First experimental Lightspark for PowerPC available
Lightspark stand­alone exe­cut­ing YouTube on a ppc64 Debian machine
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 <strong>exper­i­men­tal sup­port for the PPC plat­form</strong>!
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:
<li>A fix to restore YouTube support</li>
<li>A new <strong>AMF3</strong> parser that will be used to pro­vide <strong>Local Shared Object</strong> (flash cook­ies) sup­port in a fol­low­ing release.</li>
Pack­ages will be as usu­ally avail­able for Ubuntu Mav­er­ick from the
for the i386 and amd64 archi­tec­ture. Pack­ages for PPC are not cur­rently avail­able as launch­pad does not sup­port ppc pack­ages.
