31.3.0.1 builds are uploaded to ftp.

From this point onwards windows builds are done on Windows 10 VM with VS2022 and "-Qspectre -utf-8" additional flags per Moonchild suggestion.

Thank you for these builds. On Windows, I am guessing they can be installed over the official build (and reverted back, if needed) without interfering with the user profile data or having to uninstall anything?

Yes, i did just that as soon as i got proof that this build options don't cause any extra instability. No configuration is changed, so they should be afaik perfectly compatible.

I initially thought 3.4.1 is just a typo in the installer's name. But after checking "About Pale Moon", the version 3.4 1 is correct after all.

Due to my mishap with repo cloning i built straight up v31.4.1 before it's release date. No changes were made to release since then, so it is legitimate build. Autoupdate is now available.

Installers/7zs was uploaded on the day of 31.4.2 release, and autoupdate is (finally) up now.

I have a question:
Should archive of versions be kept? Imo, there is no much use for them except previous version - old profiles can be accessed and upgraded with mainline builds, and in case of issues they can be used as well.

Thanks for the quick updates. You are correct, there shouldn't be any need to archive more than 1-2 versions.

32.1.0 is up, autoupdate should follow some time later is up as well.

Performance is really pleasing :)
Kudos to everyone who was/is working on this WebComponents abomination!

32.2 is up both on ftp and auto update.
---
Since i noticed use of -O3 by dbsoft in his FreeBSD beta builds, i started to wonder if is it feasible to try here, as this builds are attempt for moar speed anyway. My main concern is security - can it be impacted? I know that stability can be - but then it just needs test drive use too see how bad.
Actually i'm also curious if there are any other compiler flags that may not fly with older CPUs or are not fit for baseline stable builds but may be interesting to try?

Also, why async pan/zoom are not enabled by default? I don't see any issues with them yet and reduction of scrolling hiccups is very noticeable. And as i gather from descriptions of it - it actually puts panning/zoom and some other things away from main thread, which is good any day.

If there is interest i can produce builds without updater and with beta branding.

Sorry to bother you, i tried ftp://ftp2.palemoon.org/avx/linux/palem ... tk3.tar.xz but its still 32.1.1

EDIT: dismiss this post, i had the previous version opened and that was causing avx-palemoon to open a second 32.1.1 window. Thanks for the build :)

Thank you so much for this build. This is quite a dramatic performance improvement compared to the original build.
