SeaMonkey 1.0.8 and 1.1.1 released - please upgrade!

Hi all,

Following the Gecko security update releases a few days ago, the 
SeaMonkey project issued new security and stability releases today for 
its all-in-one internet application suite. SeaMonkey 1.1.1 is now 
available for download, fixing several security vulnerabilities as well 
as a list of problems users of SeaMonkey 1.1 reported to developers. See 
the release notes for a complete list of changes.
Additionally, the project also released SeaMonkey 1.0.8, which fixes the 
security vulnerabilites listed above also for the SeaMonkey 1.0 series, 
without adding the new features available in 1.1 and later versions.

Will it ever be that we can update like Firefox and Thunderbird without
having to do a complete install? I am sure everything is not rewritten.

First I'd like to let you know that; all your, the entire team's, work 
with SeaMonkey is very much appreciated!

Second I'd just like to inform you that there, currently, is not yet an 
entry for the SM 1.1.x branch (like that for the SM 1.0.x branch) in the 
Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories page, 
<http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html#seamonkey1.1.1> 
  , linked to from the SeaMonkeyNews page above.

Thanks!

Yes, I need to contact Dan Veditz, the leader of the Mozilla security 
team, about that. Thanks for reminding me.

This needs to update infrastructure of the "new toolkit", so we can't 
support it on versions that still build on the "old xpfe backend". We 
will into this for future SeaMonkey versions that will build on the 
mentioned new infrastructure.
Until then, i.e.e for SeaMonkey 1.0.x and 1.1.x, we can only offer full 
update releases, no partial updates.

This seems to have incorrectly made it to this list, it's fixed in the=20
code that's going to be 1.1.2 one day, but not yet in 1.1.1 (checked in=20
on branch on the 25th, when we finished 1.1.1 on 21st).

We'll remove it from that list.

Thanks!

Is the 1.1.1 linux code any different from the 22-Feb-2007 nightly
candidates code? If so I'll reload, but if it's the same then I won't
have to.

Nope, don't re-download them, they are exactly the same files.

Thanks & happy to report that I've been running 1.1.1 on 6 linux systems
since 22-Feb and so far (knock on plastic) not a single glitch or
problem found so far!

Yeah, I slapped myself for forgetting those extra words after
suggesting the change of description.  :/  The bug itself
should be changed for posterity.  That is a major bug for Macs.

 From reading the release notes for SM 1.1.1, it doesn't sound like the 
problem I was having with SM 1.1 and posted about here at the end of 
January ('SM 1.1. Mail.  Paper-size settings') has been addressed? 
Every time I went to print an email from my Inbox, I had to re-set the 
paper-size from Letter to A4.  I'm currently using SM 1.0.7, where no 
such problem exists.

Can anyone confirm for me whether the problem has, or has not, been 
addressed in SM 1.1.1?

Looks like it MAY indeed have been fixed.  I went to Bugzilla (is that 
right?) and found this listed after I nominated SeaMonkey bugs:

> 351913    	min  	--  	All  	iann_bugzilla@arlen.demon.c...  	RESO  	FIXE  	Printer paper format always set to letter

But can anyone confirm re SM 1.1.1.?

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=351913 has 
fixed-seamonkey1.1.1 set so it should be fixed. Best is to try, of course.

At any time, you may download the latest build on the path from 1.1.1 to 1.1.2 
(normally one new build per 24h) by browsing to 
http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/seamonkey/nightly/latest-mozilla1.8/ -- 
at your own risk, of course. Each build ought not to be markedly more unstable 
than the one before, but no Mozilla official will give any warranty about 
them: the official motto is "Use nightlies at your own risk, they might beat 
your dog, empty your fridge, put your house on fire, and elope with your 
wife." ;-)


Best regards,
Tony.

I remember the discussion Ken, and having just upgraded, it looks like 
it's been fixed.  I went to print a mail message, and the printer 
dialogue showed the default paper size of A4.

With all respect, I have never seen ANY update release, only REINSTALL 
releases. That is, all of existing SM is deleted, a new base unmodified 
install is done, then all the various plugins and themes are installed.

I can tell you that this is a major security risk, because a lot of 
people will say "I don't have time," or put it on the list of things to 
do when there's no real work to do. Or just switch to Firefox, 
Thunderbird, and Pan.

And for someone who is responsible for multiple machines with different 
changes per machine, it starts looking like a line item on a weekly 
tasks list.

I don't say this because I'm lazy, just because I hate to see a great 
software package be viewed as too expensive. Please consider delaying 
some of the things you want to do because they're neat and rethinking 
the difference between an update and a total do-over. if there were a 
way to do "save changes" and "reapply changes" that would be fine, but 
sitting with a browser ansering questions about installs doesn't scale.

If you install your extensions & themes in your profile, and plugins in the 
default "Netscape plugin" location, you don't need to reinstall them when you 
upgrade SeaMonkey. Then a Sm install won't take much time. I do one every day 
(for the next trunk nightly) and it doesn't significantly break my work routine.

Another possibility is to keep a local copy of extensions' and themes' xpi and 
jar files in some local folder that the install won't destroy: this method has 
advantages (if you see it as an advantage to have add-ons common to all users 
on a multiuser system) and inconvenients (you need to run the program once to 
pick up the addons, then restart).

Best regards,
Tony.

1) You haven't understood what the word "update" means. It doesn't mean 
"partial binary diff" as you seem to think, it just means that the 
code/software was made in some way more up-to-date, for security, 
functionality, or whatever. The word "update" is in no way any statement 
about how this is technically delivered or applied to a user-side install.

2) Actually, our reworking of the whole suite is also what will enable 
us to enable the partial binary diff upgrade installer currently in use 
by Firefox.

SeaMonkey 1.0.8 and 1.1.1
Hi localizers, Sorry for not informing you earlier on, but first we had to do a few respins and then I was too busy with the FOSDEM conference... Anyways, we're about to release the newest SeaMonkey security and stability update releases right now, with the version numbers 1.0.8 and 1.1.1 Due to our L10n freezes, both work with the language packs from earlier versions (1.0 or 1.1), but if you want binary builds up on FTP, you need to regenerate them for those versions. Both are already up in their respective release directories: http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozill...

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. Thus, in light of what I have read, I am wondering if it would wise for me to wait for a future release of SeaMonkey before upgrading my system...I suppose I am hoping tha...
