Gnash 0.8.8 GNU Flash player released
Six months after the 0.8.7 update arrived, the Gnash development team have released version 0.8.8 of their open source Flash Player. According to the developers, the latest version of the SWF player should work with "100% of all YouTube videos" – users that encounter problems with videos are advised to delete all of their YouTube cookies and refresh.
Gnash can be run as a standalone player or as a plug-in for the Firefox, Mozilla and Konquerer web browsers. It runs on a number of Linux distributions, including Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), and supports various non-x86 and 64-bit processors.
More details about the release can be found in a post on the Gnash Project blog. Gnash 0.8.8 binaries and source code are available to download from the project's getgnash.org site. Gnash is licensed under version 3 of the GNU General Public License (GPLv3) .
