Waterfox 56.0: 30 November [Free, open and private web browser.] - Page 519

post #5181 of 7367
No confirmation but it is looking increasingly unlikely we will see another Waterfox release.
I have switched to Firefox 22 now due to the security fixes, I really hope we will see another Waterfox release.

I sent Mr.Alex today an email to ask if waterfox is dead or still alive and he replied very fast:

"Waterfox isn't dead. In fact I have someone helping out at the moment so hopefully the next version will be released soon. Every past configuration wasn't compiling due to bugs with ICC so I kept on having to push the date back waiting for patches.

Thanks,
Alex "

So we all have to wait ...........

I wouldn't have seen the need to ask at all, because trust, dedication and commitment what makes the Waterfox community great. MrAlex says he's working on it, and we know he's true to his word. The intel guys should be ashamed the one of the most popular projects doesn't compile, and they don't seem to be inclined to fix these nasty bugs - look at Waterfox to know what support really means!

I hope now that FF/Cyberfox 23 are out, the compilation problems will have disappeared and we'll soon see a link to the newest incarnation of the fastest browser on earth - so keep checking this thread!

Seems to me the Intel compiler is more trouble than it's worth.

You don't have to comment EVERYTHING - for me there was need to ask him directly 'cause Mr.Alex haven't left any comments for MONTHS.............

Hey guys, just an update.

SSL is being installed on the website (should only be down for an hour) and Intel is helping with the final bug stopping compilation of Waterfox.

If you think you can help:

There is also this posting from Aug 6th http://www.waterfoxproject.org/development.php

Hi everyone,

Just a small post to let you know how Waterfox 23 is coming along:

The big showstopper bug, has been resolved (more information here).
There are various files that ICC doesn't compile, but VC does, so I have to have manually add those files to be compiled by VC

That means if these files are very few, Waterfox will be able to be released!

The website can now also be accessed via https://

Thank you for your patience, I know it's been a long time since the last version of Waterfox, but I've been working since then getting Intel's C++ Compiler to work and some stellar progress has been made!
