HaikuWare recently broke the news that Gnash, a free/open source Flash player, has been successfully ported to Haiku. The work was done by coder Adrian Panasiuk, who has provided a screenshot of a youTube video being played with Gnash on Haiku – his webpage for the port also has a screenshot of the prefs panel.

The port is at a fairly preliminary stage so far and has some specific requirements (a hybrid build of Haiku and Firefox built with GCC4), but it’s still great to see that some serious progress is being made.

Thanks, I'll update the post.

I should probably pester Karl about setting up an RSS feed for the news section of their site :)
