<< Dropping 1.9.2, Going 1.9.3 for SeaMonkey 2.1 | The roads I take... | How To Drive Away Contributors >>

Weekly Status Report, W07/2010

Here's a summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 07/2010 (February 15 - 21, 2010):

After the SeaMonkey 2.1 Gecko decision, I think we're now on a good way to getting actual progress on our code for this next version. Following the platform, we unfortunately will have to drop support for Mac OS X 10.4 "Tiger" as well in that release, but we hope that Mozilla 1.9.1 and therefore SeaMonkey 2.0.* will be maintained long enough to get a large amount of those users transition to newer systems - if they can't afford new hardware, they should possibly look into converting their system to Linux, which is being maintained and which we can support more easily as well.
While we can't change those platform decisions, we can change our own code, and we are currently starting to work on more and more parts of it for this future version - and your help is wanted to improve it even further!

Yes, i know this is not the place:

I've just tried to give a Print Preview on this page and i got a WTF face xD
http://enavas.blogspot.com/2007/12/wlaninject-una-herramienta-para.html

Print Preview gets 3 pages, but page 2 and 3 are almost empty... and vertical scroll bar is awful (very thick).

Sorry to report these things here, feel free to delete this post.

And regards for this jewell ;)

I forgot this, sorry:

And the most important thing is... the text is incomplete !

It ends on first page on Print preview, but there's more text in webpage.

Tiger Support
Thanks for expressing your intention to keep 1.9.1 / SeaMonkey 2.0.x up-to-date for as long as possible. The browser support for older operating systems need not be the latest and greatest feature-wise, but security and stability updates go a long way towards goodwill to the SeaMonkey Council from Tiger users. (Most of my machines are already on Leopard, but I want to have a secure browser on my older machines that don't support Tiger for as long as possible.)

@Jota.Ce:
Please post bug reports on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ and other feedback about SeaMonkey itself to the community as pointed out in http://www.seamonkey-project.org/community

This blog here is about me personally, and I don't have any connection with the actual features or problems you are talking about.

also Jota.Ce, you could post the Print Preview problem you encountered in Seamonkey on the Seamonkey forum page at the MozillaZine Forum site:

I dind't want to ruin your blog, i'm sorry... delete those 2 posts if you want.

I'll try the latest link (thanks EP), cause it seems to not require login.

I hate logins. I hate registering.

Thanks for your work !

@Jota.Ce, the Seamonkey support page on the mozillaZine forum site is better because that section allows anonymous or guest posting, thus no need to sign up.

@KaiRo: I've just found out that Thunderbird 2.0.0.24 (Gecko 1.8.1.24) could be released on Friday, March 12, 2010. read here:
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases/Thunderbird_2.0.0.24

So when TB 2.0.0.24 comes out, the Seamonkey Council should start preparing a release of Seamonkey 1.1.19 soon.

EP: I', following all that very closely, and we will do a quite hidden release of 1.1.19 and announce the end of the line of SeaMonkey 1.x at the same time.

Before Seamonkey 1.1.19 comes out, make sure Bug 515905 gets fixed:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=515905

It would be embarrassing if SM 1.1.19 came out and the "Get New Themes" menu command goes to a non-existent site where Seamonkey 1.x users are unable to download themes.

This will not be fixed any more. We will not put any minute more than needed into SeaMonkey 1.x any more, it's dead. SeaMonkey 1.1.19 is a zombie release, we're just announcing the end of the line of SeaMonkey 1.x with it.
