More Dead Air, and More to Come
All right, folks; sorry again for the huge delay in posting. I've been letting my subconscious turn over the design (read: slacking off), and there are a few changes that will need to be made to some of the interfaces that I've defined so far. I'd really like to get at least the SWFIO design done before the end of the summer, but I don't think that's going to happen. Which leads to my next announcement…
I'm going in tomorrow (Monday) to negotiate a short-term, full-time job at a software company I have prior dealings with. Short of dire budget problems or a major catastrophe, I suspect I'll be employed starting August 11th to September 27th, and school will be starting up directly afterward. Furthermore, I'm going to be on a road trip and unavailable from August 4th to the 10th. Thus, I'm probably not going to have too much time to do anything really substantial for the rest of the summer.
I'll be keeping an eye on this for sure, since I run a purely 64bit system and flash4 support just doesn't cut it.

Note: I have been told by someone who recently downloaded the SWF specification that Macromedia has added a restrictive license to the end of the document. Because of this, newcomers will not be able to get a copy of the spec and still be able to contribute to GPLFlash's development. Since other developers (such as myself) already have access to the specification without the license, this should not pose a major problem in the short term. Please bear with us, and do not seek out or use this specification in conjunction with the GPLFlash project.
