                        Gnash 0.8.7 Released!

The 0.8.7 release of Gnash has just been made. Gnash is a GPLv3'd SWF
movie player and browser plugin for Firefox, all other Geeko based
browsers, Chrome, and Konqueror. Gnash supports many SWF v8 features
and ActionScript 2 classes. with growing support for SWF v10 and
ActionScript 3. Gnash also runs on many GNU/Linux distributions,
embedded GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, non x86 processors (ARM,
MIPS, PowerPC), and 64 bit architectures. There are also standalone
players for GNOME or KDE based desktops.

Improvements since the 0.8.6 release are:

 * Automatic and spontaneous screenshots support in all GUIs
 * Significant memory savings in parsing large XML trees and in
   some function calls
 * Enhancements in video streaming
 * Non blocking load of bitmaps, movies, data
 * Refactoring to eliminate most static data and get closer to
   re-entrant VM
 * Cygnal now supports multiple network connections, handling multiple
   video streams
 * Cygnal now supports plugins for server side scripting in C/C++
 * Improved packaging support for deb and rpm

See the NEWS file for more improvements.

You can grab the Gnash sources from, or from Gnash Bzr from the branch
release_0_8_7 . Binary packages for Debian or RPM based systems will be
available from your GNU/Linux distribution, and from whatever BSD
variant you are using. Experimental binary packages built by the Gnash
team are also available at, along with source
