Ming is a library for generating Macromedia Flash files (.swf), written in C, and [:WhatsIncluded:includes useful utilities] for working with .swf files.
It has wrappers that allow it to be used in C++, PHP, Python, Ruby, and Perl.
Releases through to 0.3.0 progressed slowly, though the new 0.4.0 release has picked up speed, become more reliable, and supports Win32 much better. Also supports Solaris, and will likely support MacOS X as well.
Ming CVS has updated support for PHP. The code can now be built for either PHP4 or PHP5.
Ming 0.4.0.beta5 has been Released. Details can be found [:Releases:Releases here].
