Weekly Status Report, W50/2008

Here's a summary of SeaMonkey/Mozilla-related work I've done in week 50/2008 (December 8 - 14, 2008):
  • Build System:
    My fixup to in-package directory names with "pretty" package names also made 1.9.1 now.
  • Misc Development:
    I started to work on removing the "what's related" sidebar, which is probably mostly unused, has privacy implications, and unmaintained binary code. For everyone who still wants it, the version that one saw there is still available as the Alexa sidebar add-on.
  • Releases:
    SeaMonkey 2.0 Alpha 2 was released this week, I also did some more work for preparing 1.1.14, still targeted for December 16th.
  • Places History:
    I landed some small cleanups for the places code I checked in the week before, and UI-reviewed the comeback of grouping in the history window Neil coded up along with further cleanup of code we imported from Firefox but didn't need in this form in our history-only view of places.
    Additionally, mork history is finally gone from the Mozilla trees now.
    Following our places landing, a few places tests were broken in SeaMonkey, I could find fixes for all but one test in that location, which has its own problems being located in places, but testing a toolkit feeds fix by using Firefox-specific feed code.
  • L10n:
    We released 11 experimental langpacks for SeaMonkey 2.0 Alpha 2, thanks to the work of the L10n community. I still hope for being able to have fully localized builds some time soon.
  • German L10n:
    I once again tried to keep up with current development to keep German L10n green.
  • Various Discussions:
    Toolbar customization, places prefs, Get All Messages, test failures, l10n.ini and 1.9.1, 2.0a2 feedback, planet, etc.

Things are really moving now in SeaMonkey 2.0 land, and the new version of the integrated Internet suite starts to take shape. If everything goes the way it looks to go right now, Alpha 3 should deliver a very good amount of interesting features and most of what we want to achieve for this version. Things like allowing resuming of downloads across sessions, smoother password managing, session restore, toolbar customization, or tabbed mail are all trying to join the reworked history and urlbar autocomplete as new features in the next alpha. I hope all of those and perhaps even more things can really make it there, so we can show off where the suite is going in the near future.
