Icecat 31.7.0 new version was released on 10th of June (http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/gnuzilla/31.7.0/).
Why the only distro that is on your own mirror is not update yet?

Off-topic, sorry...
But... And Android version of Icecat?! Finally! I've been using Firefox on my phone, thinking "I wish Icecat was on Android..." And here it is!

He is asking (I presume): why Trisquel's Icecactus wasn't updated to the latest version, being that the latest version came out 15 days ago?

Oh my, Icecactus is so funny. I cannot stop laughing for unknown reasons... I'm just imagining a cactus in the middle of the snow :)

No sarcasm there, I really started laughing the moment I saw the comment.

Isn't that just a tower defense game, more or less? (I never played it.)

Hm, the only difference I gather from other tower defense games is that there are multiple paths. It might be possible to recreate it with an existing engine (not sure, since I'm not familiar with any of the libre tower defense games).

Also the developer is the same for both projects (Trisquel and Icecat)

Most probably because Ruben (the developer) is busy with other stuff and there's no one else to do the job. :)

There has been a lot of merge requests lately, and Ruben supervises every contribution before accepting the code change so that is a probable reason, another one could be that he is testing it to be sure it works properly.

Mampir
Desconectado/a

Still, testing and supervising contributions can be done by other people too, like in other distributions, not just by Ruben. So that's not really an excuse, it's just that Ruben is pretty much the only person who does everything here. So we either need to help Ruben, or make another similar distribution which is maintained by more than one person.

Don't take me wrong, I'm not here just to argue or complain. I'm really-really happy and very grateful for Trisquel. But it seems to me that some people are just not being realistic and not realizing the obvious thing: In order to make an even better libre OS and better free software programs in general, more people have to spend more time directly involved in the development.

The real question in this topic should be: "How can I help, so we can have a more recent Icecat version in the repository?"

But think about the answer too, before asking. :)

We need to form a stronger and more self-reliant community.

I agree with you on one thing though: trisquel needs more developers. There are never too much developers.

That is not true. In fact several dudes work on Trisquel and everyone can help.

I can verify what Mr ST83 is saying: there are more people than you think working in Trisquel and I can tell the project has its own identity. It is still true that Ruben does most of the work but he is not alone and there are helpers writen, corrected and modified by the comunity... and it seems to be growing.

Mampir

I stand corrected, as it seems things are better than I thought on the multiple developers issue, it's not only Ruben. On the other hand, things aren't that much better, so it's really a minor detail that technically Ruben isn't the only one. My point still stands, that if you want better software and sooner, more developers spending more time is required. Doesn't matter if it's Trisquel or upstream Icecat.

Some puntualizations:

* I wasn't able to find the failed script quidam said, It isn't with the other updated packages: http://jenkins.trisquel.info:8085/job/signed-dsc/buildTimeTrend

* There is only a new commit in the git repo for icecat here http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/gnuzilla.git ,and it's not related with icecat 31.7. As the change is also interesting for abrowser, instead of waiting for quidam to add the same change to abrowser, I did it and he only needs to approve the change here: https://devel.trisquel.info/trisquel/package-helpers/merge_requests/108/diffs#note_715

* The repo trisquel takes icecat from is broken now (http://devel.trisquel.info/icecat/repo )

So, imho, this problem is more related with Ruben himself, than with trisquel, as he is the upstream of the package, and for this version there is only a huge tarball, no code changes in git, and no debian packages, so it's not an easy work for an external icecat contributor.

Ruben, do you mind scheduling one or two hours each week, to hang on irc and talk about the trisquel project? There are people willing to help, but sometimes, we need to check with you about trisquel related tasks, and you aren't usually very communicative in the forums or the devel mailing list, and that's having an effect on the project.

What's the package name for GNU Icecat

apt-get install gnu-icecat

?

So I did this, and now I have IceCat 31.7.0 running on a fairly old Trisquel 6 install. Every time I try to use it to go to the Trisquel site, it crashes. I suspect it's something to do with LibreJS, as when I turn it off, Trisquel works fine. I had a similar instability issues with IceCat (will check version) in the Trisquel 7 instance I just installed, suspect the same cause.

I have been trying to find the repo for IceCat, is it still unavailable? Also I tried installing from source but kept getting error after error. As of this moment is there any easy way to install? I have heard a lot of hype for this browser, but everyone seems to be having issues installing.

I think the easiest way to install IceCat is using Synaptic Package Manager. Search for icecat and you will find version 31.8.0-gnu1+7.0trisquel1 and language packages.

> find the repo for IceCat

Find what? Unless you've done something stupid with your sources list, it
should be in the Trisquel repo.

> installing from source

You didn't need to do that.

> is there an easy way to install?

It's called apt-get. Just apt-get icecat (as root).
