Yeah, my late-2015 laptop running Linux Mint 18.2 with the Cinnamon desktop is preforming better with the new build too.

I see only 64-bit build available for download. I couldn't find any post stating any particular reason for that, so my guess is release engineering overhead.
I understand if my request is turned down, but will you please consider providing 32-bit builds.

Unstable Linux builds are 64-bit only. See the first post in this thread.

Would it be possible to get something like "palemoon-unstable-bin" added to the AUR?

We now have 32-bit unstable builds for Linux available. I've updated the first post of this thread with a link and info.

Will there be separate dates listed on the OP for the separate builds once there's a new 64-bit build?

The build date will be in the form YYMMDD inserted into the tarball name. E.g. 170821
  • 17 ==> year 2017
  • 08 ==> month 08 (August)
  • 21 ==> day 21 of the month

Right now, I intend to put up a new build every Monday, barring vacations, etc. You can view the contents of the download directory with the URL ftp://contrib:get@ftp.palemoon.org/32bit-unstable-Linux/ to check if a new build has been uploaded.

I recon that sort of auto-update stuff has never affected and will never affect any of the Linux builds at all, unstable or not.

I've advanced the schedule a bit, because I'll be taking a short vacation next week. I won't be around Sept 18th-to-22nd. The next build after that will be Monday Sep 25th.

Is that filename a typo or is that really an alpha version of 27.6?
