GNU LibreJS aims to address the JavaScript problem described in Richard
Stallman's article The JavaScript Trap*. LibreJS is a free add-on for
GNU IceCat and other Mozilla-based browsers. It blocks nonfree
nontrivial JavaScript while allowing JavaScript that is free and/or
trivial. *

The source tarball for this release can be found at:

The installable extension file (compatible with Mozilla-based browsers
version >= v57) is available here:

GPG key:05EF 1D2F FE61 747D 1FC8  27C3 7FAC 7D26 472F 4409

Version 7.14 is an extensive bugfix release that builds on the work done
by Nathan Nichols, Nyk Nyby and Zach Wick to port LibreJS to the new
WebExtensions format, and previously on the contributions by Loic Duros
and myself among others.

Changes since version 7.13 (excerpt from the git changelog):
 * Check global licenses for pages
 * Enable legacy license matching and hash whitelist matching
 * Refactor whitelisting of domains
 * Generalize comment styles for license matching
 * Use multi-part fetch mechanism for read_script
 * Improved system that prevents parsing non-html documents
 * Do not process non-javascript scripts (json, templates, etc)
 * Do not run license_read on whitelisted scripts
 * Prevent parsing inline scripts if there is a global license
 * Prevent evaluation of external scripts, as they are always nontrivial
 * Avoid parsing empty whitespace sections
 * Correct tab and badge initialization to prevent race conditions
 * Generalize gpl-3.0 license text
 * Improved logging
 * Disable whitelisted and blacklisted sections on display panel for now
 * Hide per-script action buttons until functionality works
 * Fixes to the CSS plus showing links instead of hashes
