I have just been made maintainer of IceCat and GNUzilla. Thanks to 
Giuseppe Scrivano for all his work in the past and how far he took the

how IceCat has been run until now, and the direction towards which the 
project will go in the future.

As you may already know, our plans for IceCat are big, starting with an

_javascript_. GNU LibreJS detects nonfree nontrivial _javascript_ and will 
be enabled by default in IceCat after a few interactions with the 
extensions currently used by IceCat are addressed.

We will also need an add-on list that is more up to date and easily

free license to get an up-to-date list of add-ons that could potentially 
make it to the IceCat add-on list. Some of you on the list have already 
shown some interest to work on this (Thanks Leonardo!). As Jason Self

extension code is effectively under a free license, and automate as much 
as possible, the ongoing maintenance work that the IceCat add-on manager 

The initial release of IceCat 12 might take a little longer since there 
is a lot to work on, but I expect subsequent versions will regularly 
become available shortly after Mozilla publishes new versions of its 

Thanks, and I'm looking forward to getting the next release up.
