Phoronix: Lightspark Open Flash Now Works On Windows
There's a new release of the open-source Lightspark software for handling Adobe SWF/Flash support on the Linux desktop. New to Lightspark 0.5.3 among other changes is a working Microsoft Windows port...
Anyone care to share their experience with the new version? What websites work reliably and which ones don't?
Based on past experiences, you only need the first list and it's going to be a short one.
It's a promising project, very impressive technically. But it's developed by just one man and it doesn't implement the latest ActionScript versions. Yet.
it doesn't implement the latest ActionScript versions. Yet.
AFAIK, the problem is exactly the opposite: it only supports the latest ActionScript version, because the old versions target a different VM that is kind of messy and not really specified as a coherent entity (i.e. it just grew as they added various "actions" to each SWF version).
