Weekly Status Report, W04/2011

Here's a summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 04/2011 (January 24 - 30, 2011):

Jens has made his "InvisibleSmiley" quite visible when he landed built-in Sync support in SeaMonkey trunk in the last days of the week, which now makes exchange of all browser data like bookmarks, history, form data, tabs, etc. easy between different installations of SeaMonkey, Firefox, and even mobile Firefox - and you can even access your browser data on an iPhone with the "Firefox Home" app (just see "Firefox" and "SeaMonkey" as more or less synonyms when it comes to Sync, the service is operated and written by Mozilla primarily for Firefox, but SeaMonkey is just using exactly the same code)!
With this and having some testing of the nightlies that followed this landing, we should be ready for doing a SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 2 very soon now and probably will get it going this week still, with a large number of improvements since the first beta.
I'm also looking forward to meet as many Mozillians and people from other communities as possible at FOSDEM in Brussels!

Hi KaiRo. Firefox 4.0 Beta 11 is almost ready. Candidate builds for FF4.0b11 are starting to show up today. You may want to ship Seamonkey 2.1 beta 2 about the same time Firefox 4.0 beta 11 gets released.

No, we want to ship SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 2 when it's ready. And this is not my job any more anyhow, as Callek is the release engineer now.

problem with Add-ons Manager in SM2.1b2 when resizing the SM addons manager browser window to smaller dimensions or when using lower screen resolutions like 800x600:
the Options, Disable and Remove buttons are missing or are not displayed.

If I make the Seamonkey addons manager window bigger or set the screen resolution to 1024x768 or higher, those three buttons are there.

Firefox 4.0 beta 11 does not have this problem. Those three buttons stay there, even when adjusting the size of the Firefox addons manager window either big or small.

I think I'll file a bug report on this problem.

Please file bug reports, yes. Still, SeaMonkey 2.1b2 is using exactly the same add-ons manager code as Firefox 4.0b11, so any difference sounds weird to me.
