I'm on the last Aurora from 18.04.2017. And still no update to beta. It;s almost a month...

Any news when it will happen?

Still no ETA but there is something interesting in the comments to this bug https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.c ... 353825#c39
1) We would like to push the DevEd build to an early beta audience as part of the Beta staged rollout. This is needed to stabilize quality and crash rates before pushing beta builds to 100% of beta end-usres.

So it looks like DevEdition won't be just rebranded beta after all. Also, I guess the best source of news is the bug above :-"
I am an idiot. Sorry for my poor English.

Automatic updates for "Aurora/DevEdition" stopped without offering switching to Fx 54 beta or 55 Nightly (daily Aurora builds are still posted on Mozilla servers). Since there is still no date when the switch (for current Aurora users) happens it is a valid question in my opinion, but reading "Mozilla Firefox > Firefox Builds > Future of Aurora Channel" thread might have helped preventing the question in the first place.

Newer is not always better, why do you need the beta version?
What is the currents version's issue?

Do you understand the purpose of this thread?

Before there was Release < Beta < Aurora (developers edition) < Nightly development channels.

Now it may end up being Release < Beta < Nightly

From the linked bug, it might also become Release < [Beta or Dev Edition] < Nightly, with Beta and Dev Edition on the same branch, but Dev Edition enabling more diagnostic options and getting daily updates. In that case it's pretty much business as usual for current Dev Edition users, but Beta users will use something closer to Nightly.

Stakeholder: Releng, QE
Priority: high

Are you ready for deprecation of XUL & XBL & XPCOM extensions? Not?! Try Firefox ESR (still supported versions: 52 and even 45)

Next Monday.





(Just kidding, but nobody else really answered it. So, if it isn't then, it is on them to prove when.)

Updates get enabled once this bug is closed.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1358614
https://github.com/mozilla/balrog

Can still manually update to none-QA version. (aurora didn't have much QA anyway.)
https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=mozilla-beta
Find the DevEdition for your OS. click the green N or B. Find the binary (depends on OS.)
Builds aren't localized.

Before I noticed this thread, I checked for latest Aurora builds - and found a newer one, from 5/10, so I installed it - Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:54.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/54.0 ID:20170510004018 CSet: 94b7e538af7dbb9a6567cad9125c2f5411e7fb80

Now I'm puzzled, why was it even there?

After seeing the above post, I tracked down the right Tinderbox build - but then I decided to not bother. I mostly run Nightly anyway. Just gonna wait until they fix that bug and updates are enabled - I don't have a fast enough Internet connection to be downloading Tinderbox builds every day, and there's no point in testing if you don't have the latest build.
Win 10 Home x64, Linux Mint 17.3 MATE x64, AMD A4 5300 APU 3.6 GHz, ADATA XPG DDR3 1600 8GB, ATI Radeon HD 5450. Firefox 53.0.3, Developer Edition 53.0a2x64 (Win only), Nightly 55.0a1x64 (Win), Nightly 54.0a1 (Linux AMD64) .

ask Mozilla, you'd think Mozilla would of had the Aurora Channel Dislocated when they decided to dump that channel
