I am happy to announce the release of LibreJS version 4.8.

GNU LibreJS aims to address the JavaScript problem described in the JavaScript Trap<http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/javascript-trap.html>. 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.

You can find the source package and an installable file for version 4.8 in the project page: http://www.gnu.org/software/librejs/

This is a maintenance release. It fixes the following minor bugs:

* Web page character encoding: In rare cases, the content of the <body> tag for certain web pages would not be properly parsed. This would result in a blank page.

* The SHA1 hash of certain JavaScript files was not properly generated due to the character encoding specified in the response headers.

* The most current versions of the current free libraries have been added to the database.

Thank you,

Loic Duros
GNU LibreJS & IceCat maintainer
