Pale Moon 32.5.0 changelog:

This is a major development and security update. And a Happy Halloween to everyone who celebrates! πŸŽƒπŸ‘»πŸ¦‡

  • Removed the user-agent override for Netflix, since they have stopped supporting the Silverlight browser plugin. Pale Moon no longer has a way to provide Netflix DRM-controlled playback with them dropping it, so there is no longer a reason to try and force compatibility.
  • Updated the user-agent override for Spotify. While it is possible to use the website with this, it suffers from the same DRM issue and not all media will be playable (only non-encumbered media can be played in Pale Moon like podcasts). Your mileage may vary.
  • Implemented timer nesting and clamping for workers, preventing timer hangs on bad website code.
  • Improved handling of drawing SVG images on canvases without explicit width or height attributes. We now follow the css-sizing-3 Intrinsic Sizes spec.
  • Improved performance of our memory allocator.
  • Updated libvpx to 1.6.1.
  • Cleaned up and updated some media playback code.
  • Removed the inclusion of GMP (Gecko Media Plugin) support from Pale Moon, as it was only in use for EME/DRM and WebRTC, neither of which we support.
  • Removed the last vestiges of EME/DRM code from UXP, since this will never be supported in any application building on it due to the media industry's draconic policies around FOSS.
  • Removed simd.js, moving actually used SIMD handling to C++.
  • Removed the use of libav in our source, replacing its supply of FFT with the equivalent from FFMpeg. [full release notes]
