Not right now! 0.9.11 is not a bugfix release, it's a major refactoring! 
So at present it's not really anything new.

Perhaps this should really be 0.10.0 (due to such a massive change) but 
I'm not really sure of Lennart's thoughts on version number and in 
actual fact it really doesn't matter much in the overal scheme of things 
(tho it may have scared you off a bit of it was 0.10.0!).

I'm guessing that a 0.10.x release will only be introduced when it 
breaks backwards compatibility (which 0.9.11 in theory will not do!).

I presume you are using libflashsupport right?

Seems to work OK for me here on both 0.9.10 and on 0.9.11...
