And here is yet another release on the steady road to a great Free Flash

swfdec-0.4.2 "Two completely different numbers"
MD5: 851b8891299b68f84dc731441188b261

The major change in this release is switching from compiled to interpreted
Actionscript bytecode. This gives better conformance for different Flash
versions, more supported bytecodes and improved stability. Another big
plus is the improved image rendering. Swfdec renders lots of Ad banners
right now. You decide if this is a plus.

swfdec-mozilla-0.4.2 "Kill animals, or else they'll die!"
MD5: 55de4eb6d2b7820c56eac3520c8f1734

Yay, new features. The Mozilla plugin now makes use of Gtk and as such can
display a right click menu for your Flash file. And a properties page has
been added that allows you to save your Flash file for later watching. Now
that's a feature that you don't get from every Flash plugin.

Of course, this is still a development release. But I'm actually confident
in using it on my regular browser and letting it loose on all the weird
files my browsing habits throw at it.
