Gnash and Lightspark?
« on: July 18, 2015, 05:23:02 pm »

I have been making some inquiries regarding Linux alternatives to replace Flash player, and I have come across references to both Lightspark, and Gnash, so my question therefore is - Will there be packages in the repositories for them, and if so, when?

The official replacement for Flash is going to be HTML5. Flash is nearly dead. It needs to go away, and there's no sense in recreating the wheel for it.
