      as a blank ("Click here to start") screen.

Less visible to users:
    * Garbage Collector usage reduced where appropriate.
    * Mouse.hide and implemented in GTK.
    * ActionScript inheritance fixes:

        o implements / instanceof works correctly now

      not tested yet), and initial implementation of npgnash.dll exists.
    * Sprite handling improved, fixing FlowPlayer and other video SWFs.
    * TextField handling:
          o Fix in device font handling (DefineFontInfo tag)
