Pale Moon Version 28.9.2 Released
« on: April 30, 2020, 01:30:38 PM »
Pale Moon version 28.9.2 has been released. The update is a minor update for potential code issues, web compatibility and stability.

The update includes DiD ("Defense-in-Depth") updates. A DiD update is s a fix that does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.

From the Release Notes
  • 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!)
Linux versions for this update will follow shortly.

Update: To get the update now, select "Help" from the Pale Moon menu at the upper left of the browser window. Click About Pale Moon and Check for Updates.
