Hello all,

   I would like to try out the latest gnash firefox plugin, but there
does not seem to be anything pre-compiled available for download. I'm
using an older release of ubuntu which only ships with a very old
version of gnash (0.8.7) and I understand newer versions are much

Adobe Flash has always made available a simple .so file for download
which you just stick in your mozilla/plugins folder and it just works,
regardless of your linux distro. Why can't gnash do something similar?
I think this would encourage many more people to give it a try if you
provided a .so file which just works.
If you'd request an official backport from precise to lucid [1], I'd be
happy to process it if you're willing to test it.  I've been wanting to
SRU [2] it for a while, but haven't done the paperwork or the testing.
