Adrian Kalla again contributes unofficial localized installers and language packs in various languages for WINDOWS and Linux: Trunk & Beta & Aurora & Release .
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.
The 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.

Despite all big problems, we have a first unofficial 2.44a1 SeaMonkey Build – even localized with several languages 🙂

we need some help here!
In an edit-box (for example: comment box here in the Blog) ‘rightclick → Languages → Download more dictionaries …’ will lead to an AMO Website with a list of available dictionaries (and Language Packs). This page urgently needs some maintenance: Continue reading
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.
On that page Adrian Kalla contributes localized installers.exe and languagepacks.xpi in various languages.
Only for testing, you will use those builds on your own risk.
here you can read why I started a new attempt at Newsgroup mozilla.addons.user-experience (on news server news.mozilla.org to get something like an add-on compatibility data base with the help of the SeaMonkey users community.
On the same Wiki page you also will find some “how to use” hints.
I hope I won’t be the only contributer again ;-.)
On mozilla.support.seamonkey Ed Mullen asked 2015-07-07 the question from heading. I tried to ask Bugzilla for an answer by comparing some activity parameters with numbers of year before and 5 years ago (2010). All values for first half-year. Found numbers are listed in table below, queries for 2015 are linked in the left column:
I think new reports and changed to FIXED (bug fixes) no not need explication. The next parameters are indicators for (user-) QA activity. The table shows that 2015 we have only half as much activity left as SeaMonkey had 2010. But compared to year before it even looks some better.
And we have some additional glimmers of hope:
Of course that’s not a substitution for security patches coming in time, and we still have the Sync problem (and others).
But be aware: it depends on you and your contribution how successful SeaMonkey can be. You think a normal user can’t help? That’s not true, as a first step you can try to confirm (or disprove) some of our UNCONFIRMED SeaMonkey bug Reports, like I do here (you may add me to CC if your are not sure whether your investigations are exhaustive). I hope to find your signature in Bugzilla, soon … . 🙂
- 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.
- 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).
