@Nuck-TH, noticed this and using it right now. It really does feel more zippy and responsive when compared to regular Pale Moon, so thank you.

Forgot to announce. They were up with official ones.
You can always check ftp - i never upload parts of one release(autoupdate packages, archives for both both linux and windows and installers for windows) separately.

Thank you for the update! At first I thought they weren't there, but then I looked in the archive folder.

EDIT: I got the version numbers mixed up. I can't find 32.3.1 on the FTP site?

You could download and install the 32.3 version, then let auto update do the rest.

Thank you, I think that worked fine.

Is there any way to confirm that I now have the AVX2 version in the About Pale Moon, or elsewhere?

There's no way to confirm it. But Nuck-TH did state the auto update will detect and install the correct version. So, if you installed the AVX2 version, the auto update will update accordingly. There won't be any mix up. I took his words for it, rather than overthink things.

Worng, there is. A bit roundabout, but difference of this build are build flags, which are visible in about:buildconfig. Somewhere in compiler flags should be either -arch:AVX or -arch:AVX2.
Btw, i see that latest files were not moved from hidden prerelease dir, i will do that when i get home.

Nah, I did check it. It wasn't there. The browser hadn't auto-updated either.

Thank you to Moonchild and Nuck-TH and the entire development and build team. I so appreciate how there is an AVX2 version, while continuing to support 32 bits!
