otte at gnome.org
Thu Nov 15 02:51:41 PST 2007
here's a new release of the Swfdec packages.
swfdec-0.5.4 "2 advanced"
swfdec-mozilla 0.5.4 "Ultravibe Pleasure 2000"
swfdec-gnome-0.5.4 "Turkish Cycling Federation"
This release brings lots of new features, most notably support for
TextFields and loading of other movie clips, JPEG or PNG images.
Another notable addition is support for exception handling and
inheritance Actionscript code.
Of interest to users might be the addition of the swfdec-gnome
package, which integrates Flash into the GNOME desktop by providing a
thumbnailer and a standalone player application.
Packagers will be interested in the slightly changed requirements for
Swfdec. In particular, GStreamer is now the only audio/video backend
enabled by default. And the mozilla plugin may not be moved from its
installation directory anymore.
Swfdec still follows the no-crashes-allowed policy. Should you still
succeed in finding a crasher, please immediately file a bug at
