    5       The first version of this guide was written by Rob Savoye.  If not for
    6       his tireless efforts, this book - and this project - would never have
    7       come this far.

   11       John Steinhart has also been supportive of the project from the
   12       beginning. I have shamelessly plagiarized one of his early
   13       announcement emails in the early part of this chapter.

   17       Ann Barcomb was instrumental in taking this guide from the 0.3.0 to
   18       the 0.4.0 version, incorporating the many changes that came with &app;
   19       version 0.8.0.

   23       &app; is based on the public domain program
   24       <application>GameSWF</application>, a graphics library
   25       for games that contains the heart of a SWF interpreter.  In December
   26       2005, &app; was forked from <application>GameSWF</application> and
   27       repackaged in the GNU project style, and a major recoding started.
