finally, only 3 months late, here is the first release of Swfdec's
unstable 0.7 series.
Swfdec is a decoder/renderer for Adobe Flash animations. It is
provided as a library and a set of tools, like the Mozilla browser
swfdec-0.7.2 "Rock You"
The most visible new thing in Swfdec is the ability to enter text in
text fields and the fact that pushing the fullscreen button on Youtube
will give you a full screen video. But most work was spent on the
debugging framework and script interpretation conformance. See the
NEWS file for more details.
swfdec-mozilla-0.7.2 "Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?"
The mozilla plugin saw some long-requested features. It now remembers
which files the user clicked on to play them and autoplays them the
next time. Also, it is the first plugin to support windowless mode on
Linux, so all stacking problems should now be a thing of the past.
However, the windowless mode is not yet perfect and can cause problems
with Mozilla-based browsers. We are working on it.
Even though this is a development release, Swfdec still follows the
no-crashes-allowed policy. Should you still succeed in finding a
crasher, please immediately file a bug at
