IceCat 31.5.0 release

Item posted by Ruben Rodriguez <rubenquidam> on Mon 09 Mar 2015 09:13:08 PM UTC.

GNUzilla is the GNU version of the Mozilla suite, and GNU IceCat is the GNU version of the Firefox browser. Its main advantage is an ethical one: it is entirely free software. While the Firefox source code from the Mozilla project is free software, they distribute and recommend non-free software as plug-ins and addons. Also their trademark license restricts distribution in several ways incompatible with freedom 0.

The main improvement in this version is the support for Windows, MacOS and Android, which added to GNU/Linux cover most user platforms. All versions are cross-compiled from GNU/Linux, so only free software is used for building. The published binaries have been tested for:

  • Windows Vista or newer
  • MacOS 10.4 or newer
  • Android 2.3 or newer
  • GNU/Linux with glibc 2.15 or newer (Debian Testing, Ubuntu Precise)

Binaries for Trisquel, Parabola and Fedora will be provided by the distros as usual.

Thanks to the developers of TorBrowser, on which the multiplatform support was based!
