IceCat 31.5.0 release

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.

Also their trademark license restricts distribution in several ways incompatible with freedom 0.

   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!
