we managed to hit the Gnome 2.21.4 deadline! Here's a new Swfdec
release for your enjoyment.

swfdec-0.5.5 "cps"
MD5; b988b014e210cee205aeccaca4d6a9a7

swfdec-mozilla-0.5.5 "Reading is lame"
MD5: 37d2b4235dd8c66de8f9ebd323aa6b1e

swfdec-gnome-0.5.5 "Banks Peninsula Track"
MD5: 418ca1cc4adf6ceb7f8bcf29cc51fea7

This release is somewhat exciting for us, because a lot of users
mailed in telling us that various video playback services work or
almost work, like the new player Youtube uses for embedded videos,
DailyMotion, Yahoo, CNN, AOL and various others. So let's hope they
work for you, too.
While the users were busy watching videos, the developers did an input
rewrite, so if you previously couldn't click things in Swfdec, there's
a good chance you can do now. For example the seek bar in Youtube
works now.

Swfdec still follows the no-crashes-allowed policy. Should you still
succeed in finding a crasher, please immediately file a bug at
