Pale Moon unstable releases - release notes

These release notes are for pre-release versions of Pale Moon. They may include notes for public betas and the intended "rolling" unstable channel we have planned for the near future.
Please understand that these release notes are concise summaries, nothing more.

If you find bugs in these versions, please report them in the issue tracker on GitHub for Pale Moon. When you do so, please check if the bug has already been reported before by others to prevent duplicate entries in the tracker. If you report bugs, make sure to include the build date (as found in the about box) and provide clear information about the bug:
  • Clear indication of what version of the browser this was found in (x86, x64, Windows, Linux, exact version and build (see "About" box)
  • Clear description of the bug found, with a concise and clear title for the issue
    (include exact circumstances and exact error messages, if any)
  • Steps to reproduce
    (what exactly do you do to cause the bug to become apparent?)
  • Expected results
    (given the steps taken, what did you expect the browser to do?)
  • Actual results
    (what did the browser do instead of what was expected?)
Also make sure that before you report a bug, that you verify if the bug also manifests with default preferences and no installed add-ons (preferably create a new profile to check).

Current trunk progress since release (major changes only):

  • Added Windows-specific CSS parameters and queries for the use of the system accent color. Added are parameters -moz-win-accentcolor and -moz-win-accentcolortext, and the media query -moz-win-accentcolor-applies to know if Windows is actively using an accent color.
  • Changed Windows' browser CSS sheet ot use variables instead of hard-coding colors, simplifying its style and making it more flexible. Further cleaned up the Windows 10 specific browser style.
  • Changed the theme on Windows 10 to use the new accent colors and improve consistency.
  • Fixed an issue with automatically exporting bookmarks to HTML on shutdown.
  • MSE Media updates (ongoing).
  • Fixed a regression re: domains allowed to/blocked from installing add-ons.
  • Fixed several internal errors thrown in the front-end.
  • Fixed more things in the Windows theme.
  • Updated Windows widgets to be able to pick up Windows 10 accent colors dynamically and have the browser 's look and feel respond accordingly, even with automatic color changes based on desktop wallpaper.
  • Fixed several minor issues in the devtools.
  • Fixed ES6 iterator prototype chains.
  • Fixed ES6 vector append calls and some related memory leaks.
