  1. Thank you for the contributed builds! Much appreciated.
    As for problems:
    bug 294060
    bug 302536

  2. Er… “Alpha Release Candidates”?
    I’m thinking that this is a mistake. Don’t you really just mean 1.0 Alpha (1) builds? RC is only after beta, we’re nowhere near that yet…

  3. great logo and installer 😀

  4. I was a Netscape and Mozilla suite user. I want to test the new SeaMonkey for to move from firefox.

  5. No gtk2 build on the d/l site – the gtk1 build is still broke, the save as dialog box bug is still here – been waiting/testing this build for over 8wks now, same bug, gtk1/2 build are all I use. WHen this bug is removed, Ill test, not till then.

  6. Thanks for the Mac version. Are you going to update the main SeaMonkey website with the info?

  7. Why is Seamonkey 1.0a coming out after 1.1a?

  8. How do I set my tank up?

  9. Jason, we did a “release candidate” for the alpha because we wanted to make sure our first release was ok as we’d never done a release before (and had to do our own contributed builds). I would expect future alphas (e.g. 1.1a) will not have release candidates. After all, they’re just alphas ;).
    Amber, the default linux builds are GTK2. The only GTK1 builds are the ones that are specifically labelled *gtk1*.
    Scott, SeaMonkey 1.1a is the name for the current trunk, and it will be based on Gecko 1.9a. It won’t ship for a long time. Historically though, the version number on the trunk is increased as soon as a branch is made.
