Here is yet another release of your favourite Flash player. And it
even comes with new features!

swfdec-0.5.1 "Heeeeelium"
MD5: 073974b436afc3791a436ddd449580dd

This release can finally play embedded Youtube movies, since URL
handling got an overhaul and the Stage actionscript object got
implemented. WIth this, of course all those movies scale correctly
now. And last but not least, Swfdec got an OSS sound backend for all
those poor people still stuck on BSD.

swfdec-mozilla-0.5.1 "Kill the baby"
MD5: 173fbfc701785d7f485de1291007bff4

With the new Stage goodness, the mozilla plugin can now implement more
features from the <embed> tag. And the plugin does proper popup
blocking now.

Swfdec of course still follows the no-crashes-allowed policy. So it is
safe to install as your plugin. Should you still succeed in finding a
crasher, please immediately file a bug at
