    Hi… is there a reason I consistently get notifications to update about a day before a release is announced and, after attempting to update, those updates fail until 12 to 24 hours later? It’s a bit annoying since it happens every time a new update is (about to be) released.

      Yes, there is a reason. The reason is I’m an incompetent idiot. The system uploads the binaries to a temp place and then adds the updates to the backend and the updates server sees the said backend changes and so it offers the updates. But the actual update mar files hadn’t been moved to the releases/ folder. You can say it’s a race condition; but in actual fact, it’s just me not thinking ahead. I’ve made some changes (and will continue to do so) to the system so that it doesn’t offer the updates until the updates are *actually* present. My bad and my apologies.

    Awesome! Looking forward to the new version!

  3. Probably the wrong place to ask (in which case please accept my apologies) but I have just received the following from Google; as I rely on Seamonkey for e-mail, using IMAP to access Imap.Gmail.Com, I am very concerned that post-May I will lose this facility. Any reassurance will be much appreciated.
