Firefox 3.6 users to get nudged towards 8.0.1

Is this supposed to affect Iceweasel? My Debian Squeeze still runs Iceweasel 3.6. Even my Linux Mint Debian Edition Xfce only runs Firefox 5.0, updated through distribution channels.

re: FF3.6

Mozilla, don't yammer at us users, tell the tail dragging distro maintainers that always seem to be 2 or 3 or 27 FF releases out of current.

And while you're at it, get those lazy addon authors to get with the program. I won't upgrade until ALL my current addon's will work on FF8 (or if you read this tomorrow, FF9, or if you wait until next week, FF10).

Looks like the fall from the top happens quite a bit faster then the climb. Mozilla, inventing faster, quicker, better ways to commit corporate suicide.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
