like an extended libc where projects link against the DSO.

I just don't like Glib. I never have. It may be partially irrational, but my hatred is based on some good reasons. ;)
