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..
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.
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.
Just want to announce that SeaMonkey 2.49.2 has finally been released!
I do apologize for the delay.
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.
No, wait. Tuesday..
Seriously speaking though (or writing, as is this case), the update verifications are done and now, I’m just waiting for the resolution of the bouncer before I can continue. In hindsight, I should’ve filed that bouncer bug before. My bad.
So, I am hoping Monday (Pacific time zone) the earliest is when 2.49.2 will be out… latest Tuesday.
Thank you for your continual patience and support for SeaMonkey.
Kinda thought it was toooo smooth. The updates generation/checking portion of the release process totally hit an obstacle. A code change in the updater program (something I totally missed, though am stumped as to why we didn’t encounter this for 2.49.1) screwed up the scripts. I’ve fixed it and have retriggered the update verifications. Unfortunately, windows’ verification is still busted.
So… release will be delayed until Sat/Sun or perhaps earlier.
Note to self: Don’t talk about release eta until after that final verification step. Otherwise, Murphy *will* find a way to put a kibosh on things.
Hi. ’tis me again.
Just going to say that the updates step failed and after struggling with it for the past day or two, the release *should* be back on track, plus or minus a day.
I did say I was going to update everyone on the progress.
All platform builds (win32, osx64, linux32 and contrib linux64) are complete. Repacks are done for Linux32 and OSX64. Currently doing the Win32 repacks.
I believe the ETA (*emphasis on the E*) should be around Thursday/Friday, provided there are no surprises (update process failing, update verification problems, etc..).
I just (after a false start) triggered the builds for SeaMonkey 2.49.2.
Theoretically speaking, there shouldn’t be any issues (touch wood) as it’s pretty much an update to the code for 2.49.1. and with no major infra changes required, it *should* be ok (did I mention touch wood?).
Will keep everyone updated as soon as I get some feedback from the builders.
