Hey folks, in light of Firefox 52.x ESR reaching EOL a few hours ago, I'm
providing some updates. This required adding Rust and a newer version of
LLVM as optional updates for Slackware 14.2. And in case it doesn't work
for you (perhaps there's an extension you need that's not supported by 60.x
ESR), the last Firefox and Thunderbird 52.x EST have been moved to /pasture
as a fallback. If there are any more updates to those (but I don't think
there will be), I'll make those updates in /pasture as well.
  • pasture/mozilla-firefox-52.9.0esr-x86_64-1_slack14.2.txz
    Moved here from patches/packages/.
  • pasture/mozilla-thunderbird-52.9.1-x86_64-1_slack14.2.txz
    Moved here from patches/packages/.
  • patches/packages/rust-1.28.0-x86_64-1_slack14.2.txz
    Since Rust is now a requirement to compile Firefox and Thunderbird we
    are adding it here. Unless you will need to recompile those (or need to
    compile other code written in Rust), it is an optional addition.
