Just a quick note to announce that Lightspark 0.4.8 has been released! The main difference from the RC1 is that a nasty memory allocation bug has been fixed, greatly reducing the amount of memory used when playing video. This release of the free, high performance, flash player implementation officially supports YouTube (as usual) and Vimeo (new entry!) You can find the code on Launchpad. Testing and bug reporting is extremely welcome. You can also usually find (friendly) support on the #lightspark IRC channel on FreeNode. As a last note, a regression of the NVIDIA proprietary driver forced me to start using nouveau and, although I was fairly skeptic, I’m pretty happy so far. This of course means lightspark will be finally developed and tested throughly on a completely free stack!
