Swfdec 0.4.4 is out
Posted on: 04/27/2007 04:19 PM
My enthusiasm got a bit reduced after the last release, but it hasn't vanished. So here is the new release.
swfdec-0.4.4 "Birthday cards"http://swfdec.freedesktop.org/download/swfdec/0.4/swfdec-0.4.4.tar.gz
swfdec-mozilla-0.4.4 "The death camp of tolerance"http://swfdec.freedesktop.org/download/swfdec/0.4/swfdec-mozilla-0.4.4.tar.gz
This release is not really supporting more Flash files. It has focused on stability and features developers asked for. The big changes are support for decoding using GStreamer, a new libswfdec-gtk for easy embedding of Flash files in your application and cleaning up the API for easier bindings creation.
Swfdec still is development software, but has also followed a rigid no-crashes-allowed policy. I believe it's stable enough now to be installed as a default plugin in your browser. Don't expect Flash files to work, but expect the plugin to not crash. If it does, file a bug at https://bugs.freedesktop.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=swfdec
