I am happy to announce the new version of GNU IceCat 24.0.

This version is based on Mozilla Firefox version 24.0, which was
released on September 17, 2013.

GNU IceCat 24.0 sources are available for download here:

To build, run:
./configure && make

To install on most systems:
sudo make install

For convenience, a build for GNU/Linux 64-bit is available:

        * LibreJS has been updated to version 5.4. Please note that, due to
    incompatibilities with Request Policy, when starting IceCat a new
    IceCat profile the addon panel will not display anything until the
    second start of the application. After the application restarts, you
    will see the panel displaying the blocked JavaScript normally.

        * Using a modified version of Gnome 24 theme released under the MPL
    2.0. This theme makes the whole user interface more compact, which
    is very useful for smaller screens.

        * Added RequestPolicy to block cross-domain requests. Initially most
    cross-domain requests will be blocked. You can gradually start
    allowing more requests and share your whitelist on
    address@hidden This add-on is used to block all sorts of
    trackers and spyware such as the Facebook button, Social Media
    trackers, and centralized Analytics trackers.

        * Created IceCat Tweak extension to make menu bar more compact.

        * Changed user agent from privacy addon to be more common

        * Now using the FSF Directory for addon repository. Please add add-ons
    to the list on the FSF Directory directly!

Please report any problem you may experience to the
address@hidden mailing list. Binaries for different systems will
be made available through the mailing list.

Thank you,

Loic Duros
Gnuzilla and IceCat maintainer
