Weekly Status Report, W44/2009

Here's a summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 44/2009 (October 26 - November 1, 2009):

The amount of posts in the SeaMonkey support newsgroup is almost mindboggling right now, and thanks to the team (thank you for supporting us!) are mixing with migration problem from 1.x, unclarities about changed feature sets, as well as other questions and problems.
The step from 1.x to 2.0 is rather large, we know that, and migration is something people don't test repeatedly, so it was clear we would run into a certain amount of problems there, that's just unavoidable. I'm pretty happy with the low amount of real bugs that have popped up so far, though I'd be happy if I would have the time to prepare an update parallel to the crash-fix Firefox 3.5.5 release that's upcoming late this or early next week - unfortunately, the slowness of our build machines, some time needed for community QA, and my vacation starting Saturday leaves too little time to do such a cycle in time and we'll need to wait with fixing those somewhat higher-profile crashes only in December in a 2.0.1 update.
I hope our users can do with what we have in 2.0 until then - and of course, we'll work on improving this product even further, with 2.0.* stability and security updates as well as a 2.1 development cycle and release next year.

Like most I have been forced to revert back to SM1
Hello Robert,

I guess I have been labeled a troublemaker so that is why I am now completely ignored. That has never been my intention. But I have been treated very abruptly by you and in the case of a Mozilla browser developer very rudely others in the past.

Though I thank you for the one response I did get from you since I know you are very busy.

Since I rely heavily on the password manager and although they migrated, they don't enter into any webpages. Since they are my only record for these sites then I had to got back to SM1.

On this and other concerns and except for one minor question NO ONE had responded.

If this continues then I will be forced to consider SM a dinosaur that had gone extinct and be forced to move to Thunderbird and another browser.

I really appreciate the time and effort you and everyone on the the development team has spent, but I am a user, and if I can't use it then everyones time is wasted and it would be better to let SM die like Netscape and Mozilla.

Best on you vacation,

JW 'Yawn' vanLohuizen
