SeaMonkey Project News/Announcements

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

Only for testing, you will use those builds on your own risk. I recommend to create a backup of your user profile before you start testing those builds.

Mozilla Bugzilla Down?!

Zur Mozilla-Bugzilla HomepageSince 07:55 UTC+1 I can not reach our Bugzilla any longer.
For few minutes I got a message “Service Unavailable – The service is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later.”

Now pages will not load.

 

SeaMonkey 2.39 additional Release Notes

Additionally to the very outdated “official” Release Notes here you find some more information concerning changes with SeaMonkey 2.39.

New features

Please see Wiki-Page. I do not know which Firefox42 – features made it into  SeaMonkey

A Bugzilla query shows  SeaMonkey 2.39-specific RFE-Fixes – for “Bug 1153577 – Users should be able to hide the menu bar and show it with the ALT key” there might be a problem with Ubuntu/Unity.

Bugfixes

  • Bugs in SeaMonkey 2.38 what have been fixed for SeaMonkey 2.39.
  • Bugs which have been fixed in  Thunderbird and Firefox since SeaMonkey 2.38. Not all bugs in Firefox or Thunderbird do affect SeaMonkey, but also it is not sure that all fixes will work in SeaMonkey.

New bugs

The “Known -Issues“- list is outdated, here an attempt for a more realistic overview.

Possible new bugs (“Regressions“)

Old and new bugs

A horribly long list, what does not consider that not all Thunderbird– and Firefox-bugs are relevant for SeaMonkey. And many of  them are UNCONFIRMED or outdated (have been fixed in between).

Download-SeiteThanks to all who made possible this release.

SeaMonkey 2.39b1 information

Here some additional information concerning the new beta release (official release notes here unfortunately are very outdated) .

There are some possible  Regressions compared to 2.38 (bugs, what appeared after release of  SeaMonkey 2.38).  It would be great if some users would do bug triaging  with the UNCONFIRMED ones  from the list. (1)

🙂 But, of course, we do not only have possible regresses, but also real progress, several   Bug-Fixes.


(1) A Bugzilla-Account is required to proceed these queries. Please consider that SeaMonkey might be affected by bugs and bug-fixes for  Firefox, Thunderbird, Core and others, none of the related bugs will appear in resulting bug lists.

SeaMonkey 2.35 Release Notes Complements

In the following some additional release information what currently still are missing at the official SeaMonkey release notes.

Pieter Bruegel the Elder - The Tower of Babel  (from Wikipedia)Here you find a Google machine translation of the official SeaMonkey Website for approximately 90 languages. The result sometimes isn’t easy to understand, but may be better than nothing – alternatively you can try regional websites.

Bugzilla Logo (from Wikipedia)Here are some queries what  might be useful for the decision whether to update to 2.35 or not (without any guarantee of completeness and correctness):

A Bugzilla account and also to be logged in to Bugzilla is required to do the queries and to see the list

Please consider that the queries do not contain any bugs that exist (or have been repaired) in Firefox or Thunderbird without having been reported for SeaMonkey separately in Bugzilla. On occasion I will try to find more useful queries.

The queries are dynamic and take into account progress (and setbacks) immediately.

Mozilla WikiSome new SeaMonkey 2.35 features are listed in the Wiki.

SeaMonkey 2.35 language packs

Unfortunately for the latest SeaMonkey 2.35 version with several security patches no language packs were available. Because my experience is that the 2.35 language packs Adrian Kalla contributed some weeks ago (and what are no longer available at his download area) work fine with that latest 2.35 build I asked him to send those language builds to me, and I made them available for public download at sourceforge.net.
