Only a few days have passed since the 0.4.5 and a new Lightspark release is already out! With big news for PowerPC users. The main new feature of this release is experimental support for the PPC platform!
Currently the performance of the video playback is far from ideal as some very inefficient code is used on a critical path, and will be rewritten in an efficient manner. Nonetheless tests and bug reports from PowerPC users are very welcome.
Beside this feature the release include:
- A fix to restore YouTube support
- A new AMF3 parser that will be used to provide Local Shared Object (flash cookies) support in a following release.
Packages will be as usually available for Ubuntu Maverick from the PPA for the i386 and amd64 architecture. Packages for PPC are not currently available as launchpad does not support ppc packages.
