Are there any release notes to the latest version of Moon Tester Tool (1.0.6)?

You can always look to commits log on GitHub. Latest changes were also mentioned here.

PS: I'm aware that some add-ons with old-style or uncommon install.rdf format (like Close tabs to the left or 2 Pane Bookmarks) can't be installed using Moon Tester Tool. The possibility to add support of such extensions is currently under investigation.

I tried to install Extension Options Menu 2.18 with Moon Tester Tool 1.10, but it refused to install it, returning the same error we were getting with Close Tabs to the Left, that it wasn't compatible with Pale Moon.

For comparison, I installed EOM 3.13 using MTT. Version 3.13 has a FF version number low enough to install in PM 27, but the toolbar button won't appear without modification to the chrome.manifest . MTT did add the necessary line to chrome.manifest (as the button appeared), so that's good news, but it obviously didn't modify the install.rdf because the listing still has the orange button in the Add-ons Manager.

(You may ask, why don't I just use Extension Preferences Menu? The main reason is that my favorite theme has a fully-themed toolbar button it uses for EOM, and it doesn't use it for EPM.)

Hey! I upgraded to MTT 1.1.4, and got a big surprise! I went to AMO, and saw a big green "Add to Pale Moon" button!

That was just a small cosmetic update, there is nothing to announce about it actually, but the changelog is always on GitHub.

I mean something that shows up in the Available Updates view of Add-on Manager, like so:

You click on "Show Release Notes", and then you can see the notes before you update (or decide not to update). 8-)

Unfortunately Pale Moon Add-ons Site does not support release notes embedded into Add-ons Manager.

For those curious, the showing of release notes is on the roadmap at some point in the future:
