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.

Announcing dex, an Open Source OpenID Connect Identity Provider from CoreOS

Today we are pleased to announce a new CoreOS open source project called dex: a standards-based identity provider and authentication solution. Just about every project requires some sort of authentication and user-management. Applications need a way for users to log-in securely from a variety of platforms such as web, mobile, CLI tools and automated systems. Developers typically use a platform-dependent solution or, just as often, find existing solutions don't quite address their needs and so they resort to writing their own solution from scratch.
