The latest (and only) release of Gnash is currently waiting in the NEW queue
to enter experimental. It is the 1st alpha release, according to upstream.

Standalone gnash works quite good for me. There seem to be some instability
problems with the plugins though. Upstream are working on that.

My latest CVS-based packages of Gnash are from 30th of May, and (after some
days of problems in building the original sources) seem to be OK. I'm not
really willing to maintain a CVS-based version inside Debian's repositories,
but I'd prefer to wait until a new release is done.

I probably won't get it out of experimental until upstream formally releases a
beta version.

It's testeable and maybe usable for some things, but it's not in the state to
be given to end users yet.

It seems you might be having some problem with OpenGL acceleration. Gnash uses
OpenGL right now for rendering, although Upstream is working on that too.

The README file in the release waiting in the NEW queue says:

  The first alpha release of Gnash has just been made at version
  0.7.1. Gnash is a GPL'd Flash movie player and browser plugin for
  Firefox, Mozilla, Konqueror, and Opera. Gnash supports many SWF v7
  features and ActionScript3 classes. Gnash also runs on many GNU/Linux
  distributions, embedded GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, non x86
  processors, and 64 bit architectures. Ports to Darwin and Windows are
  in progress for a future release. The plugin works best with Firefox
  1.5 or newer, and should work in any Mozilla based browser. There is
  also a standalone player for GNOME or KDE based desktops.
  Gnash supports the majority of Flash opcodes up to SWF version 7, and
  a wide sampling of ActionScript classes for SWF version 8.5. All the
  core ones are implemented, and many of the newer ones work, but may be
  missing some of their methods. If the browser only displays a blank
  window, it is likely because of an unimplemented feature. All
  unimplemented opcodes and ActionScript classes and methods print a
  warning when using -v with gnash or gprocessor. Using gprocessor -v is
  a quick way to see why a movie isn't playing correctly.
