  lp:~sindhudweep-sarkar/gnash/gnash0.8.7packaging has the changes necessary to package gnash 0.8.7
+ 
+ Benefits:
+ From upstream:
+ "Improvements since the 0.8.6 release are:
+ 
+ * Automatic and spontaneous screenshots support in all GUIs
+ * Significant memory savings in parsing large XML trees and in
+ some function calls
+ * Enhancements in video streaming
+ * Non blocking load of bitmaps, movies, data
+ * Refactoring to eliminate most static data and get closer to
+ re-entrant VM
+ * Cygnal now supports multiple network connections, handling
+ multiple video streams
+ * Cygnal now supports plugins for server side scripting in
+ C/C++ "
+ 
+ Gnash developers usually are more interested in bugs from recent
+ versions of gnash. Packaging 0.8.7 in an LTS release means there is a
+ greater chance that bugs can be relevant and forwarded to upstream.
+ 
+ Risks:
+ * ships new shared object library libgnashagg.so.0.0.0 which seems to be mostly a re factoring of the existing shared libraries. The rest of the packaging changes should be benign cleanup and fixes for other bugs. 
+ 
+ A package exists in the gnash team PPA that can be tested.
