Mozilla news in openSUSE

July 10th, 2009 1 comment

There are some news and changes on the mozilla side of things within openSUSE which I want to share.
As others have already written Firefox 3.5 is now available in Factory and older distributions in OBS.
These packages feature a new openSUSE specific addon called SUSEFOX if you install the openSUSE branding (which is the default obviously). This addon uses a currently experimental/incomplete webservice to offer the available content plugins (e.g. Flash and Java). I hope to get this backend finished and ready to use soon but there are some open questions about how to do it exactly.
Also there are some new places for “mozilla in openSUSE” discussions:

  • a mailinglist mainly for development purposes opensuse-factory-mozilla@opensuse.org
  • a IRC channel #opensuse-mozilla

Both should help to bring people together who are interested in contributing to that area. So see you there with your feedback and ideas.
