    Pale Moon 27.8 released

    The developers of Pale Moon released two new versions of the browser in the past couple of days. Pale Moon 27.8.0 was released on March 2, 2018 and the follow-up release Pale Moon 27.8.1 on March 6, 2018.

    Pale Moon users who want to update to the newest version may do so from within the application. A click on the Pale Moon button and the selection of Help > About Pale Moon displays the current version of the browser in a new window. A click on "check for updates" runs an update check.

    The new version of Pale Moon is also available on the official project website. It can be installed over the old version.

    Pale Moon 27.8

    Pale Moon 27.8.0 is listed as a development update with "new and improved features and bugfixes".

    The browser includes several new, mostly minor, features. There is the new auto-correction feature for mistyped schemes that corrects ttp:// to automatically, an Eyedropper option in the AppMenu, and a setting in preferences to toggle the use of Ctrl-Tab to display tab previews.

    Another new feature improves emojis on Windows systems that "have relatively poor support" for them, and a new preference that controls the text cursor thickness of Chinese, Japanese and Korean languages (default on).

    The new version of the browser fixes several crashes and other issues in the browser, and removed unneeded or unmaintained code as well.

    The team updated support for TLS 1.3 by updating the specification to the latest draft in Pale Moon 27.8.0. It disabled support for it again in Pale Moon 27.8.1 a few days later. The NSPR/NSS update in Pale Moon 27.8.0 caused crashes, instability and handshake issues according to the release notes.

    The decision was made to back out and this affected the TLS 1.3 implementation. Pale Moon supports an older draft right now that is not current and may cause connectivity issues because of that.

    Pale Moon users may enable the implementation in the following way:

    1. Load about:config?filter=security.tls.version.max in the browser's address bar.
    2. Double-click on the preference security.tls.version.max and change its value to 4.

    You can undo the change at any time by changing the value to 3 again using the method described above.

    Pale Moon users who are interested in the full release notes can read them on the official web page of the project.
