>> Hi all!
>> We are happy to announce that we finally have Tor Browser nightly builds
>> for Linux available that are based in Firefox 60 ESR. From today, May
>> 30, on you find them at the usual location:
>> http://f4amtbsowhix7rrf.onion/tor-browser-builds/
>> We already tagged a bunch of issues we found in the pre-nightly bundles
>> we built locally. For those we used the "ff60-esr" keyword. If you feel
>> brave and test those nightlies, please report unfiled bugs you
>> encounter. This helps us prioritizing things and gets those very likely
>> fixed faster.
>> We'll provide macOS bundles and Windows bundles as fast as we can. We
>> are currently still working on the toolchain update.
> Okay, macOS builds are available now as well. \o/

And Windows ones (both 32 and 64bit) now, too.

>> Known major issues with the nightlies so far:
>> 1) A couple of months ago we needed to get out an emergency Tor Browser
>> release to fix a possibly proxy bypass bug[1], affecting above all macOS
>> users and potentially some Linux setups as well. We currently don't have
>> a patch for that one as the underlying code changed too much between
>> ESR52 and ESR60. However, Mozilla is working on that for us and we'll
>> port the final fix back as soon as possible.
>> 2) Loacalized bundles are not working correctly due to missing locale
>> strings for the new circuit display. This should be fixed starting with
>> the next nightlies as I pushed the respective changes a couple of hours
>> ago to our Torbutton repository.
>> 3) The nightlies have JavaScript blocked by default (some of you might
>> even call this a feature).
>> 4) Loading default bridges/moat is not working.
> 1), 3) and 4) are still unfixed and to keep in mind while testing macOS
> nightlies, too.

That still holds for our latest nightlies...
