security updates

Just synced the latest Firefox and Mozilla security updates to the staging server. Mozilla 1.7.12 and 1.0.7 should be visible soon on FTP mirrors out there. (real official YOU updates will follow soon)
I’ve restructured the directories a little bit but for now there are links pointing to the new locations. Those will disappear sometime for clarity reasons, though. In addition I started to provide metadata usable by YaST and YUM together with pages created by repoview. For now this is only available for 9.3 and 10.0 in directories named the same way.


experimental repository

Back from Brainshare Europe which was again a very interesting experience. (And I didn’t find the time to write something during this event ;-)). I’ve met some guys I only knew by mail by then. But I wonder why I’m always away in the final days before a new release or new security issues coming up in mozilla stuff. Fortunately the VPN to the office was usable to some extent.

During these days there was a discussion on the openSUSE list about having a YaST repository for the experimental mozilla/firefox stuff. So now there is a yum repository (usable by YaST on 10.0) for it (thanks to cthiel for his hints). But please note that experimental is really true here. Sometimes there might be versions which don’t work at all. A repository for the stable versions will follow soon.



If you don’t have enough to do with testing the public SUSE Linux 10.0 betas as they are I have some stuff for you as the next round of releases is near. I have new XulRunner and Thunderbird packages out there for 9.3 and 10.0. Both have enabled Pango font rendering and XulRunner has canvas support in addition.
New SeaMonkey packages will follow soon. If you now ask about Firefox: I have to merge forward the changes for the official 10.0 version to Firefox 1.5b first. The packages which are already available are not up to date.
