Pale Moon (A Firefox Based Browser) Will Not Adopt The Australis Interface

Filed under
Moz/FF

As you may know, Pale Moon is an open-source, cross-platform browser based on Mozilla Firefox, being up to 25% faster then the original. The latest version available is Pale Moon 24.5.0, which has been recently released, coming with a bunch of optimizations, better support for third party extensions from Mozilla, and some bug-fixes.

I think Geekster is posting

I think Geekster is posting his own assumptions as news. Pale Moon is on the 24.x ESR. He noticed it doesn't have Australis theme so he decided to post that Pale Moon is not adopting it.
Australis was introduced in firefox 29.0 and not 24.x.
The next ESR which is version 31 or 32 or something will have Australis UI.
When PaleMoon moves to the next ESR, they will get Australis UI along with it. If they decide to get rid of it (and I haven't found any news source that says they will do so), they will have to do a lot of work to revert to classic UI.

I'm not a fan of Australis but so far, Geekster provided no sources to his claims that Pale Moon will not be adopting Australis.

LibreOffice 5.0 Right Around the Corner, Guided Tour of LibreOffice

  • LibreOffice 5.0 Right Around the Corner
    Major release LibreOffice 5.0 is due next Wednesday with a lot of new features. Italo Vignoli today posted The Road to LibreOffice 5.0 in which he looks back at all the added features since January 2015 with version 3.3. Today's summary shows "the impressive amount of new features added to LibreOffice since version 3.3." LibreOffice 3.3 was released in January 2011. This release was significant in that the development and management of LibreOffice had come together in a short time and put out a release that brought several new features. SVG support, easier title and page formatting and numbering, improved ergonomics in Calc, and Microsoft Works support were among the newest features added by The Document Foundation.
  • A Guided Tour of LibreOffice
    I have been using LibreOffice since it was called Star Office and all documents opened in a tabbed interface, as in most modern spreadsheet applications (anyone remember those days?). From those early days until now, I have considered Star Office/OpenOffice.org/LibreOffice to be an excellent, if not superior, tool compared to many on the market.
