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.

Will the new restart button be given an icon at some point?

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?
