Building K-Meleon on top of the Goanna engine

short summary (if I got it right):
Fellow Gecko-engine browser Palemoon has stopped support for XP.
Meanwhile it also uses a special own engine "Goanna", that they forked from gecko.

In the MSFN forum independant developer roytam1 works on a variation of Palemoon for XP: "New Moon" and other builds:
==> http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/177125-my-build-of-new-moon-temp-name-aka-pale-moon-for-xp/?page=17

Callahan introduced it to KM here: 'New Moon' Browser - Another Option
http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?12,142494
and kept us updated with crosspostings from the MSFN-forum.

That thread grew longer and longer, one day roytam1 showed up here too, and a few days ago he made a test build of KM76 with Goanna engine inside (G-Meleon?)
The discussion is going on in both forums now, over at MSFN and here at KM too.

Our 4-page-thread here was now split in the middle:
First half (in Offtopic forum): http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?12,142494
Second half (moved into Dev. forum): http://kmeleonbrowser.org/forum/read.php?19,143253

There's also a brandnew subforum for Goanna-threads:

roytam1 first official TEST builds!
https://o.rthost.cf/kmeleon/
Mirror (can be delayed): https://github.com/roytam1/kmeleon/releases

CHANGELOG:
see weekly-links below, and roytam1's Github commits:
https://github.com/roytam1/kmeleon/commits/master

INSTALLATION:
Those are portable 7z-versions. Just unzip them into a new folder, and make sure you have write permission there for the profile settings. "Portable" only in the sense that K-Meleon looks for the user profiles inside its own program folder, and you can copy it onto a USB-stick.
If you UPDATE to a newer version, best do it into another new folder (or read further instructions in later post)
