Iceweasel ESR in squeeze-backports

In case this went unnoticed, Iceweasel ESR has been available in squeeze-backports for a few weeks, now. I highly recommend anyone using Iceweasel on the Debian stable release to upgrade to that version, at the very least. Even newer versions are available through the pkg-mozilla archive.

    Somehow it’s sad that this cannot be made official.

    mozilla.debian.net states that “.. Iceweasel 3.6 is not supported anymore, and you are strongly advised to update to esr or release”

    packages.debian.org states that for Stable, Iceweasel version is at 3.5.16-15 [security]

    I’m confused. Is Debian Stable providing us unsupported packages?

    I count myself lucky to come across this blog but believes that not every new Debian user knows of this blog. Some isn’t even aware of backports.

    Anyway, thanks for providing Iceweasel updates.

    Cae: There used to be 3.6 packages on mozilla.debian.net. These are the ones that are unsupported. I changed the text to be a bit clearer. 3.5 is still supported and still receives security updates, but it’s still better to upgrade to something newer.

    glandium: Thanks for the clarification. Been using your releases all along without a single glitch; a pity this isn’t available via Debian stable repo. Thanks again for the good work.
