Open source Flash, Gnash, getting closer

Gnash 0.8

A new version (0.8) of the open source version of the popular Flash plugin, Gnash has been released.

According to the release notes, the most notable improvement in this release is without a doubt the added support for YouTube and Lulu.tv streaming videos which show how this implementation has matured during its first 18 months.

Unfortunately there are no binary versions of the plugin or the stand alone player that I could test. The screen shot above, courtesy of Wikipedia, shows the stand alone player running on Ubuntu.
