Gnash is an open source GNU Flash player. On Sunday, Gnash developers released version 0.8.8.

Gnash is compatible with the Adobe Flash player. It runs on GNU/Linux, embedded GNU + Linux systems, and BSD, including x86, ARM, MIPS, PowerPC and 64-bit systems. It includes a standalone player as well as a browser plugin for Firefox, Chrome, Konqueror and all Gecko-based browsers.

Improvements include:
* 100% of all YouTube videos should work. If you have problems, delete all YouTube cookies and refresh.
* Gnash can switch at runtime between the Cairo, OpenGL, and AGG renderers.
* Gnash can switch media handlers at runtime, too, between FFmpeg and Gstreamer.
* Gnash can now decode video quickly on hardware compatible with the VAAPI library (a few NVidia, ATI, and Intel graphics processors).
* Gnash now compiles faster due to reduced internal dependencies.
* Scriptable Plugin support so Javascript in the browser can work with ActionScript in Gnash.
* Improved input device handling when using a raw framebuffer.
