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.

This release introduces few changes aside of the major upgrade from v45
to v52. It required changes to the branding, default extensions, and
build system. These development-relevant changes can be tracked at
http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gnuzilla.git and

Notable improvements introduced upstream include:
 * Captive portal detection and handling
 * Native support for FLAC
 * Along with many performance and security improvements.
 * Multiprocess windows ("Electrolysis"). Note that GNU LibreJS is not
compatible with this feature, which is globally disabled as a result.
