palemoon-26.1.1 is now available for download.
26.1.1 (2016-02-24)

This is a bugfix release to improve stability and extension compatibility.

Changes/fixes:
Fixed a few oversights in the Firefox extension compatibility changes in 26.1.0 that should improve compatibility with a number of Firefox extensions.
Changed memory handling to (hopefully) address the memory inflation issues some people have experienced with 26.1.0.
Updated YouTube compatibility, which should once again allow users to choose between Flash and HTML5 players on YouTube.

Just piggybacking on this thread, palemoon-atom 26.1.1 for 32-bit Intel Atom processors has just been uploaded for the repo maintainer to add to the repos, so it should be in there soon.

palemoon_26.2.2 is now availble for download from the main repository.
26.2.2 (2016-05-10) & Android 25.9.2
This is mainly a security update.

Changes/fixes:

Added a detection routine for dark window colors on Windows 8 and later (system themes using dark window frames) to better adapt to dark system colors. Theme developers can take advantage of this by checking for darkwindowframe="true" on #main-window in CSS selectors.
CSS classes prefixed with "--" no longer stop parsing of the selectors.
Several crash fixes.

Security fixes:

Made GC suppression more aggressive to prevent issues when actually out of memory.
Fixed a memory safety hazard in jpeg decoding.
Fixed a potentially exploitable crash when using bi-directional text.
Updated NSS to 3.19.4.2-PM, fixing CVE-2016-1938 among other things.

palemoon-26.3.2 is now available for download from the main repository.

26.3.2 was mostly an update for windows systems but the 26.3.0 release got these updates:
Fixed an issue with new tab button theming on dark toolbars.
Reverted the useragent identification of Firefox compatibility mode to 38.9 to avoid WOFF2 font issues for sites that don't use proper font deployment as recommended by the W3C.
Please note that some websites may return to complaining about "too old Firefox" as a result.
Added a site-specific override for Google fonts to make sure it always works even if not using Firefox compatibility mode.
(workaround pending for a proper solution on Google's side)
Adjusted the "dark color" detection routine to switch text to white at higher relative contrast levels.
This will more closely match Windows 10's "flip point" for different accent colors and is within the recommended range determined by the WCAG.

I can see it in the main M12/MX 14 repo: http://main.mepis-deb.org/mepiscr/repo/ ... /palemoon/ and also the main MX 15 repo: http://main.mepis-deb.org/mx/repo/pool/main/p/palemoon/

So I guess it's still propagating through the mirrors.

Stevo wrote:Pale Moon 26.3.3 and palemoon-atom 26.3.3 are now in the main repo, and may the last in this flurry of updates. Just a few changes in this bugfix release:
* New upstream release:
- Fixed an additional issue found that could cause menu text on Windows 10
to be white-on-white (and therefore unreadable).
- Fixed an issue with news feeds not showing up when embedded in web pages.
- Removed recently-added parsing of the child-src content security policy
directive, after some web compatibility issues with it came to light, as
well as it becoming clear that the CSP spec will see it removed in favor
of the previous directive for embedded content. This should fix some
intermittent issues people have reported on e.g. the main google.com page
and phpMyAdmin installations.

Changes/fixes:
Fixed a crash in the XSS filter.
Slightly changed the address bar shading on secure sites to be more subtle and easily-blended.
Fixed the occurrence of "null" titles in bookmarks dragged from special folders.
Fixed an error initializing the browser due to trying to restore scratchpad data from a stored session when having switched from a version with devtools to a version without devtools, and the previous version had scratchpad data saved.
Fixed some minor issues in scratchpad and gcli devtools.

Security fixes:
Updated the HSTS preload list to a much more updated source list, and performing our own checks on validity from now on to have the list be as accurate as possible.
Disabled Triple-DES cipher suites by default (mitigating SWEET32).
I also added "~repack" to the versioning, since we have to extract their .7z source and repack it to a normal tarball that the build tools can use.
