Improvements since the 0.8.0 alpha release are:
* New Garbage Collector, which reduces runtime memory.
Gnash supports the majority of Flash opcodes up to SWF version 7, and a wide sampling of ActionScript 2 classes for SWF version 8.5. Flash version 9 and ActionScript 3 support is being worked on. All the core ones are implemented, and many of the newer ones work, but may be missing some of their methods. If the browser only displays a blank window, it is likely because of an unimplemented feature. All unimplemented opcodes and ActionScript classes and methods print a warning when using -v with gnash or gprocessor. Using gprocessor -v is a quick way to see why a movie isn't playing correctly.
You can grab the Gnash sources from ftp://ftp.gnu.org/pub/gnu/gnash/0.8.1, or from Gnash CVS with the tag "release_0_8_1_final". Binary packages for Debian or RPM based systems will be available from your GNU/Linux distribution, and from whatever BSD variant you are using. Please report packaging bugs upstream to your distribution. If you think you have found a bug in Gnash, then you should file as complete a report as possible at https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group=gnash. Patches are always preferred to bug reports, as this is a community project. You can submit patches at https://savannah.gnu.org/patch/?group=gnash, or email them to email@example.com. As heavy bug fixing and development is going on, please make sure your bug still exists in cvs HEAD before reporting.
Please include the operating system name and version, compiler
