"Gnash isn't a media platform, it's part of one. We want to free-up the entire user space for flash based applications. So we've also been maintaining the Ming project, which we use as our flash compiler, and I've been lately working heavily on a media server that speaks ActionScript and RTMP and can support video conferencing and groupware applications. Over time, we plan to modify these tools from the creation side to the server to the client to predominately use patent free codecs. We'd also like to put a nice simple GUI on Ming, as now all our flash creation tools are command line oriented."
