To get the holidays rolling right, I've just updated SwfObj. Actually this release is in response to the changes in media handlers with WordPress 2.7. But it still sound nicer to say it's just for the holidays.
The main change in 2.7 that necessitated this release is the "From URL" tab in the media upload/insert popup. This requires a new handler in the plugin. I also took the time to add all of the features available for uploaded swfs to swfs linked to using the "From URL" tab.
There are always bugs to be squashed and this release includes a few of fixes as well. One to note is that the alt content is no longer automatically wrapped in
<p> tags. This means you can put it in whatever wrapper you'd like.
2009 is coming
I do have some plans for upgrading the project in '09. The major update I'd like to make is to enable dynamic embedding of swfs using SwfObject as an alternative to static embedding. I've had a couple of requests for this feature so I know others are looking for it, too.
If you have anything you'd like to see added/improved in '09 please let me know.
Thanks again to all who have provided feedback and support. Hope everyone has a happy holiday season!
