May 15, 2009, 19:06 (0 Talkback[s])

"The non-profit organization Open Media Now, which manages Gnash, is seeking donations in support of its summer v9 project. "We are halfway to our fundraising goal now and need to raise another $75,000 to make the project a success" says OM Now Executive Director Lauren Riggin. "This is a project that impacts how we, as a community, access and provide web content. So, naturally, we are hoping for a wide spectrum of support from individuals, organizations, and companies -- anyone wanting an alternative to proprietary flash. Five dollars or $50,000, it all says 'Go-for-it'! And that's what we love to hear.""

"An FSF High Priority Project, Gnash prides itself on its cross-platform portability. And while it has been several years in the making, CTO Rob Savoye says he is glad his team put the extra time and effort into making Gnash so portable. "It is very satisfying to know that we can provide web-users with a stable internet experience regardless of CPU architecture or operating system."
