Re: Future releases

The changes coming out of the m-c woodwork is a tad bit ‘difficult’ to keep up with, especially with the <sarcasm> huge amount of resources that we have at our disposal.

That said, future releases will be delayed (*sigh*  I mean even *more* delayed) until we get rid of all these monkeys off our collective backs.  Monkeys?  I meant (insert your disliked animal/insect/whatever).  Do note we will release security fixes, should they be required.

The list of required action items:

  1. Infrastructure migration
  2. Aus2->balrog migration
  3. Testing infrastructure fixes
  4. L10n fixes/revamp
  5. Clean up code
  6. Understand where we stand with respect to what’s coming out of the m-c woodwork and how SeaMonkey should ‘evolve’. (I have no answer here tbh.)

This list is tentative as I’m probably missing a few items.   While there are ‘only’ 6 items, the amount of work for each of these items is very involved so they require time and effort amongst the already hectic schedule we run on a daily basis.

As an addendum to this, I appreciate the work that fellow SeaMonkey contributor frg, and the guys at #maildev to keep c-c building.  Without them, SeaMonkey’s future would certainly not be too positive (i.e. biting the dust).  So kudos to their hardwork and effort.

As a contributor to the project, I would like to thank our users for their patience with us and I hope you guys/gals stay with us as we move forward in our quest to dominate the world! (*muahahahaha*)

(*sigh*  yeah … feeble humor… sorry)

2.49.1 is being spun…

Well, it started a month or so ago but hit a roadblock.  It’s now progressing on..

Not really sure what’s going to happen afterwards since post 2.49.1, a lot of stuff that SeaMonkey depend on will be scrapped so 2.49.1 ESR will be the ‘stable’ release until we figure out our next move with respects to what SeaMonkey’s going to be like in the near/distant future.

Thanks for your continual patience.
