Today has been published the first release candidate of Lightspark 0.4.3. Source tarballs are available as usual from launchpad. Prebuild packages for Ubuntu Lucid and Maverick are available from the PPA as usual.
The new features in this release are
- Faster rendering
- Reduced memory consumption
- Support for H263/MP3 video (using FFmpeg)
- Smoother audio and video playback
Be sure to try this out and report bugs in launchpad and our irc channel (irc://irc.freenode.org/lightspark). Users of radeon cards (and the open source radeon driver) are especially invited to try lightspark. Many radeon users complained about crashes and weird renderings which are often caused by missing features in the drivers. It would be nice to gather as much information as possible on working/non working cards to open a unique bug report upstream.
