Not as far as I know.

There is a rough implementation of ExternalInterface, but it needs work.
Above all, I don't think custom callbacks are implemented, though if the
host-to-gnash communication works as it supposedly does, this shouldn't
be too hard.

Any testcases you have for ExternalInterface behaviour would be very
useful to test gnash. It's hard for us to do automatically as it only
functions in the flash plugin, not the standalone player.

Free Flash, use Gnash
