Weekly Status Report, W44/2008

Here's a summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 44/2008 (October 27 - November 2, 2008):

At MozCamp Europe in Barcelona I had some interesting talk with a number of people, including Ian Neal (IanN), about SeaMonkey badly needing a feed reader and probably just moving most of what Thunderbird has to a shared place and porting the UI integration to mailnews being a good idea. The opinion most people seemed to agree with was that using the same code and get it to work would be better than waiting for improvements we'd like to see in that code, as once it works in both apps, we are both interested in getting those improvements into it incrementally.
What I didn't expect but much appreciated was that Ian picked up the bug and created a patch for doing this work of moving code that can be shared and integrating it with SeaMonkey! With this, we probably will have feed reading support in SeaMonkey mailnews soon, even though we will not have feed detection in the browser linked to it just yet - that will be happening (probably with an intermediate preview and reader selection page) as a next step though. Thanks a lot to Ian for this work!
