Weekly Status Report, W18/2009

Here's a summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 18/2009 (April 27 - May 3, 2009):

Theoretically, we would already have or be about to freeze for SeaMonkey 2.0 Beta 1 right now. While this is being pushed out a bit due to our friends from Thunderbird not being ready to freeze for the next beta themselves, and us still missing the two larger features of download manager and tabmail, things start to feel more and more like being in beta phase. The feed integration suite is feature complete with having detection, preview and an internal reader for feeds now. Some minor polish might still be in order before final, but that part is surely beta-worthy now. I hope we get the last missing features as well as the better Mac theme in very soon so we can officially designate SeaMonkey 2.0 to be in beta and feature-complete, which will be a quite important milestone. Stay tuned here for more news on that and where where we're heading after that step!

New RSS interface?
I saw something new a few days ago (in the then-latest Sm trunk nightly, of course, and on Linux if it makes any difference): after clicking an RSS icon at the right end of the URL bar and clicking one menu item (on the http://vim.wikia.com/ site), instead of immediately adding a subfolder of "News & Blogs" in the mailer, I got a browser page with a header proposing to subscribe with either "News and Blogs" or some Web service (Yahoo etc.) and a checkbox (which I left checked) to always use News & Blogs to subscribe to RSS feeds. Is this "new" this week, did I fail to notice a news item in some earlier week, or does it mean this RSS feed was in a different format than those to which I subscribed before?

This is what I mention in my entry with "preview" for feeds, it was the last missing piece for the feed integration, as it now allows everyone to see what's in the feed and to select if and how one wants to subscribe to it.
