Migrating off archive.mozilla.org

Hi all,

This is a heads up to all.  We need to stop using archive.mozilla.org by year end.

So, we are migrating our files from archive.mozilla.org to a storage system on Azure.  However, I want to note that there are files there that I will not be moving.  They will most likely be left as is until Mozilla blows it away (or I do).

The only folders that are being migrated are the “releases” and nightly folder.  [I’m currently copying the files from releases to the new storage area, so nightly will need to take a back seat.]  The rest will be “decommissioned” as they are relics of a past that we can no longer go back to.  Tinderbox is dead.   Comm-* builds are no longer feasible/relevant.  Candidates are also no longer relevant.

I’m hoping to setup the new storage system as a ‘static’ page so that one can just go to (for example, https://archive.seamonkey-project.org/) and you can see both the nightly and releases directory.   At this point in time, I’m working on it.   The copying is taking the longest.

As the person who’ve worked on and around archive.mozilla.org, I feel sad to see all those files go poof. I guess it’s a feeling of nostalgia(makes me think of those years working with Callek to get the releases out on Buildbot) rather than actual utility.  Once Jan 1 comes around, it will be the end of an era and of course, the beginning of a new one.

Anyway, *if* you are interested in keeping those files, I’d suggest you download them as soon as possible.

Best regards,

:ewong

2.53.17.1 Automatic Update

Hi,

The dog ate it.

Well, if we had a dog, I’m sure it would’ve eaten it.   If,  of course, it was edible.

Humor aside, as I write this, the updates should be available.    Please backup your profiles before checking your updates.

I had thought I had sent the job for the update; but it’s my bad that what I thought I had done, I hadn’t done.

My fault really.  I apologize for that.

SeaMonkey 2.53.17 is out!

Hi All,

SeaMonkey 2.53.17 has been released!  Please check out [1] and/or [2] for further information on changes.

Also to note, it has been a long time since I’ve even done the release notes.  Just shows how much one forgets after not doing it for so long.  Heck, even my hg account is disabled. ;/

Best regards,

PS: Updates coming up soon.  Instead of having a hiccup with the release, I’m having a hiccup with the updates.  *Thanks Murphy!*

NB:  Please note that this is a very delayed post as 2.53.17b1 was released two weeks ago but due to the fact that I had forgotten my password and had to get help from Mozilla to get it resetted.   I apologize for the delay.

SeaMonkey 2.53.16 Beta 1 is out.

Hi All,

The SeaMonkey project team is pleased to announce the immediate release of SeaMonkey 2.53.16 Beta 1.  As it is a beta version, please do backup your profile.  That said, please checkout [1] and/or [2] for the release information.

[side note/thought here:  I had thought of using “SeaMonkey 2.53.16 Beta 1 is OUT!” or “SeaMonkey 2.53.16 Beta 1 is out!” but had thought that’d be shouting…  though I am exclaiming that it is out.  Looking at previous release messages,  I didn’t realize I had used the exclamation mark that much.  Didn’t really mean to shout rudely.  Was just exclaiming.  Just hard to properly exclaim in a message without sounding a bit rude…  anyway.. I digress.]

Best regards,

Anyway, build 3 is out.
