Weekly Status Report, W24/2008

Here's a summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 24/2008 (June 9 - 15, 2008):

A discussion about the status of SeaMonkey Composer came up on newsgroups, and it's pretty interesting: I'm reading a lot about different people and groups using and promoting SeaMonkey Composer for designing simple HTML pages, I heard of teachers using it in classes, and recently, even a German publishing house sent a request for putting SeaMonkey on their book CD as they described how to use it in the book.
Composer is becoming one of the strong arguments for SeaMonkey nowadays, it seems, especially in the light of all the spinoffs either being unmaintained (Nvu), unfinished ("Mozilla Composer") or still based on old code (KompoZer). We have the only stable release of Composer code that's based on Gecko 1.8(.1), and the only development series of it that works with 1.9.x.
Unfortunately, the Composer-specific code is also not actively developed (a lot of the functionality is shared with mailcompose and Midas though), while we still maintain it to a state that it stays working and can be released even in SeaMonkey 2. If someone comes up and works on improving this code, possibly even porting improvements from Nvu/KompoZer to our code, it would be very much appreciated and find a good base of users.
