latest sofware would be safer ?
 
hi,

First I want to thanks to all people who works for this distro, giving us privacy for free.

Second, I want to apologise about my grammar, but Enlish is not my native language.

I'm wondering why this distro does not include the latest verison of Firefox and Pidgin since it should include security in order to remain anonymous ?

And how can I upgrade to the latest version of Pidgin since yahoo has made several changes and I cannot conect on an older version of Pidgin ?

Thank you in advance

Because each single release requires quite a bit of work Incognito isn't released often enough for having all packages up-to-date. That's a problem, of course, and one of the reasons the whole project is in the process of migrating from Gentoo Linux to Ubuntu. Hopefully that will make maintanance easier so there can be more frequent Incognito releases.

pidgin 2.5.4 - how to update
 
On beta 2009 the pidgin version is 2.5.4, the up-to-date version seems to be 2.5.7, therefore many chat networks as yahoo and icq won't work. This is quite offending to me because I can't chat anonymously that's why!

@anonym: can you please post a little How-to describing how we can update our pidgin on ourselves? this is damn important for many of us!!

but Firefox included it is 2.0 ! it's not old, it is ancient.
(I'm not yet testing the beta version of Incognito)

The beta has mozilla-firefox-3.0.10, so maybe you should try that out.

Sorry, but this isn't really possible at the moment. The way Incognito is set up makes such modifications near impossible and just plain awkward at best, at least for programs using dynamic libraries, like Pidgin. Pidgin will of course be updated to the latest version on the final 2009.0 release which will be released once Tor 0.2.1.x goes stable.

okay, thanks. I hope, you also update Freenet.
