Request for more extensive Release Notes (or otherwise)

Unread post by Trala » 2012-07-17, 18:36


I'd like to request that the Release Notes might include any intention not to release a Pale Moon version for the major builds of the Firefox browser. So when Firefox 13 was released, but there is no plan to release a Pale Moon 13, this would be mentioned in the Release Notes or otherwise on the main page. I ask this because I always find myself trying to look for proof if any major PM version will be released or not, but I often cannot find any mention of this.

Or, further, is Pale Moon still walking somewhat in tandem with Firefox releases, or has this already been broken up, etc?

From the release notes of the current branch (12) as found on :
This version marks the start of a different release schedule for Pale Moon.

Instead of following the rapid release schedule of Mozilla, the browser will use version 12, a properly matured build with essential functionality, as a base to make incremental updates upon.
