      Description

      We should consider to remove the Shockwafe Flash parser plugin (parse-swf):

      • Shockwave/Adobe Flash reached end-of-life
      • major browsers now block playing Flash content
      • the plugin is based on 15-year old library (javaswf), not maintained anymore and not available on Maven repository
      • it's shipped in binary form also in the source package which contradicts the Apache release policy

      Notes:

      • should place a notice about the removal in the release not, as parse-tika is not able to extract textual content from *.swf files
      • do not forget to unregister the plugin in parse-plugins.xml
