Open Source Flash Player Lightspark 0.4.4

by Developer.com Staff

Open source Flash player, Lightspark, is developing quickly. This week, version 0.4.4 hit the Web and the next release is right on its heals.

A new version of the open source Flash player, Lightspark 0.4.4, is now available for download.

This latest version of Lightspark offers localization support using gettext, ActionScript execution handling, improved network handling and stream control for play, pause and stop.

"It should be noted that, although now video streams con­trols are sup­ported they'll be not usable in most YouTube videos as mouse event dis­patch­ing to con­trols is still clob­bered by miss­ing mask­ing support," Lightspark developer Alessandro Pignotti said.

Lightspark is developing quickly and the next version is expected to feature an Advanced Graphics Engine.
