For what it's worth, I have NEVER installed any of the PREVIEW updates... which basically is just an early version of NEXT MONTH's "regular" update.    They have enough headaches with the regular ones... so I say let other people be the guinea pigs for the previews.

Pale Moon:  v28.3.0 (2019-01-15) https://www.palemoon.org/releasenotes.shtml This is a major development and bugfix release. Changes/fixes: Added AV1 support for MP4/MSE videos. Please note that this is a reference library implementation and the upstream decoding lib currently has poor performance for higher resolutions (720p+). This is disabled by default; use the about:config preference media.av1.enabled to enable this codec. Changed the API used for video playback with FFmpeg 58+. This should solve performance issues with VPx. Redesigned the main toolbar icons as SVG images to make them HiDPI compliant. Fixed the sync notification (infobar) icon. Fixed a potential cycle collector resource leak. Added icons and controls to tabs to indicate if sound is playing the tab and if so, allowing the user to mute it with a click. This is a native implementation of the API in use in Basilisk and performs the same function as the "expose noisy tabs" extension, although the extension may still be preferred by some for e.g. skinning capabilities. The feature may be disabled with browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon. Removed support for VR hardware. Fixed out-of-bounds sizes for CSS calculation strings. Removed the DirectShow component since it is no longer necessary. Removed Firefox Accounts integration, phase 1: Changed the Sync client to the one from Tycho. Made Sync optional at build time. Stopped trying to cater to addons.mozilla.org since they no longer offer anything useful to Pale Moon after the Great XUL Extension Purge™. Added an option to process favicons for optimal sized display and removing animations. Enable this with browser.chrome.favicons.process Fixed an incorrect preference reference in feed reader. Fixed an issue with lazy frame construction on display:contents elements. This should solve e.g. the use of mathjax in comments on stackoverflow. Media code improvements and cleanup (ongoing). Updated the DropBox useragent override to solve login issues. Fixed potential crashes due to shutdown observers in VTT and font lists. DiD Enabled some mistakingly-disabled optimizations in the JS JIT compiler. Fixed several potential crashes in JS. DiD Fixed several potential crashes in WebCrypto. DiD Fixed a potential crash in JS Range Analysis. DiD Fixed a potential crash in the layout engine due to combo boxes. DiD Fixed a potential shutdown crash in non-standard environments related to 2D Canvas. DiD Fixed a potential overflow in the PNG writer. DiD Fixed a potential double-free in the MAR signing utility. DiD Fixed an issue where URLs could be extracted cross-origin ( CVE-2018-18494 ). Updated NSPR to v4.20. Updated NSS to 3.41, providing (among other things) full compatibility with the final version of TLS 1.3 on websites. Updated location.protocol to the latest spec. Updated Intersection Observers to the latest spec and enabled them by default. Updated the SQLite lib to 3.26.0. Fixed errors about the login manager's recipeManager not being available (yet). Switched status bar download arrow to SVG. Fixed a crash in IntersectionObservers. Fixed initialization of the Search service from browser code to avoid synchronous init. Added logging of performance warnings to devtools consoles. Fixed favicons in taskbar tab preview listings. Blocked Comodo IS dll < version 6.3 to prevent startup crashes. Fixed issues in the HTML form submit observer module. Limited resolving depth of CSS variables to a sane maximum (fixes cras.sh issue). Removed Mozilla's proprietary constructor on WebAudio's AudioContext, aligning it with the standard specification. Exposed the previously hidden preference in about:config for page thumbnail generation (some people prefer this for local privacy). Aligned Element.ScrollIntoView with the DOM specification. This improves, among other things, compatibility with the React framework. DiD This means that the fix is "Defense-in-Depth": It is a fix that does not apply to a (potentially) actively exploitable vulnerability in Pale Moon, but prevents future vulnerabilities caused by the same code, e.g. when surrounding code changes, exposing the problem, or when new attack vectors are discovered.   -----------------------------------------------------------------   Update via the internal Updater:   Help / About Pale Moon ; or full downloads: https://www.palemoon.org/download.shtml

The following was copied/pasted from https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=224223.0 Happy New Year! New stable version 19.1.2360 (build 4124)has just been released to celebrate the new year 2019! This version brings a lot of new features including full 64-bit version, new settings and more..   What's NEW: - Simplicity! We’ve simplified our settings screens and even added direct links from our feature screens to their settings - Search! We’ve added a search bar to our settings to make it easier to find what you need - Speed! Users of 64-bit Windows should now see faster PC startup and scan times - Automagic! After purchasing another Avast product from within your antivirus, the new product will now be installed and activated automatically — no activation code needed - Security! Our Firewall’s network detection is now better than ever What we FIXED: - Firewall now runs properly (without a PC restart) for those who’ve upgraded from Avast Free Antivirus - Boot-time scan results can now be found in your scan history - Fixed improper arrangement in our Web Shield detection (threat type and URL were switched) - Your settings can now be backed up and restored again How to install: 1. Update from your existing Avast version via Settings -> Update -> Update program 2. Or you can download the offline installer and install from here http://files.avast.com/iavs9x/avast_free_antivirus_setup_offline.exe   ====================================== Remarks:   I have not personally downloaded/installed this new version.   Users who choose to do so should proceed with caution, as this appears to be a major re-write of avast to take advantage of x64-bit systems.   (It is no longer XP/Vista compatible).

  If memory serves me, MBAE (as well as all REAL-TIME features of MB) is/are functional only in the PAID/Premium version of MB... the free version is simply an on-demand scanner for "malware".

Dale: MBAE is in "perpetual beta" --- there is no other version.   So for anyone choosing to run MBAE, the beta is fine. The good news is that the perpetual beta includes (for FREE) all the features of what used to be the paid/pro version --- that is to say, you can (optionally) add shields for any additional programs you wish MBAE to cover (in addition to those included by default).
My understanding of MB vs. MBAE: 1)  EVERY time you install a new version of MB, it will automatically delete MBAE. 2) After installing a version of MB, if for some reason you prefer having the sep... See more...
My understanding of MB vs. MBAE: 1)  EVERY time you install a new version of MB, it will automatically delete MBAE. 2) After installing a version of MB, if for some reason you prefer having the separate MBAE, then 2a) you can opt to disable the version of Anti-Exploit included/running in MB, and then 2b) separately install MBAE.   But I really don't see this serving any purpose.

  In addition to changing the Adobe ARM Service to manual (via WinPatrol or Windows Services), there's also a Scheduled Task (Adobe Acrobat Update Task) which I've disabled in Task Scheduler, and a START-UP Adobe ARM.exe which I disable via CCleaner's Start-Up (which seems more effective than WinPatrol for this particular program).
