After about 8 months of development, we now have a new milestone release with literally too many changes to list even concisely. These release notes will therefore only highlight the most important parts of this release.
In this release we've done a full upgrade of our back-end platform, meaning many things work different "under the hood" and you may run into a number of extension compatibility issues as a result.
New and updated features:
Support for DirectX 11 and Direct2d 1.1 on Windows. This will bring Pale Moon more in line with the capabilities for current-day operating systems and graphics hardware.
Update of the Goanna engine to 3.0 - with many changes to layout and rendering for the modern web.
Pale Moon now fully supports HTTP/2.
Ruby Annotations are now an integral part of the HTML parser, controllable with CSS.
Media Source Extensions have been implemented to solve many video playback issues.
This can be enabled/disabled and configured in Options. It's recommended at this time to not enable MSE for WebM since there are a few issues with it on services like YouTube (e.g. losing audio when looping/skipping).
Support for reading and playing so-called "fragmented" MP4 files has been added, further solving media playback issues.
Support for SSL/TLS connections to proxy servers.
Support for the WOFF2 font format for downloadable fonts.
The way web content is cached has been changed to be more efficient. If you want to immediately take advantage of this, clear your cache.
Removed support for Windows XP. If you are still running Windows XP, then your only option is to continue using Pale Moon 26.
Removed the internal PDF (pre)viewer. This module was not maintained, was unable to display even half of the PDF documents correctly, and could not reasonably remain included in the browser. Please use a separate reader and/or install a PDF reader plugin.
Disabled building of the devtools. They will not be included in release versions of Pale Moon from this point forward. If you are a web developer or otherwise need those tools, fear not! They are available as a browser extension.
Removed the active XSS filter. This feature, although effective, was prone to some instability and needs to be rewritten for the update of our platform. It may or may not return in the future, depending on whether the original author has time to rewrite parts of this filter implementation.
Removed support for Add-on SDK extensions (JetPack extensions), considering the Mozilla/Gecko SDK is no longer compatible with our combination of application and platform code.
All relevant security fixes up to and including Firefox 50 have been ported across from Mozilla to continue to provide an as secure as possible browser.
Several libraries have been updated to their latest versions to pick up any important vulnerability fixes.
There's a new option and control to determine whether to save zone information (marking files as "downloaded from the Internet") on downloaded files (Windows+NTFS). You can find this in Options.
Other important notes:
Pale Moon 27 will initially only be available in English. We are working on getting localization done to have language packs available over time.
Important: You can not use the previous language packs since many strings have changed. Trying to do so will likely prevent the browser from starting or functioning. Pale Moon will automatically disable language packs for the previous version, but if you have explicitly disabled add-on compatibility checking you may run into trouble.
We will continue to fully support the following:
Extensions with binary/XPCOM components
XUL/Overlay and bootstrapped extensions
Unsigned and author-signed extensions
The Camellia encryption cipher (also in GCM mode)
Graphite font shaping
Sync 1.1 (albeit without support for syncing add-ons)
Full customization of the UI as before
This is a bugfix release for some of the issues that popped up with the new milestone.
Fixed removal of distribution/bundles/ copies of status bar code and ruby annotations code.
This should clean up everything on install/upgrade that currently causes double code to create intermittent/odd behavior.
Backed out some media back-end changes to fix MSE playback on Twitch.tv and other similar sites.
Disabled pop-up network status in full screen by default (since video detection is rather iffy at the moment).
Fixed a regression causing the "reset profile" button to not appear in about:support on the default profile.
Worked around bad Netflix interface changes - it will now use a more compatible web UI.
Please note that these Netflix changes were unrelated to the actual release of Pale Moon (26.5 is also affected).
Aligned base status bar colors with default prefs.
Fixed status bar options not being remembered.
Added an override for Amazon Prime videos so they won't stop us at the front door any longer when not using the Firefox Compatibility user agent mode.
Re-applied proper branding text to in-app licensing.
Firefox crashes with 3rd party Chinese IME when using IME text
Various security fixes
Critical security updates, immediate update recommended
