Subject description: xz decompression support on Puppy?
 

There's a survey question on the Pale Moon forum, by Moonchild himself, https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=23273 asking about switching to .xz archives to reduce Pale Moon's tarball size. "Puppy Linux" is a mixed bag of various versions. Is anybody currently running Pale Moon on a Puppy version that has no support for xz? Before answering "yes", check if it's available, but not currently installed on your system. This survey is obviously limited to Puppies modern enough to run Pale Moon.

The oldest puppy where palemoon 28 runs is wary but it needs an unofficial glibc tweak and LC_ALL=C. Wary has not native xz compression capability but the package of palemoon for wary can easily be built with racy (which is derived from wary with new kernel and new xorg) for example: racy can manage xz compression. More recent puppies can manage xz compression as I know. So no problems for me.

I write this from a PM 28.7.2 in tahrpup64 6.0.6, and xz version 5.1.0alpha is present here.

I just booted Slacko Puppy 5.3 off of a USB stick on a refurbished Lenovo laptop. "xz --help" shows a help screen, so I know it exists there. I believe it's the oldest "official" Puppy that supports Pale Moon 28.x. Slacko 5.4 is currently installed on the laptop hard drive.

Subject description: Pale Moon 28.8.0 released
 

The latest version has been released (28.8.0). See http://www.palemoon.org/releasenotes.shtml for change list. For those who download tarballs direct from http://linux.palemoon.org/download/mainline/ note that they're now "xz" format. "tar" is generic enough that it can figure out file type if you have the appropriate unarchiver on your system. E.g. for palemoon-28.8.0.linux-i686.tar.xz you can simply command line...

tar xf pale*.xz

Note that wildcards are capable of unarchiving multiple files, if they're present in the directory.

Pale Moon has built in update with v28.0 onward.
So, simply use internal update to get v28.8.0
Just did it.
