Pale Moon 28.8.3 has been released.
This is a bugfix and security release. More information in the release notes!
The release notes,
Quote:
This is a regular maintenance bugfix and security release.

Changes/fixes:

Fixed an issue in CSP blocking requests without a port for custom schemes.
Fixed a potentially hazardous crash in layers.
Fixed random crashes on some sites using IndexedDB.
Changed the way the application can be invoked from the command-line to prevent a whole class of potential exploits involving modified omnijars.
If your special-needs environment requires that you launch the browser with custom browser/gre omnijars from the command-line, you must set the UXP_CUSTOM_OMNI environment variable before launch from this point forward.
Fixed an issue in the html parser after using HTML5 template tags, allowing JavaScript parsing and execution when it should not be allowed, risking XSS vulnerabilities on sites relying on correct operation of the browser. (CVE-2020-6798)
Unified XUL Platform Mozilla Security Patch Summary: 2 fixed, 2 DiD, 10 not applicable.

v28.9.0.2
(2020-03-25)
This is a small bugfix update addressing 2 more important issues in 28.9.0:

Fixed an issue with browser migration and initialization code causing various browser run-time problems.
Fixed an issue with cache behavior where some users would have trouble having their windows and tabs restored in "soft refresh" mode (see v28.9.0 release notes).
To solve this, we reverted to the previous (pull from cache) mode for now while we investigate the cause.

28.9.1 (2020-04-10)
This is a minor security and bugfix release.

Re-imported the ExtensionStorage js module for use by browser extensions.
Fixed an issue with the WebRequest module having erroneously un-processed build directives in it. This might have caused some subtle breakage.
Removed the use of high-resolution Windows system timers from the layout refresh driver; this should help with some performance and battery life issues.
Fixed an issue where various parts of hardware acceleration weren't properly linked when changing the option from preferences.
If you have changed the preferences option to "use hardware acceleration when available" between 28.9.0 and this release, it is recommended that you go into preferences and toggle the option off/on to the preferred setting to correct any discrepancies.
Fixed an issue with building the user-agent string using the build date as ID.
Fixed an issue with the release of document content viewers (CVE-2020-6819). DiD
Fixed an issue with handling functions with rest parameters. DiD

Just grabbed it from github, seems ok. Still builds fine with alsa and gtk2.
Many recent changes with packaging upstream.

Couple of notes:
some standard paths have changed in platform, but some files in platform still reference a path which is no longer valid
to get around that, I did symlink $SRCNAM1 to $SRCNAM1/platform/application
also, replaced mach in $SRCNAM1 with the one from platform because something was broken

Pale Moon v28.9.2 (2020-04-30) has been released.

Quote:
This is a minor update for stability and compatibility.

Re-based the 28.9 version of browsers on a separate development branch that excludes the extensive work being done for Google WebComponents, to avoid potential performance and stability issues caused by as-of-yet incomplete and in-progress code for the new milestone.
Enabled DOM High Resolution timestamps for compatibility with websites that strictly rely on them for operation.
Added a preference to allow copying the unescaped URL from the address bar (especially useful for internationalized domain names and paths).
To enable this, set browser.urlbar.decodeURLsOnCopy to true in about:config
Fixed several application crashes (thanks, Fysac!)
