Lightspark news

with 2 comments

Lightspark, the modern and efficient open source Flash player, just landed in experimental!

Few days have passed since 0.4.2 release, and thanks to the great packaging efforts made by Didier Raboud, package is ready to be widely tested.

Don’t expect a fully functional Flash player, though. Some features aren’t implemented yet, and it’s still buggy, but it looks very promising. Stay tuned for updates!

  1. That’s terrific, I’d love to get rid of Adobe’s Flashplayer.

    Asking from absolute ignorance: do you know what’s going to happen with gnash?

  2. @Debianero: It’ll continue to exist, to support Flash versions 8 and older, and older versions of ActionScript. Lightspark *only* handles Flash 9 with ActionScript 3.
