[Bug-gnuzilla] 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. While the Firefox source code from
the Mozilla project is free software, they distribute and recommend
non-free software as plug-ins and addons. Also their trademark license
restricts distribution in several ways incompatible with freedom 0.

GPG key ID:D7E04784 GNU IceCat releases
Fingerprint: A573 69A8 BABC 2542 B5A0  368C 3C76 EED7 D7E0 4784

The main improvement in this version is the support for Windows, MacOS
and Android, which added to GNU/Linux cover most user platforms. All
versions are cross-compiled from GNU/Linux, so only free software is
used for building. The published binaries have been tested for:

 * Windows Vista or newer
 * MacOS 10.4 or newer
 * Android 2.3 or newer
 * GNU/Linux with glibc 2.15 or newer (Debian Testing, Ubuntu Precise)
   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!
