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
