That is because those release notes are actually designed for 2.1 final.

What changes were made
> between rc1&  rc2?

* The bug where Themes would be marked incompatible on first launch is 
now fixed. (This is what caused the rc2)

Also Fixed as Ridealongs:
* Bug 657215 - Default search engine does not show as selected in 
Preferences
* Bug 656886 - Context menu broken in non-browser sidebars
* New Locales for 2.1: en-GB, tr.

Known Issues in 2.1rc2 -- only (We'll spin a 2.1 final, separately which 
fixes this)
* Debug & QA extension is shipped by accident.
* SeaMonkey effective version is set as 2.1pre

Both those issues were due to a mistake in releng. (Same underlying 
mistake) luckily easy to fix, and we can move forward with everything 
with only minimal "internal" testing.

You're welcome, though I forgot one issue that is fixed.

In 2.1rc2 Build 1 we noticed that optional extensions were not packaged 
in l10n-repacks of the windows installer. (And likely not in the l10n 
updates of windows installer, but didn't bother to check that give the 
first issue).

We had a large delay in building build2 due to this issue, and with huge 
thanks to nthomas for helping to diagnose, and KaiRo for feedback and 
help on the procedural issues we got that fixed for what is now our rc2.

So I'm not certain if that existed in 2.1rc1, (we didn't notice at 
first, but it surely could have [probably did]). But either way, it is 
fixed.

world:

Yeah, this is working now. MUCH better. Doesn't feel buggy at all. 
However...

Javascript Debugger is still marked as "incompatible with 2.1pre". I 
even tried uninstalling it, and then reinstalling 2.1rc2 over itself (in 
custom mode) to reinstall it, to make sure I was getting the "right" 
version. No dice: still marked as "incompatible." This wouldn't keep me 
from using 2.1 (I don't do Javascript programming, therefore the 
debugger is not an essential tool for me), but it's still annoying.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the version being set as "2.1pre"?

Some third-party extensions are tagged as "incompatible" too, but that's 
to be expected, I guess -- some of them, like Enigmail, might just be 
waiting for the official final release. Others, unfortunately, seem to 
have been abandoned by their authors. Well, I guess it's wait and see 
which of them will be updated...

I think that this might be due to the fix for bug 627240, which packages 
the built-in extensions somewhere where they won't be seen by the 
extensions manager, except immediately after a SeaMonkey version change, 
and even then, only if there is a version increase in the extension itself.

If you can't wait for SeaMonkey 2.1, try the following with the 2.1rc2 
you just installed:

1. "Uninstall" JavaScript Debugger, ChatZilla, Debug&QA UI, and DOM 
Inspector, and restart SeaMonkey: the "old" versions of these extensions 
will now be missing in the addons manager. (This step is not strictly 
necessary for ChatZilla, or for any extension whose version number has 
changed.) -- If you can't uninstall them (because the Uninstall button 
is greyed out) then don't reinstall SeaMonkey over itself, but uninstall 
and reinstall it, to clear away any files which have disappeared between 
one version and the next. (This leaves your profile untouched.)

2. In about:config, set the preference extensions.lastAppVersion to 
2.1b99 then restart SeaMonkey again: it should check your extensions for 
compatibility, and after that these four extensions should be back -- 
but with all the bugfixes which they received in this new version. In 
particular, when you launch ChatZilla, you should see 0.9.87 at the top 
of its client tab.


Best regards,
Tony.

I don't know about 2.1RC2 (which identifies itself incorrectly) but in 
general this is covered by the Released Notes, section Known Issues. For 
questions about this, Enigmail and more, see the 2.1 FAQ:

SeaMonkey 1.1.18 vs SeaMonkey 2.1 (if/when 2.1 is released)
I will clearly state that I am not a computer whiz...thus, I have a number of concerns regarding SeaMonkey 2.0 installation on my system. I have been reading the many SeaMonkey 2.0 messages on this newsgroup with some concern about my ability to fix the problems that could occur with the installation of 2.0. It seems that the move from 1.1.18 to 2.0 is not happening without a number of glitches along the way.

SeaMonkey 2.35 release notes
In the SM 2.35 release notes, it says: After creating a news account through clicking a news URL, the MailNews account wizard may be broken (the account type will always be News). To work around the problem, set the mail.server.serverX.valid pref (where X is the internal number of the corresponding news account) to true in about:config. There is no setting for "mail.server.serverX.valid" in about:config, for either mail or newsgroups. Why would you not just change "mail.server.serverX.type" from nntp to pop3 (or imap)?
