Flash plugin, status update from Mensys...

November 26, 2008 by Roderick Klein

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service ++

From: Roderick Klein

After 5 attemtempts in total with first Macromedia and now Adobe I
suceeded! Mensys has received permission from Adobe to distribute the
Windows Flash with eCS. Without going into legal details and patents.
Using the Windows binary makes the best legal and financial sense.

But before people ask, where is a release ?

1. There is no timeline yet for any release, so for now. Its going to at
least take something like I expect half a year before we can say more.

2. There are some technical problems. There is a "leaked" version of the
Flash 7 plugin with the Innotek runtime. Innotek has not been able to
release this source code to
the public in a timely fashion before they where taken over by SUN. So
there will be code that needs to be rewritten. The ODIN project is a start
for this.
This will be a complex effort!!

Just to clearly state this again! This is a first step but the legal block
is gone now! The writing the code to run the Flash DLL is next big step!!!!

But a step taken to another project to keep eCS on track!
