- New Naming and Versioning
- Due to the way the way versioning is changing in the source code Waterfox is based on and the new release channels Waterfox has, it makes sense to switch to a new scheme.
- As such, this release from 56.2.14 and 68.0b1 respectively will follow the date versioning system of YY.MM.X where:
- YYYY = Digits of year of release
- MM = Two digits of the month of release
- X = Hotfix
- There are also two versions of Waterfox to choose from. One focused on a legacy branch maintaining security and bug fixes and another branch focusing on keeping up to date with the modern web and a fully customisable web browser to go with it. The branches will be named as follows:
- Waterfox Classic YYYY.MM.X
- This branch is the legacy branch. There are no plans to retire this branch, and is going to be actively maintainted, the same as current.
- Waterfox Current YYYY.MM.X
- This branch is the modern, feature updated branch.
