In any case, I now compiled and installed IceCat 24. However, still, the question remains how to cleany update to version 27 or whatever newer version when it is released. What does a GNU/Linux user have to do in this case? Remove the older version and install the new one? Simply install the new one over the old one?

I don't want to rush. Simply asking if IceCat 27 is to be released soon, because I want to avoid compiling and installing IceCat 24 when version 27 is to be released within the next days.

By the way: As a user new to GNU/Linux, I would like to ask how you would update an existing version of IceCat with a new one? Of course you can use checkinstall and uninstall an existing version before installing a new one. But this would delete also all user settings, wouldn't it? So what's the way for updating software made out of source code?
