Description

I'm assuming that build candidate 2 will be the release, and that it will arrive sometime on Monday.

Creating a ticket ahead of time to note that although I did not see any significant changes in js/src (tzdata updated, one line of python) I had to change the JS78 test invocation from

make -C js/src check-jstests ...
}}
to
{{{
make -C ../obj/js/src check-jstests
}}}

For firefox itself, a vast diff - mostly altering python2.7 virtualenv code. No idea what else changed, it's lost in the noise!

Scratch that, after confirming the current instructions work in 78.7.1 I went back to 78.8.0 candidate 2 and this time the tests ran. No idea what went wrong before.

Now released, but in view of our freeze I'm deferring until release notes are available.

I guess the announcement and release notes might be slightly delayed - firefox-86.0 has had a third candidate released this afternoon. The only change there is that avif images were reverted to 'experimental' (can be enabled in about:config even on 78 where for me it works ok on the one image I could find).
