Firefox ESR 38 for OS/2: target release in december

Time goes by and the next release of Firefox is still not ready. The reason for that was a delay of work on required fixes and the recent work on the font code to replace the old one. A prerequisite for this to work was to update and fix a bunch of required libs: fontconfig, libtool, glib, freetype2, harfbuzzm, cairo, pixman and pango. All this is required to get a current font code in the codebase working like it is for other platforms. There has been a big progress on all new lib code but some work on the rendering is still required as a current build won’t render any characters correctly. In case the work on the code continues without big delays then a public build release in december or january should be possible.
