Clker-GrafkThe SeaMonkey-Project is living thanks to contributions of the community, by “manpower” or by financial support. Any contribution, also small amounts by Flattrs, are appreciated. You can donate via the SeaMonkey e. V. donation page or via the private donation initiative I started few days ago. The reasons why I started my private Donation campaign and why I currently can’t recommend donations to the SeaMonkey e. V. you can find here. You will reach my private SeaMonkey Donation Page (not initiated by or under responsibility of SeaMonkey or mozilla) with a click here or on the image at the right.

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Additionally to the very outdated “official” Release Notes here you find some more information concerning changes with SeaMonkey 2.39.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The “Known -Issues“- list is outdated, here an attempt for a more realistic overview.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 And many of  them are UNCONFIRMED or outdated (have been fixed in between).

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.

New seamonkey-2.35.en-US.win32-20150626.zip available

NewNightly35Build details:

  • Built of mozilla-esr38 + THUNDERBIRD_38_VERBRANCH. Note Official 2.35 release will be built off mozilla-release 38 (Probably 38.0.6)
  • DOM Inspector built off changeset 80c195824f1e. Version shows as 2.0.16pre. I have uploaded 2.0.16 to AMO so SeaMonkey should update to that version if configured.
    • http://hg.mozilla.org/dom-inspector/graph/80c195824f1e
  • Chatzilla built off changeset c65366e47dd2. Version shows as 0.9.91.1 . This is a problem because SeaMonkey may update to the version on AMO (0.9.91.1.1-signed).
    • http://hg.mozilla.org/chatzilla/graph/c65366e47dd2
