Weekly Status Report, W19/2011
- Mozilla work / crash-stats:
This was the first week of working full-time for Mozilla - and I now have secured kairo -at- mozilla.com as an email alias for me.
I filed a bug for getting the new channel and duplicate info available in the CSVs that e.g. my experimental "explosiveness" reports are based on.
Of course, I continued to look into crashes that those reports turned up, making sure those are reported and looked into if possible.
Discussed the topic of topcrashers per build (and not just per version), possibly more things we need with the new beta setup.
- SeaMonkey Build System:
Some more review and coordination work going along with Callek producing 2.1 final (as RC1 for now).
- SeaMonkey L10n:
More looking into sign-offs for 2.1 and problematic locales for 2.1, while Callek went to do a build2.
- German L10n:
Updated website for SeaMonkey 2.1 RC 1, including relnotes, and sent announcements for it.
Even more work on getting LCARStrek to work with Firefox 4.
- Various Discussions/Topics:
Socorro throttling by channel, hyphenation dictionaries and download sizes, 5.0b1 data, L10n and jumping onto moving trains, mozilla-random/-stagig, Firefox 3.5 EOL plan, go/no-go-decisions, web application runtimes and memory usage, MeeGo N900 DE testing, etc.
We're surely in exciting times, things around me at least are moving fast nowadays - from devoting my full work time to one of the most amazing (or awesome?) organizations in this world via my friends at SeaMonkey shipping the release candidate for the final 2.1 version (and hoping it can be converted to the final release straight away once it's tested enough) to the new fast release process really taking off with the next "train" about to leave and the "beta" channel starting to get populated with post-4.0 builds. And great stuff landing on the trees for those next versions as well! I'm in the middle of progress and innovation for the Open Web - and I love it!
And dear reader, don't forget to support all that by testing Aurora and/or SeaMonkey 2.1 (current in RC)!

I now see candidate builds of Seamonkey 2.1 RC2 posted today on the Mozilla FTP site. Looks like the final release of Seamonkey 2.1 will be pushed back several days, perhaps around Memorial Day weekend.
FF 5 is behind the door (24.06.2011); will Seamonkey 2.2 see the world with FF 5? or will arrive latter again ?
@Thiago: Seamonkey 2.2 will be based on Firefox 6.0, not 5.0. I know because I'm beta testing a recent SM 2.2a1pre nightly build and it identifies itself as version 6.0a1. So, no, Seamonkey 2.2 will not be released around the same time Firefox 5.0 comes out in late June.

Ok, official answer:
2.1 == Gecko 2 (Firefox 4)
2.2 == Gecko 5 (Firefox 5)
2.3 == Gecko 6 (Firefox 6)
2.4 == Gecko 7 (Firefox 7)
with the following caveat, "we reserve to right to change version numbers that correspond to our releases at our discretion"
But there will be releases to carry along with the various Gecko versions. The part that may have confused you, is that up until a week or so ago, we did not even have hourly builds on those other Gecko's, and even as I write this, Gecko 5,6 and 7 are all reporting as SeaMonkey 2.2 in version number.
