Weekly Status Report, W42/2009

Here's a summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 42/2009 (October 12 - 18, 2009):

I hope that finally our builds for SeaMonkey 2.0 are done - we'll see how well RC 2 holds up in testing this week, but chances are good that next Tuesday will be the big day and we can go gold, just converting those exact build to the final ones. A tremendous development effort from all around our team went into this release in the 3½ years we've now been working on it, and the What's New list in the release notes only shows the tip of the iceberg. This is the first really major release from our project after we've been releasing fixed-up, slightly improved and rebranded version of the old Mozilla suite for quite some time.
This time we ship a new suite, a modern reincarnation of the original idea, and completely done by the volunteer team of the SeaMonkey project. Thanks to everyone who helped us to come so far, every one of those people in our community can be proud of him/herself these days.

Now let's test the hell out of it this week and then actually release it - are you with me? ;-)

Three and a half years already! Wow, time goes fast! I can remember when the first suiterunner binaries became available for download (only Windows and Mac at first, then Linux too, but still 1.5a at the time) and it seems much closer than that... I must be getting old. ;-)

Well, congratulations to all those who helped make it happen, and let's hope we'll be able to feast it next Tuesday with a big cake and two candles on it! People, block that day in your agendas!

Well done.
I just wanted to say a well done to everyone involved in the SeaMonkey project. As you say it's entirely volunteer and you've put so much work into modernising the codebase. Unfortunately I've moved on from Mozilla Suite/SeaMonkey but my sister and girlfriend still use it, recently got the former to run one of your betas, much improved. Now if only we can get OpenSearch support :)

Thanks again.

A big thanks to the Seamonkey Project team
I longing for the final version and have to admit that I have to use this RC on some webites (which I can trust) because my 1.1.18 hasn't been working with them for some days. These websites work fine with the Firefox, but won't work again with that klickibunti mainstream browser.
