One of the reasons we don't support a plugin for Win32 is that it doesn't use X11. As for the NATIVE Mac OS X support me and (mostly now) Bastiaan are working slowly but steady on it. you can still use gnash under OS X ;)

I'd like to add to the request for a regular Win32 build. I do a quite a
bit of Flash development for a living, mostly on a Windows XP machine
(my work machine) and Mac (my coworkers' machines). Although I am a
happy Ubuntu user at home, I simply don't have to time to work regular
testing on Ubuntu with Gnash into my work process. It would be great to have a Windows build of the player (in plugin form or standalone) that I
could use for regular testing during normal Flash development.

In addition though, it would be great if there was a way to install both the Flash Player and Gnash at the same time, without having them compete over which gets to be the default player for swf files. In other words,
it'd be great if there was a mode that would allow Gnash to only play
what developers want it to play, through markup, or some kind of easy
way to configure it, or turn it on and off (even if that means a special
development version only - I'm not suggesting you change your strategy
for final distribution).

There's my 2 cents. :-)

I just downloaded the 0.8.1 Win32 port of Gnash, and I couldn't
identify the advertised Mozilla Firefox browser plugin.  In
conversation on freenode's #gnash channel, the response I got was, and
I quote (anonymously), "we don't support win32 builds ourselves".  So
I'm wondering if someone has a plugin DLL for Firefox 2 on Windows XP
that my company can use.  We'd likely use it in a XULRunner 1.8
application (which has the same code base as Firefox 2).

If the plugin requires Firefox 3 beta 1, that's fine too.
