LibreJS 7.16 released

Item posted by Ruben Rodriguez <rubenquidam> on Wed 05 Sep 2018 09:40:49 PM UTC.

GNU LibreJS aims to address the JavaScript problem described in Richard Stallman's article The JavaScript Trap*. LibreJS is a free add-on for GNU IceCat and other Mozilla-based browsers. It blocks nonfree nontrivial JavaScript while allowing JavaScript that is free and/or trivial. * https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.en.html

The main improvement in version 7.16.0 is the implementation of WebLabels (https://www.fsf.org/blogs/licensing/rel-jslicense), which was the remaining missing feature since LibreJS got reimplemented using the WebExtensions format. On top of that, multiple bugfixes and performance improvements were added. All contributions thanks to Giorgio Maone.

Changes since version 7.15 (excerpt from the git changelog):

Fixes missing feedback for actions on the report UI when in a tab.
Fixes missing feedback on tab reload from UI panel.
Refactored HTML loading, parsing and serialization mechanisms.
Moved external licenses check into response pre-processing
WebLabels-based license checking implementation.
Fix Back/forth navigation not changing tab status information
