Weekly Status Report, W11/2008
- Preference Panels Work:
I could check in the reworked and ported appearance prefs main panel, which now includes the again-working UI language switching option, removed the old language switching panel and updated help for those changes and the content preference panel.
For this panel, I created an additional patch for the option to load website icons for bookmarks.
"Appearance" is now the first section (other than the debug options) of preferences that has completely been ported to the new prefwindow.
Additionally, I did work on porting the advanced preferences main panel to the new prefwindow.
- SeaMonkey 1.1.9 Release:
Another security release is schedule for the 1.1.x branch later this month, so I started the release process by generating candidates after Bruno "Aqualon" Escherl helped us to fix the one remaining blocker we had on the SeaMonkey-specific side. There are nearly 70 fixed bugs for this release, most of them fixing security/stability issues, so I hope we'll get good testing of 1.1.9 candidates to be sure we have no regressions in the final release.
- Source L10n:
I could check in the fix for generating automatic updates for Mac L10n builds, so we should get localized (full) updates on all platforms now.
- German L10n:
Mainly typo fixes this week in German L10n, but I also kept up with string changes and additions in SeaMonkey (for example from my own appearance panel work).
- Various Discussions:
build issue due to suboptimal gcc version check, California traveling, GTK "dropmarker" arrows, 1.9 and Thunderbird/MailNews planning, etc.
At this place I want to officially congratulate our SeaMonkey Council member Mark Banner (Standard8 on IRC) to his new job at Mozilla Messaging. He'll still be active in the SeaMonkey community, his main work area will probably stay centered around the address book, which is shared between Thunderbird and SeaMonkey, and he'll probably be the best bridge bewteen the SeaMonkey and Thunderbird teams we can have - especially when it comes to the organizational side of things, where he'll probably hear about what's going on in both projects.
In the light of my view of SeaMonkey and Mozilla Messaging, I'm convinced this is an additional step for improving cooperation between the projects, and wish Mark the best for his exciting new job!
