|On January 10, Mozilla confirmed that they will be releasing an Extended Support Release to appease professionals who were having difficulties with Mozilla’s current release cycle of every 6 weeks. Firefox ESR will maintain builds of desktop Firefox for a period of 54 weeks, covering nine releases.
Firefox 10 ESR will be released in conjunction with Firefox 10 on January 31. Read more...
What does this mean for PALCS?
I am told we will adopt Firefox ESR but it is not determined if we will adopt it for this school year since the final release of Firefox 10 ESR is months away.
What should you do? Keep running Firefox 3.6.25, the version currently released on managed workstations and supported by PALCS.
What about IE8?
There is a plan to make Internet Explorer 8 the default and primary browser on PALCS workstations. There is a tentative date set for late January 2012. I first announced this back in August 2011 at the request of our IT department. I will do my best to share any updates to this as they become available.
