PySwfdec 0.4.4       (Apr 30 2007)

 o First public release (Gian Mario)


Swfdec [1] is the library for decoding and rendering Flash animations.
It is still in heavy development. The intended audience are developers or people
using it for pretested Flash animations (think embedded here). If you use it on
unknown content, expect it to have issues and don't be surprised if it crashes.
If you encounter such a crash however, make sure to file a bug [2] immediately.

PySwfdec is a wrapper which exposes the Swfdec API to the
python world.  It is fairly complete; most of the API are covered.

The documentation is a work in progress, needs quite a lot of work in
order to cover 100% of the API, anyway help will be greatly appreciated.

Like the GTK+ library, PyGTK and Swfdec itself PySwfdec is
licensed under  the GNU LGPL, so is suitable for use in both
free software and proprietary applications.

PySwfdec requires:

 o Swfdec = 0.4.4
 o PyGObject >= 2.10.1 (2.11.3 to build the docs)
 o PyGTK >= 2.10.4

Bug reports should go to
