Hey OLPC team.

No, really, is there any chance OLPC can ship Gnash 0.8.4 with XO OS
final 8.2.0?

I tend to agree with Russ, It'll hurt more to ship Gnash 0.8.3 with
8.2.0 than Gnash 0.8.4 RC1.

Latest Gnash trunk is at
http://gnashdev.org/dev_snapshots/gnash-trunk-9980.tar.tgz and it'll
go final from RC in a few hours.

Given the amount of Flash/Gnash support inquiries there are, maybe
it's worth it to try to get latest Gnash in there (with a possible 1-2
day delay) before shipping?

It wouldn't hurt for you to include this snapshot in your release as a
gnash 0.8.4-rc1.  It WOULD hurt for you to include 0.8.3 because it
doesn't play YouTube.  Unless we find a strong reason not to, we'll do
a release tomorrow (about 28 hours from now).

We're expecting to do a new release of Gnash within a couple of days.
Please fetch and compile <a
">gnash-trunk-9980</a> as it is very likely to be the release.
