Release Notes

Big release for Waterfox. There are some huge performance gains from 27.0.1:
  • A complete, 100% ICC build! Yay! (As opposed to various VC and ICC build).
  • Profile-Guided optimisation is back, which brings nice performance improvements.
  • If you're running an Intel CPU, support for AVX2, SSE4.2, SSE4.1 and SSSE3 if your processor supports these instruction sets. AMD users, at the moment you only get up to SSE3 support
  • Using Mozilla's built in memory allocator as opposed to jemalloc, otherwise crashes occur.
  • Finally change the About dialogue to talk about Waterfox and to link to the Waterfox website (links not active yet)
