Last day…

Well…  all this preparation and migration has culminated to this final day after which our dear ol’ infrastructure will be gone forever.

It’s like saying goodbye to a friend…

For Auld Lang Syne… my dear… for Auld Lang Syne… We’ll drink a cup of kindness yet… for Auld Lang Syne…

I remember fondly of accessing the systems through the jump host…

Website is… up…. down…up… what?

Hi,

Some, if not all, of you may have wondered what the smeg was going on with the website.  It’s up.  Then errors out.  Up.. Errors out.

The reason is simple.

PEBCAK^H^H^H^H^H^H Teething errors with the website… yeah…

Seriously, sorry about the missing website.  It should stick now.

On my defense, I had to reverse-engineer the behaviour of the old website as I had no access to it.  This includes ‘how’ the website is setup, and how it’s built and the cronjobs necessary.  So I should’ve expected some teething errors.

End of an era…

Dear All,

It is an end of an era as today is the last day of SeaMonkey’s old infrastructure.   Come 12th September, it’ll be shut down for good.  We’ve been using this infrastructure for more than ten years and it’s sad to see it go; but c’est la vie.

Now it’s fully on the SeaMonkey’s team to get the new infrastructure working and running.  What does this mean to everyone involved?  It means more involvement in getting things working, which unfortunately, isn’t the case right now.   The new infra is still going through the fixing part.

What this means is that any future releases will be delayed until this infrastructure is behaving properly.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Mozilla for all these years of helping us maintaining the infra as well as our multitudes of requests for items/bug fixes, etc.

I also would like to thank the users for your patience and understanding.

Best Regards

2.49.4 is out

Hi All,

Just want to announce that SeaMonkey 2.49.4 is finally out.  While not as hairy as the previous versions, it still had a lot of issues.

Sorry for the delay.

Spinning 2.49.4..

Hi everyone,

I am spinning 2.49.4 right now.   Murphy *is* still around so that’s all I’m going to say. 😛

I’ll keep everyone posted.

:ewong

Finally!

Hi all,

Just want to pop in and say that SeaMonkey 2.49.3 is FINALLY out.

This version was a painful one compared to the previous one.  The infrastructure totally crapped out (and it took me a while to fix the issue) and the mac machine is on its way out the door. [Then again, our whole infra’s on the way out the door. 🙁 ]

Thank you for your patience..

2.49.3 is Delayed..

Hi,

Not that there was any definitive ETA for 2.49.3; but, it will be delayed due to infrastructure failure, specifically, our only available Mac system is starting to show signs of hardware failure.

We’re having this system checked.

In the meantime, we’ve placed all of our efforts in getting the new infrastructure running.

Sorry for the delay and thank you for your patience.

2.49.3 is being spun..well..

Hi,

I should’ve posted this a few weeks ago when it was relevantish, I started spinning 2.49.3 build 1; but encountered some issues and with a new secfix,  I started build 2.

Unfortunately, there might be some delays as our mac is experiencing some issues, which is why I’ve been busy setting up the new infra.

Thank you for your continual patience.

SeaMonkey 2.49.2 is out!

Hi everyone,

Just want to announce that SeaMonkey 2.49.2 has finally been released!

I do apologize for the delay.

:ewong

Not Monday, nor Tuesday..

Hi all,

Just want to apologize for the delay.  Moco RelEngers have been super busy so the bouncer has to be done when one of them are available to update it.

Hopefully soon.   Sorry.  No specific dates, times, or centuries… After the past two attempts, I won’t be that stupid to raise everyone’s hopes up.
