Reminder: Support Ends for Firefox 1.5 April 24

As I reported last month, Firefox 1.5.0.x will be maintained with security and stability updates until April 24, 2007. All users are strongly encouraged to upgrade to Firefox 2. As reported by Heise Security, there are plans to provide an automatic update from version 1.5 to 2.0 but it appears that this may not happen until the end of April, as there are still technical problems with the automatic update.

"Firefox versions and will be published before that date, with the update from 1.5 to 2.0 being launched shortly afterwards, offering users the Major Update. From version upwards, Firefox has included the auto update function for upgrading to a Major Release.

Since heavy loads are expected when these updates are downloaded, users are advised to perform a manual upgrade to version now."
