2.40 is out!

Yes! SeaMonkey 2.40 is out.
(Since it is getting late, I'm copying and pasting what I wrote in the newsgroup post. I apologize for not taking the time to make a decent post, but it is past my bed time. :P )

Greetings,

After so long a delay, for which we apologize, the SeaMonkey
Project is pleased to announce the release of SeaMonkey 2.40!

So please check out [1] or [2].

Please note that the website information, while updated for
2.40, still requires a bit more work.

We cannot repeat this enough.  Thank you everyone for your
patience with us.  This very long delay due to infrastructure
and resource issues has been very trying on a lot of people.

It has been a very tough release.  I think it's the
toughest one I've done.  However, this isn't to say that
I did this alone.  Kudos go to a lot of people, particularly
the guys/gals in Mozilla's IT and RelEng dept.

I particularly want to thank Nick Thomas for his sheer
brilliant idea that helped me unhork the partial mar upload
script as well as pointing out the necessary changes
to migrate off FTP to S3.

Thanks to Jens Hatlak for taking the time to do the Website
patch. (Really, sorry for the delay.)

Also, thanks to Justin Wood for giving me this opportunity
to work out the problems myself.  If you all take a look
at bug 1233615,  I think I rivaled the mess I did with
the GTK bug (conveniently forgotten the # :P ).  The
repo changes I made...  oh boy.  Only time will heal
the mess^H^H^H^H wounds. ;P

Anyway, most of all, thanks to all the users out there
for hanging on to this project.  The words of encouragement
(especially during the broken-hand period) definitely gave
me a boost of energy.

Oh.  Before I forget and in the light of being transparent,
there is a chance I might have goofed something up, especially
during the 2.39 Win32 builds as well as the 2.40 builds and
also the partial mar and complete mar updates.  I hope I
didn't screw things up too much, if at all (here's hoping).
Please do post here on your findings.


Anyway, thanks again.

PS: I think I'll post something later, when I have most of my mental faculties with me. :P

update on 2.40

The first part is complete.

The second  part is where it gets hairy.  The move to S3 has completely broken the second part of the release process and so our scripts will need to be retinkered.

2.40 news

Well…while this isn’t super good news since 2.40 still isn’t ready (Win32 candidate builds are up though but haven’t been ‘processed’ yet), we are progressing slowly.

The issue now lies with l10n.  (*roar* indeed ;P)

I was hoping that I’d fire off the l10n repacks automatically; but, something during the repack is causing the loaner to bsod (according to the windows recovery dialog).  So, I am watch the whole process go. (Think of watching paint dry, minus the paint fumes).

Once this is done, it only signifies the end of the first half.  The second half will be ‘interesting’ (for some loose definition).

So we  very much appreciate everyone’s extreme patience with us.  You guys/gals are the best!

WHERE IS 2.40?

Up until now, I thought 2.35 was a painful spin….

2.40 is completely crazy! Between working on it with a fractured hand(right hand), and all the problems jumping out at every corner, I’m still wondering (albeit softly to myself) whether 2.40 will be released with my sanity intact.

Now,  I do confess I bungled up on the first three builds. Can’t fault anyone on that.  Forgot to change the relbranch on two instances.

So we’re up to build 4. (Personal record, btw.)

Building wise, things are ‘ok’.  Linux* built ok.  OSX64 built ok but failed on the crash-symbols upload. (Fixed the issue. Just retriggered.) WinNT is building (but I worry, since I’m building on a new loaner — the previous loaner was decommissioned without any notice, so I lost  some work there as well as losing track of what needed to be done.)

But the l10n part failed. So we’re figuring that out.

Sorry for the delay. Being out of commission for a few weeks has set my whole scheme out of wack.
