    For those of you who haven't read the bad news Roytam, maintainer of MyPal, Centaury, Serpent and several other Mozilla projects has lost the rights to continue development of MyPal and Centaury. All executable installers have been removed from the Github repo.

    This is all due to a technicallity of his repeated violations of Mozilla Public License 2.0. Since his works are forks and include source code from other authors' projects it is within their right to terminate his license to use it if he violates the MPL.

    There is no word on how this affects his other Mozilla projects (Serpent, New Moon etc.) but if is violating MPL those may also be shut down.

    Last update was August 28 2021. We will have to wait and see if there are further updates but MyPal and Centaury development has ceased.

    It would be prudent to download the latest versions of New Moon, Serpent, Firefox 45 ESR from his repo before they get removed.

    Yep, I've noticed there's been no update since MyPal 29.3.0 was released.
    That version and previous versions can be obtained from HERE.

    Feodor2 and roytam1 are two different people, for reference. The former lives in an unknown ex-Soviet country (possibly Ukraine or Russia), the other is from Hong Kong.

    Both projects are/were independent of each other.
