Version 27.9.0 tarball is available for downloading. This is the last major development update for the v27 milestone (codenamed "Tycho"). After this, we will be focusing our efforts for new features entirely on UXP and the new v28 milestone building on it. We will continue to support v27.9 with security and stability updates for a while, but no major new features will be added from this point forward. Please read the full release notes at: http://www.palemoon.org/releasenotes.shtml

The download URL for the SSE build is ftp://contrib:get@ftp.palemoon.org/SSE-Linux/palemoon-27.9.0SSE.linux-i686.tar.bz2

Since this is not a mainstream build, it has to be installed manually. See the first post in this thread for install instructions.

Update to my older post:
coffeebreak wrote:In addition, uBlock Origin (the xul/"legacy" release) works well with Pale Moon.
It can be installed from uBO's GitHub repository (releases). The xul/"legacy" installer looks like this: uBlock0.firefox.xpi.

Starting with uBO 1.16.4, the xul/"legacy" installer looks like this: uBlock0.firefox-legacy.xpi

The former xul installer (uBlock0.firefox.xpi) will become the web-extension installer for releases later than 1.16.2.
(Though presumably it is still the xul installer for the earlier releases.)

Reasons: see Gorhill's comment, and this post.

The installation file for the xul version of uBO has changed to uBlock0.firefox-legacy.xpi. For details see this post.

Hi Walter,

I tried for some days but unfortunately I can't get access to ftp.palemoon.org to download the sse-browser (timeout).

Is it a temporary problem or is there something wrong with the ftp-server or is the problem on my side?

It looks like a server problem. I can't get it with my browser or log on manually with ftp from the commandline. I'll notify the admins.

Does the command
nslookup ftp.palemoon.org
report the new IP address 80.255.0.190 after you refresh DNS?

Whatever the problem was and whatever you did to fix it, the link now works! Thanks for help!

P.S.:Yes, the command reports 80.255.0.190

Hi Walter,

I just wanted to say:
Thank you for this up-to-date SSE-only build I just stumbled upon!
Pale Moon works like a charm on my AMD Athlon XP again.

P.S.: May I ask you if you know an e-mail client working without SSE2? Recent Thunderbird stopped working and the old versions are full of vulnerabilities. I searched several days already without any useful result.

Sorry; I use mutt (text-based) at home, so I'm not familiar with GUI clients.

As of Pale Moon 28.0.0 there will be no more SSE builds. The official announcement is at https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=19416 I'll do any potential interim security builds e.g. 27.9.4 or 27.9.5 but the SSE builds will end with the official release of PM 28.0.0, built on the UXP base. The new code base cannot be built to run on Lucid Puppy. Even if the binary was compiled as SSE-only, running PM 28 (more memory) on a newer OS (more memory) would be a very painfull experience on a Pentium3 machine that doesn't meet the 512 megabyte minimum RAM limit.
