Summary

Port lightspark asm bits to NEON. Port rendering routines to OpenGL ES.

Release Note

Ubuntu 11.10 now provides lightspark for the armel architecture, with full optimisations to improve the free flash experience.

Rationale

Flash on ARM is messy, complicated, and involves long contracts nobody wants to read. Further, there isn't a handy package in the partner archive to leverage for those using multiverse (or partner itself). Provision of a free solution helps the base experience, leaving the negotiations to silicon vendors, ODMs, IHVs, OSVs, and similar parties, rather than being a development blocker.

User stories

Assumptions

Design

You can have subsections that better describe specific parts of the issue.

Implementation

This section should describe a plan of action (the "how") to implement the changes discussed. Could include subsections like:

UI Changes

Should cover changes required to the UI, or specific UI that is required to implement this

Code Changes

Code changes should include an overview of what needs to change, and in some cases even the specific details.

Migration

Include:

  • data migration, if any
  • redirects from old URLs to new ones, if any
  • how users will be pointed to the new way of doing things, if necessary.

Test/Demo Plan

It's important that we are able to test new features, and demonstrate them to users. Use this section to describe a short plan that anybody can follow that demonstrates the feature is working. This can then be used during testing, and to show off after release. Please add an entry to http://testcases.qa.ubuntu.com/Coverage/NewFeatures for tracking test coverage.

This need not be added or completed until the specification is nearing beta.

Unresolved issues

This should highlight any issues that should be addressed in further specifications, and not problems with the specification itself; since any specification with problems cannot be approved.

BoF agenda and discussion

Use this section to take notes during the BoF; if you keep it in the approved spec, use it for summarising what was discussed and note any options that were rejected.
