Fedora 8 Update: nspluginwrapper-0.9.91.5-15.fc8



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2007-4805
2008-01-07 00:50:26
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : nspluginwrapper
Product     : Fedora 8
Version     : 0.9.91.5
Release     : 15.fc8
URL         : http://gwenole.beauchesne.info/projects/nspluginwrapper/
Summary     : A compatibility layer for Netscape 4 plugins
Description :
nspluginwrapper makes it possible to use Netscape 4 compatible plugins
compiled for ppc into Mozilla for another architecture, e.g. x86_64.

This package consists in:
  * npviewer: the plugin viewer
  * npwrapper.so: the browser-side plugin
  * mozilla-plugin-config: a tool to manage plugins installation and update

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Upstream nspluginwrapper discovered the actual problem of the Flash Player 9.0.115.0 crash.  nspluginwrapper was expecting multithreaded plugins to themselves link and initialize for multithreading.  nspluginwrapper now itself links to libgthread-2.0 and initializes multithreading in npviewer.

This update removes the previous workaround that restricted a browser plugin to a single core.  Multithreaded plugins like Flash Player 9.0.115.0 should work a bit more smoothly on multiple core systems.
