Swfdec 0.7.2 has been released

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 plugin.

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.

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 https://bugs.freedesktop.org.
