* Fri Oct 12 2012 Russell Golden <niveusluna niveusluna org> - 3.0.0-2
- Replace "firefox" in EPEL builds with "firefox >= 3.5" for EL
    users who think updates are for sissies and/or voiding support
    contracts with proprietary vendors. They can't use this if their
    Firefox install is older than 3.5 anyway, so what's the harm?
* Tue Oct  9 2012 Russell Golden <niveusluna niveusluna org> - 3.0.0-1
- Since version 2.x:
    - 1,455 new active rulesets
    - UI improvements: 
      -- right-click to view ruleset source in the config window
      -- translate some untranslated menus
      -- better icons in a few places (breaking/redirecting rules,
        context button)
    - Numerous improvements to the SSL Observatory internals, including cached
      submissions on hostile networks, better Tor and Convergence integration,
      and a new setting to control self-signed cert submission
    - New translations: Basque, Czech, Danish, French, Greek, Hungarian,
                        Italian, Korean, Malaysian, Polish, Slovak, Turkish,
                        Traditional Chinese
  - Relative to 3.0development.8:
    - Only promote the Decentralized SSL Observatory to 5% of non-Tor users
    - Update the SSL Observatory whitelist of common cert chains
    - Fixes, mostly in the CDN/media playback department: 
             Akamai/CNN, GO.com/ABC, AWS/Amazon Zeitgeist MP3 player,
             AWS/Spiegel.tv, Technology Review, Cloudfront/Tunein,

             https://mail1.eff.org/pipermail/https-everywhere-rules/2012-October/001324.html
    - Disable buggy: Web.de, AJC.com, Feross, Bestofmedia
