SeaMonkey 2.1

The SeaMonkey project is proud to present SeaMonkey 2.1: The new major 
release of the all-in-one Internet suite is available for download now! 
Building on the same Mozilla platform as Firefox 4, it delivers the

- Personas let you choose from thousands of easy to install themes,
   giving you a more personalized browsing experience.
- An optional search bar gives access to OpenSearch search engines and
   suggestions.
- The new Data Manager unifies management of permissions, cookies,
   passwords and form data.
- Improved handling of plugins, including the ability to delete Flash
   cookies and survive plugin crashes.

vERY NICE!

Items I found enticing:
"# You can now drag and drop downloads, e.g. from the Download Manager to the desktop.
# SeaMonkey now shows "doorhangers" for notifications like remembering log-in 
passwords or after installing an extension.
# The new DoNotTrack HTTP header is supported (configurable in Preferences).
# A page with Troubleshooting Information (about:support) and the option to restart 
in Safe Mode are now available from the Help menu.
# Loading the URL about:memory now shows how much memory is used by different parts 
of SeaMonkey.
# SeaMonkey should now support more websites that previously appeared to only work 
with Firefox (configurable in Preferences).

Has the Update problem noted in bug #662677 been fixed?  If not, will it
be fixed soon?

Yes. (Just note the mention in Release Notes about downgrading BACK to 
2.0.14 if that is ever desired)

The documentation, I am unsure if it is fixed. But you should not need 
to worry about that.

If you mean the "Extensions installed on updates..." no it has not been 
fixed, will not be for 2.1.

We *may* fix it, but I think the solution will be more of a "mark 
extension [x] disabled if you don't want it" rather than "don't stuff 
into application folder", since we now push the extensions to the 
profile anyway.

Which means that if you install 2.1 from scratch, including these 
extensions, run once, and then uninstall, and re-install without the 
extensions, you'll then STILL have those extensions in your profile, 
since they install to profile on first launch.

In Windows XP, I requested the properties for the SeaMonkey 2.1
executable seamonkey.exe.  On the Version tab of the Properties window,
I see 3 different version numbers:

*  At the top of the tab, File version: 2.0.1.4176

*  Under "Other version information", File version: 2.0.1

*  Under "Other version information", Product version: 2.1

No.  I meant the ability to update from a LOCAL .mar file.  See the bug
report at <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=662677> and read
the comments, especiall starting at #13.

While the bug report itself is closed because the Wiki documentation has
been updated, the procedures did not work to update SM 2.1RC1 to
SM2.1RC2 using the partial .mar file.  I had expected a new SeaMonkey
bug report on this, but none has appeared yet.

Nice work!

All we need now is a few non-sucky themes and updated add-ons. But overall
quite nice. Congratulations to the team and thanks for all the hard work.

Re-Read my answer.

The complete.mar works, the partial.mar will give you errors if you 
don't install certain optional extensions. (in a production version of 
SeaMonkey that downloads the updates itself, you'll get the complete mar 
when the partial fails).

If you did install all optional files, then the partial works.

I won't be changing the way the partial is generated here.

I believe this relates to the Gecko installation that we built with, but 
I'm not 100% certain there.

This would be our version

What are the optional extensions?  I might already have some.

In the installer, there is the custom install method.

It lets you chose whether or not to install
* Venkman (JS Debugger)
* Chatzilla
* DOMi (Inspector)
* Debug&QA [pre/alpha/beta builds only]

If those extensions are missing from the *app* dir, the partial you are 
trying to install will fail. But on 2.1 at least, they are installed 
into the profile *from* the app folder, so you may already have them in 
your profile, but that won't affect the success/failure of the partial 
update.

As I said, the complete update will succeed.

Thanks for the link!

"Will companies honor my Do Not Track preference?"

"Companies are starting to support Do Not Track, but you may not notice 
any changes initially. We are actively working with companies that have 
started to implement Do Not Track, with others who have committed to 
doing so soon."

So it doesn't 'block' tracking, it merely posts a flag that says you
would not prefer to be tracked - and relies upon the cooperativeness 
and/or integrity of the company/service/site to honor your request?

This is one of the reasons that I never use google but do my searches
with startpage.com - they don't give the trackers access to search
data from the get-go.

Of course once one is on a site startpage cannot control what happens,
which is where I was hoping this app might have found a way to block -
rather than merely request blocking - of privacy-invasive tracking.

I can agree to that, while it is possible to go back, it's a process (at least 
on Linux) .

A few related questions:
- is the upgrade from 1.x gone? It was noted as being a conversion feature to be
   removed from 2.1 and later. I ask only because I didn't see a hint to upgrade
   to 2.0.14 then 2.1 if the direct path isn't supported.
- Having SM call itself Firefox solves problems with broken sites, but it will
   result in SM vanishing from browser stats, won't it? Meaning sites are less
   likely to make any effort to support it.
- is 2.1.1pre daily newer or a fork?

Overall a good job, although there is a serious lack of themes. Also a lack of 
documentation of correct generation of themes.

Then copy somewhere the profiles.
go to Add/Remove Programs and remove the SM 2.0.10
Install the new SM 2.1

SM 1.x used a different update system (you were only notified of updates 
but could not let it automatically download and apply them, not to speak 
of partial update files) so the upgrade path there is to download 2.1 
from the website (or FTP).

The only part that was lost post-2.0 that I know of is the ability to 
migrate download history. See:

 From my experience, sites haven't made any effort to support it anyway. 
Quite the contrary, sites like Google are now starting to only support 
the last few versions of the major browsers...

> - is 2.1.1pre daily newer or a fork?

2.1.1pre is what the 2.1 branch nightlies were called. Generation of 2.0 
and 2.1 nightlies has been stopped, though, since SeaMonkey will join 
the rapid release train with SM 2.2 (coming some time after Firefox 5, 
which is scheduled for June 21).

I just wanted to make sure that something was not forgotten when
configuring the installation file.  2.0.1 was also a very early
SeaMonkey 2.0.x.

Nice work!

All we need now is a few non-sucky themes and updated add-ons. But overall
quite nice. Congratulations to the team and thanks for all the hard work.

Hi,

The new 2.1 is generally fine. However, instead of clicking on Bookmarks 
and seeing them,  I now get a new format involving several additional 
steps before I can see the bookmarks listed. Is there any way that I can 
have the bookmarks' appearance revert to the older and better method?

Thanks.

One question: With 2.1, I keep SM as a task bar icon at the bottom of my Win 
7 screen. But since going to the full new release of 2.1 it's been opening 
new task bar icons for everything, all the way on the other side of the task 
bar, instead of keeping everything within that same icon. What setting do I 
need to change to keep all new tabs opened, within the same task bar icon?

Hi,

Once more I want to ask you about a problem with 2.1. In the older 
editions, clicking on cookies displayed all of them, and deleting them 
could be done with one further click. Now, in the new 2.1, cookies are 
only displayed by domains, and deletion involves many steps of clicking 
on a domain, and deleting each domain's cookies one at a time. So, I 
sometimes wind up clicking on a hundred times or more to delete cookies, 
whereas with the older system, two clicks sufficed.

Is there any way to get 2.1 to revert to the former and better cookies 
method?

Thank you.

This is part of Bug 658075.  See
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=658075>.

Unfortunately, I get the impression that the developers do not really
want to change the design.

There were a number of bugs associated with the old design of the
Bookmarks Manager.  The developers chose to resolve those problems by
putting bookmarks into places.sqlite, a database instead of an HTML file.

If you merely want to see your bookmarks (not actually edit them), you
can still create an HTML file.  With Bookmarks Manager open, go to the
menu bar and select [Tools > Export HTML].  Navigate to where you want
to save them.  With multiple profiles, I save them each in its profile
directory.

You can also automate the exporting by setting the preference variable
browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML to "true".  This exports every time you
terminate SeaMonkey.  You can do this with about:config, but I prefer
putting
	user_pref("browser.bookmarks.autoExportHTML", true);
into user.js because I can then add a comment as to what that means and
why I'm doing it.

Right-click on the OLD taskbar icon, select "unpin."

I'm checking Johannes Schellen's site 
(http://mozilla-themes.schellen.net/) regularly to see if/when he will 
update his Pinball theme.

Meanwhile, overlaying a Personas mini-theme (http://www.getpersonas.com) 
on the default theme can help. Yes, most of them are very "busy," but a 
few are understated and classy. Look at the "abstract" section.

Is this file portable among different OS' like Mac OS X, Windows, and 
Linux/Debian? That is how I updated my SM2's bookmarks manually.

Doing this, it's nice to have "Restartless Restart" loaded, to force 
changes to appear when you add/edit/delete bookmarks.  -JW

I don't know if the places.sqlite file is portable.

My recommendation would be to export it to an HTML file, which is ASCII
and should be portable.  You then import it back into places.sqlite on
the other platforms.

It is, at least as long as you use it with the same (SM/platform) version.

I wouldn't do that. You will lose any information that is stored in 
Places but cannot be stored in bookmarks.html, like tags and favicons 
(and maybe more). It depends whether you need that information, of 
course, and places.sqlite contains more than just bookmarks.

If you really want to exchange just bookmarks but not lose any 
information, either use the JSON export/import (Save/Restore), or Sync.

With integrated Sync, You shouldn't bother about that. Simply set up 
Your sync account and add devices, and they all will have all You

Dang. This will be a problem for me since I manually copy my bookmarks 
and other files (addressbooks and mails) between computers' SM2 (do keep 
the same versions updated on all machines). Why is places.sqlite keeping 
specific details like OS'?

I really don't want to use Sync. Oy, export/import sounds more work. Grr.

My favorite add-ons are not up-to-date for 2.1, but I'll stay with the latest 
version.  Everything else seems to be working fine for me.

So I'll be waiting for the updates to:
Download Helper
Prefbar
Quote Colors
Show IP
Mail User Agent

Are you saying Prefbar extension doesn't work in v2.1? I thought it did 
on its home page. It must be for the prereleases then. :(

I wouldn't hold my breath for Display Mail User-Agent, it seems to have 
been abandoned -- version 1.6.6 had problems in Seamonkey for months but 
wasn't fixed. But I managed to update the maxversion in 1.6.5. and it 
seem to work OK in SM 2.1. (Now that 2.1 is final, I might have a look 
at 1.6.6 again, since it seemed to work in Thunderbird...)

Quote Colors is in a similar situation, but again, it seems to work with 
just a change in the maxversion.

If Philip Chee is interested, I can mail him my hacked versions of those 
and a couple other extensions that seem to be working fine in SM 2.1

The release version has maxversion 2.1a3pre. Hacking it to 2.1.x should 
fix it.

OK, I will have to wait for SM2.1 upgrade then. I will go e-mail PrefBar 
about this so he can fix it ASAP.

Follow-up: DisplayMUA 1.6.6 (even hacking maxversion) is still 
incompatible with SeaMonkey, while a maxversion-hacked 1.6.5 seems to work.

I have hacked versions of the following extensions, which all seem to be 
working:

- Display Mail User Agent 1.6.5
- JSlib 0.1.366
- MailRedirect 0.7.6.3
- PrefBar 5.1.1
- QuoteColors 0.3

That's mine.  If you read the Description, you will see how to tweak
existing extensions to be compatible with SM 2.1.  Yes, it's a bother;
but I didn't want to wait for the extensions to be updated.

I set the maximum version values to 2.* .

Great!  I've already deleted the add-ons that don't work with 2.1.
And always installed from the web pages rather than downloading and saving the 
files.  Oh, well - I'll just have to wait for the updates.

Downloading and saving the file is always a good idea, if you need to 
revert back to an older version, because old versions are not always

I did this tweak for ALL extensions that reported as incompatible.
Since I have four profiles, I had to do this four times for each
extension (except for two that are installed only in one profile).

In your profile.

Find the extensions directory.  Do a search in that directory for all
instances of install.rdf.  Edit all of them to set em:maxVersion to 2.1.
 (I actually set it to 2.*)

Be careful.  Some extensions have different em:maxVersion values for
different applications.  If there is more than one em:maxVersion, be
sure to change it for SeaMonkey.

If your concern is privacy for Sync, you *can* use your own server. 
(even a local network server if that suited your fancy).

A bit more work to setup, but far far less work than export/import 
frequently or copying files around.

Without QuoteColors I simply could not read emails and Newsgroups.

Oh, so I can use my Linux's Samba sharing and FTP setups? Wait, isn't 
this the same as manual copies that I do with v2.x, v1.x, and previous 
suite products (bookmarks.html, *.mab, mail files, etc.)?

Do you have the link so I can read about it before doing it?

SyncToy. I haven't heard that one before, but it seems it is from MS and 
only for Windows.

So yeah, I have to close my SM2.0.x since some files (*.mab) aren't 
updated when in used. Others, like bookmarks.html and mail files, do get 
updated right away and aren't in used for me.

What add-ons did you delete that failed in v2.1? Just wondering so I can 
compare yours with mine. I think I will hold off my 2.1 upgrade until 
important extensions get updated first.

If I already have something bookmarked, does 2.1 refuse to bookmark it again?

I tried to bookmark http://denver.ebayclassifieds.com/
and it wouldn't add it to the bottom of the list like usual, so I searched 
and found it had already been done and was higher up in the list somewhere.

places.sqlite does not contain OS info (I never said that, quite the 
contrary if you care to re-read my reply). You just need to make sure to 
use it with equal versions (e.g. SM 2.1 and FF 4.0) since major app 
versions may come with updated SQLite version, which may contain 
incompatible changes (like from SM 2.0 to SM 2.1).

I never tried it myself, but AFAIK you need a Sync server:

> Wait, isn't this the same as manual copies that I do with v2.x, v1.x,

No, Sync transfers only the changes you make, and you can select what 
should be synced per profile and device (e.g. just sync bookmarks from 
one device, and everything from another).

On top of that, Sync encrypts all data *before* it leaves your client. 
So no-one except you can read it (or technically speaking, only those 
who have the Sync account password and Sync Key), not even Mozilla. 
That's why I see no point in setting up a custom server, but if you're 
really paranoid, you *can*.

That said, Sync is not able to sync address books (yet). Syncing mail is 
pointless, because IMAP is better suited for that. For news and feeds 
there was MailNews Sync, which probably could be made work with newer 
Sync versions again; it just needs some love.

Ah thank you for the details on how that work. Drats, no address books 
and mail files. Another reason why I do them manually. I only have about 
five files to copy over. :(

Ah. So I should have no problems to do manual copies if I keep all my 
SM2 the same versions (e.g., v2.1.0) which I already do with previous 
versions. I usually synchronize my data files on every PCs and then 
upgrade SM2.

At the end of the location bar, there's now a bookmark indicator. If the 
current page has been bookmarked, it turns green. If you click it then, 
it shows you where the bookmark is (and offers a few more options). If 
the current page has not been bookmarked, it turns grey, and clicking it 
then will just bookmark the page silently (under Unsorted Bookmarks).

Yeah, I know. Earlier, I thought the new bookmarks file format was not

Download Helper
Prefbar (Handy, but not really necessary)
Quote Colors (Very handy - helps keep e-mail reading in order)
Show IP (Handy)
Mail User Agent (Nice, but unnecessary, since 'view/message source' will reveal 
the info)

But, if you removed the add-on via Tools/add-on manager the directory that 
housed that extension will be empty.

You can redownload the xpi here without
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/addons/67148/
An xpi is a zip archive, so you could unzip, modify the install.rdf,
rezip and install that way if you wanted to. Or just try installing from
the xpi & when it fails it may expand into the proper folder & then
modify the install.rdf.

Thanks. PrefBar would be important to me. I can hack it to work with SM 
v2.1, but I will wait for the official update. I can wait. No rush for 
me. :)

Just remember which ones you've hacked. Too many people run into 
problems later on, having forgot that they hacked the install.rdf 
themselves.

Actually, it's possible to do exactly the same things QuoteColors do by 
editing the preferences. I remember doing that in the old, old days of 
Mozilla Suite 1.0. But it's a lot of work.

As has been said: For many extensions, making them work in SM 2.1 is 
just a matter of editing the maxversion in the install.rdf file. I 
happen to have done so for a few extensions, but I don't have a website 
to make them available. The best I can do is to offer them to Philip 
Chee, since I don't think this group allows binaries.

I do & very good point. That is also why in this case I don't use
<em:maxVersion>2.*</em:maxVersion> and only use
<em:maxVersion>2.1</em:maxVersion>. For 2.2 I use a different profile &
then modify only to the version that I'm testing.

Ah, yes - I didn't realize that a re-install, even though it failed, would leave 
the load intact.  Downloaded the .xpi, went to the directory, changed the .rdf 
file and - viola - a restart of SM showed the add-on now works.
(This with the Show IP add-on)  Others will be tried tomorrow.  Thanks.

Open the Bookmarks Manager.  Navigate to where you want the second
instance of a bookmark.  This should be in the right-hand pane.  Then
drag from the address area (URI bar) or a tab and drop into the desired
location, again in the right-hand pane.

With duplicate bookmarks, you should assign a unique tag -- the same tag
-- to both.  Then, if you update one, the update will apply to both.  If
you then delete one, both might be deleted; but I'm not sure about this.

I just tried an experiment.  I opened WinZip.  I dragged a PrefBar .xpi
file into the empty WinZip window.  Seeing install.rdf, I viewed it with
Wordpad.  I was able to edit install.rdf and save the result back into
the .xpi file.  All this worked without actually extracting install.rdf
and then rezipping it after editing.

I don't know if other zip applications will work this way, and I don't
know if any of this can be done on non-Windows platforms.

The following add-on rdf files were modified per instructions and now work with 
SM 2.1 :

* BetterPrivacy 1.51 (http://netticat.ath.cx/extensions.html)
* DownloadHelper 4.8.6 (http://www.downloadhelper.net)
* Image Zoom 0.4.6 (http://imagezoom.yellowgorilla.net/)
* Password Exporter 1.2.1 (http://passwordexporter.fligtar.com)
* PrefBar 5.1.1 (http://prefbar.mozdev.org/)
* Quote Colors 0.3 (http://quotecolors.mozdev.org/)
* ShowIP 1.0 (http://code.google.com/p/firefox-showip/)

Thanks to all who offered the suggestion to modify the .rdf files.

Right. Note that we didn't know if it would be adopted at all because of 
that, but interestingly, we found ad providers eager to support it, as 
they all had their self-crafted opt-out mechanisms so far (needing those 
e.g. for compliance with the law in many areas). And so far, all major 
web browsers have implemented or promised to implement it - with the 
exception of Google Chrome (speculate yourself about the reasons).

For a non-mandatory "ask nicely" approach, this mechanism is seeing a 
lot of early adoption, interestingly.

No, it's still there and used for people still upgrading from 1.x to 
2.1, but from 2.0 to 2.1, such a mechanism is not necessary, as 2.1 can 
directly reuse a 2.0 profile.

1) It's mostly vanished from browser stats already.
2) If browser stats look at "SeaMonkey" in the UA, they still detect us. 
If they don't, they will detect us as Firefox.
3) Websites should not treat us differently than Firefox anyhow.

It was just a temporary version number for non-release builds from the 
same source, until we retired "nightly" builds from the 2.1 branch.

We are a volunteer project. Feel free to provide any of those. And if 
full themes are too much, the "lightweight themes" or "personas" concept 
gives fast and easy customization with thousands of styles available 
from www.getpersonas.com

For what reason? Note that all data sent to a server by Sync is not 
readable by the server or its operators as it's encrypted on the client 
side and the private key is never sent to the server. Of course, as we 
are an open organization, you can set up your own server as well, of 
course, Mozilla even provides a version for you to install.

Not even in a way that nobody else can read? Because that's what our 
Sync is, not even the server operators can read the data as they don't 
have the necessary keys, which always remain only on your side of the 
connection.

A bookmark is only deleted if all duplicates are deleted. Just like
hard-links in linux directories.

Didn't really want a duplicate, just didn't know I already had it. That green

I have QuoteCollapse which does both colors and collapses long quoted sections 
so I can read the most recent (current) comments. And expand the quotes if 
needed, of course.

Doing something which fails if the network fails, if the server fails, or if

I'm at least going to look into that myself, but would probably run my own

Security is not a major issue, at least for most people, but depending on the 
network and someone else' servers for backup (and rollback if needed) might be. 
If I understand the limitations on version compatibility between machines, that 
might be an issue as well.

I tried QuoteCollase several Times, and iI always ended up with a wide

Phillip, what you describe (screen wide, 2inch high bar at bottom of 
browser screen) reminds me of a screen that I used to get, back in Moz 
suite days, because one or other of the extensions I had installed 
wouldn't work for the version of Moz I had installed.

Could this be your problem now??

Note that Sync does not change that your bookmarks, history, passwords, 
tabs are _primarily_ stored *on your own computer, in your profile*.
It just backs up all of those in an encrypted form on the Sync server 
(by default a Mozilla server) and *synchronizes* your local changes with 
this "backup" if you will, as well as any other connected machines with 
the backup.
And I think that for many people, privacy actually is an issue, esp. 
when it comes to what websites they have visited when, or their passwords.

well I had that problem on All SM1.x versions and even tried on SM when 
it first came out with same result. the only cure was remove it them 
remove certain chrome files and let them rebuild of couse by doing so 
you had reinstall all your extensions. IN SM2 I tried it first. so I 
didn't have to remove much.

I'm using QuoteCollapse 0.8 without much of a problem (needs 
compatibility checks deactivated at least for SM 2.1, though). The issue 
you describe (broken MailNews status bar) sounds similar to what I found 
with Mailbox Alert, though. I've contacted the author; let's see where 
that leads.

I can only say that the version I have works on 2.0.14, and I'm really happy to 
have it. I will try an install on 2.1 as I upgrade something.

I'll probably get my post taken down for this, but wouldn't it be easier to 
provide a compatibility check disable in about:config that actually WORKS 
instead of having some of us creating hacked xpi files and others staying with 
old versions because they can't or won't?

When the SM version is > than the specified max in the install.rtf wouldn't it 
be nice to have a pop-up asking something like
   Your version of Seamonkey is newer than the add-on is know to support
     try install anyway? [TRY]  [CANCEL]

Just my ten cents worth...

Why should the suggestion get you thrown off. The most they could say

First of all, I don't see why anyone would kill a post with such content.

The situation with SM regarding incompatible extensions can be 
summarized as follows: First, there are two (10 ;-)) kind of extensions: 
Those that declare compatibility with at least some version of SM (let's 
call them "used to work"), and those that don't (let's call them 
"unsupported").

For extensions that used to work (like QuoteCollapse), you can simply 
install the Add-on Compatibility Reporter from AMO. It is currently 
compatible with all SM versions from 2.1 (stable) through 2.4a1 (trunk). 
This has the added benefit over simply setting the compatibility prefs 
yourself (which you don't have to remember to set anymore!) that you can 
let the extension authors know that their versions still work with the 
SM version you are using.

Unsupported extensions however are different. They cannot be installed 
or enabled in SM at all unless you hack their install.rdf (or someone 
releases a new, supported version of course). Sometimes that's 
unfortunate since the author just "blindly" removed SM support from 
install.rdf, but it certainly is the safest thing to do as a default. To 
my knowledge, there is no extension that automatically hacks install.rdf 
for you (which, in the case of a download/install, would have to happen 
in between the download and the install!).

The system, as outlined above, is part of the Mozilla platform (i.e. 
shared with Firefox). Consequently, any change to it needs to be made to 
the platform code, which is under Firefox development ruling. I'd assume 
that any request regarding install.rdf hacking (even pref-guarded) would 
be turned down, so I wouldn't bother trying.

Currently there is a compatibility check which can be disabled, but setting it 
doesn't disable compatibility checking! That's kind of a waste. There was (is) 
also another check disable, which I can't find quickly in my notes, something like:
   extensions.checkCompatibility.2.1
or similar, which actually did something, but doesn't seem to any more (which is 
why I don't have it enabled currently). If there were a config to ignore 
compatibility checking beyond the first (major) number, it would at least give 
people a chance to try things.

I assume that the reason people work on Seamonkey is because they want people to 
use it, therefore an option to disable at least some of the checks would be 
really useful. This *is* use at your own risk software, and an option is WAY 
safer than having users fiddling inside install.rdf.

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.

[re-post of http://home.kairo.at/blog/2010-02/dropping_1_9_2_going_1_9_3_for_seamonkey here in the groups/lists] I blogged on SeaMonkey 2.1 planning earlier in http://home.kairo.at/blog/2010-01/seamonkey_2_1_planning and also about the fact that we have been unsure if we should go 1.9.2 or 1.9.3 in terms of the platform there.

I'm checking back in after being away for a couple of months and I missed the 3.1 release. I can't seem to find any info on what's new in 3.1 and also what the upgrade path should be.
