let's have some fun with upcoming Firefox 57 a.k.a Firefox Quantum. This
is a major Firefox update with key - pleasant and unpleasant - changes:
- fastest than ever with Rust, CSS Stylo, Sandbox...
- new "Photon" look
- and disabled XUL extensions
according to the disruptive nature of the update which is planned to
land in *all* Fedoras at Nov 14 I decided to put the update to the
testing as soon as possible, which mean we have Firefox 57 Beta packages
at update-testing right now.
If you don't consume update-testing regularly you can install Firefox
# dnf update --enablerepo=updates-testing firefox
and also expect new versions there. Please give it a shot and report any
issue to our  or Mozilla bugzilla .
This is a reminder that the webkitgtk and webkitgtk3 packages will be
retired from rawhide shortly after F26 is branched from rawhide. This
is due to numerous security issues affecting those packages (I just
counted 204 CVEs), many of which could allow remote code execution.
Bugs have already been filed against all directly-affected packages
Note: to count the vulnerabilities, I just manually added up the CVEs
listed at , ignoring the oldest advisory WSA-2015-0001, and
discounting five of the older vulnerabilities in WSA-2015-0002.

I think many people work on new packages during weekends, but it's not possible
to get any new repos during weekend (right now there are 73 opened tickets
in fedora-scm-requests). Is there someone who could process tickets during the
weekends? Can I help with this myself?
