This release is fixing a critical security update [3] in Firefox. In
addition we update NoScript to 10.6.3, fixing a few issues.

Users of the safer and safest security levels were not affected by this
security issue.

Note: As part of our team is currently traveling to an event, we are
unable to access our Android signing token, therefore the Android
release is not yet available. We expect to be able to publish the Android
release this weekend. In the meantime, Android users should use the
safer or safest security levels. The security level on Android can be
changed by going in the menu on the right of the URL bar and selecting
Security Settings.

 * All platforms
