Adobe didn't release any source code at all. All they released was
the API specification for ActionScript, and a few other things that we
figured out years ago. I put my own versions of these documents on the
Gnash site close to 3 years ago...

Gnash, which is on the OLPC already, supports up to swf version 9,
FlashLite only supports version 7. As our ActionScript 3 class library
us still in development, I'd suggest using version 7 or 8 for the best
compatibility. Maybe someday I'll manage to get somebody to build a more
recent version of Gnash for the XO, as the version being shipped is
ancient, but there appears to be nothing I can do about it. To be
honest, I've given up paying much attention to the OLPC project thanks
to Nicholas, so good luck.
