            So for users who DO use and appreciate the Firefox releases, expect Version 116.0 on August 1.
            If you use the other versions at all, check the appropriate column here, or visit
            http://whattrainisitnow.com/calendar/ for the latest release information.

                          How often do you update LibreWolf?

                          LibreWolf is always based on the latest version of Firefox. Updates usually come within three days from each upstream stable release, at times even the same day. Unless problems arise, we always try to release often and in a timely manner.

                          It should however be noted that LibreWolf does not have auto-update capabilities, and therefore it relies on package managers or users to apply them.

                            To let you know, we can be thankful for the work that the Firefox Release Team does, and also thank the LibreWolf team
                            for creating a refactored version that does it’s best to completely remove the callbacks to Firefox/Mozilla and other places
                            so that those who do not like their system characteristics or data to be shared in ANY form;
                            this, and the Ungoogled Chromium project are two attempts to remove such code from these otherwise useful projects.

                            As an earlier post mentioned, this week was the Firefox release, so sure enough, today, Friday, September 29, 2023
                            the LibreWolf 118.0.1-1 release has been published and it updated automatically on my system.

                              Since the Firefox Release Calendar indicates we’ll be getting Firefox 119.0 on October 24, 2023, we should see LibreWolf 119.0 before the end of October. Note that Firefox 118.0 was quickly followed by a bugfix 118.0-1, so that is also possible, in which case we could see a delay of a few additional days before the next version of LibreWolf becomes available.

                                Firefox Developer Edition is now up to 119.0b9 (64-bit), which means that the Firefox development cycle for Version 119 is nearing completion. The current released version of Firefox has had two minor revisions during development and it’s reached 118.0.2.

                                Similarly Librewolf also has undergone two minor updates during it’s current cycle to match Firefox.

                                We will be seeing Firefox’s next update on October 24, at which time I’ll report the next update; post #116576 in this thread shows the release calendar for the remainder of this year.
