Updates - Mozilla

Postby sprucio » 2005-08-07 03:13

I know that some Mozilla products have security updates released and I am shocked that Debian hasn't taken care of this.

Is there a major delay in Debian's development due to etch?

I've tried updating firefox myself but it never goes higher than 1.0.4 for some reason.

There are problems with mozilla updates (similar to those that existed with mozilla 1.0 in woody afair). See: http://lists.debian.org/debian-security ... 00315.html

So we aren't getting updates at all?

If I was using this at work, this would cause serious problems.

?!?!?! If the update is that important, why have you not downloaded and installed the latest version from www.mozilla.org ?

Hm, not that I really care for this specific issue, but what would be the point of automatic system upgrades then, ey.

One of the things I like about Debian was the fact that apt-get took care of problems such as this.

If I wanted to manually get a package (which I don't want to do), then I'd go use Fedora.

Furthermore, is Mozilla the only package that's affected? Are there more plans on this happening to other pacakges?

It looks like Firefox has been upgraded as of August 15, 2005.
