Flash Bounty Started
Stephen B. - February 23rd, 2009

According to an announcement made on HaikuWare back on Valentine’s day, a developer by the name of Adrian Panasiuk has taken up the challenge of porting Gnash (an open-source Flash player) to Haiku. From the announcement:

After sitting idle for about six months, Adrian Panasiuk has decided to take the Flash bounty (~$425) on, and hopes to complete it by porting Gnash and the Mozilla plugin by Mar. 1st!

While the completion date does sound a bit optimistic, it’s still very encouraging to find out that there is active development to get Flash working in Haiku. Whether you love it or loathe it, the simple reality is that Flash has become a de facto standard for online video delivery.
