For Swfdec the Flash playe it means pretty much nothing. Swfdec
already implements everything that is written down in that
specifications. This is just the Adobe version of
http://www.m2osw.com/swf_alexref.html - so no wonders are to be

For Swfdec the project it's nice that people will stop asking "Did you
read the forbidden specs? Are you sure what you're doing is legal?"
Even though these where pretty much non-issues before. It also means
we now have a document to show newcomers that want to hack on Swfdec.
It seems nicer as an introduction text than the link above.

The interesting question is what this will mean for Adobe. But that's
not something that I know the answer for.
