Sort of. The more advanced sort of navigation stuff is not working. Links that 
use small .swf files as their images do work. Anyhow, it is better than last 
time around. 

It looks as if the plugin may only work if you've already opened a .swf file 
in the current session, but I am not sure.

Also, as regards sound (for those interested in movies), this from their 
mailing list:
