 +====== Packages to Add to Future Releases ======
  
 +This page contains a list of packages we are planning to add to future releases of Cucumber Linux. If a packager or package status is listed as 'HELP WANTED'​ for a package, that means we are looking for someone to package that package.

To provide a solution to this problem, we will start including the Pale Moon browser in the distribution as well; this browser is a fork of Firefox that will continue supporting these extensions. |
