Gnash is originally based on the code of GameSWF, by Thatcher Ulrich. GameSWF is the most advanced of the free flash movie player projects, and implements a fairly broad set of Flash Format v7 compliance. GameSWF was unsupported public domain software though, and not really setup to be an industrial strength project that could be used by everyone that uses Firefox. So in early December of 2005, GameSWF was forked, and the code rearranged in GNU project style.
