SeaMonkey Meeting Details


  • Who's taking minutes? -> Ratty

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn't been recorded in a bug) We should assign people to the open items.



  • Get permission from Google to use their geolocation JSON service [KaiRo]. Contact at Google says: "We don't have a good estimate for when GLS will be opening up more broadly, but I will be sure to let you know when we take that step. Sorry that I can not be more specific at this time." - We can only wait right now.


  • We need bug 483980 back-ported from trunk to fix our History Import bug bug 484175. Ratty to raise the issue in
    • It looks like the branch patch will definitely not make We hope that we can get approval for however.

SeaMonkey 2.0 Beta 1

  • RELEASED on June 21!
  • 132 FIXED bugs targeted seamonkey2.0b1
  • Some regressions filed, but generally good feedback.
  • Anything else to note? Things to change in future releases?
    • Releasing in 17 languages seems to have worked nicely.
    • Partial updates appear to be working without problems.

SeaMonkey 2.0 Beta 2

open blockers (2) blocker requests (3)

  • IanN will start triaging nominations.
  • Schedule not set yet.
    • According to Standard8 a rough estimate for the Thunderbird 3.0b4 cycle would be four to eight weeks.
    • A possible freeze date for September would be sometime in mid to late September.
    • SeaMonkey should target a freeze date of 1st September so that we have room to assess the situation and to push it slightly back if needed. We would then expect at least a week between freeze and release, as Firefox does.
    • Standard8 expects comm-central to branch soon after Thunderbird 3.0b4.
    • Target milestone and flags for 2.1a1 should be created in any case.
  • We might want to take bug 474701 depending on how it works out in Thunderbird.
  • Tabmail is the largest missing feature.
    • Prerequisite for Lightning which we would like to support in final.

SeaMonkey 2.0 Final

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for last two (full) weeks: 64 new, 26 fixed, 96 triaged.

Major wanted/needed features:

  • Download manager aftermath:
    • All fixed. Only enhancement bugs going forward.
  • Toolbar customization aftermath:
    • bug 481862 We still need small button icons for modern in MailNews. Needs someone who understands both css and svg/graphics.
    • Ratty will start on Message Compose and the css for the Default theme. Modern can be dealt with later.
  • bug 460960 Port Thunderbird tabbed interface to MailNews.
    • status/update?
  • bug 456757 Modern theme update.
    • No News.
  • bug 460699 Make the default theme look better on mac.
    • stefanh has posted a new patch.
  • bug 348720 New icon set for "SeaMonkey Default Theme".
    • No News.
  • bug 410613 OpenSearch. helpwanted.
    • We need to check if OpenSearch can support all our existing functionality, for example the INTEPRETS section in Sherlock search plugins. Mnyromyr will check on that, and on how extensible the Firefox code is.
    • OpenSearch is now targeted for 2.Next.
  • bug 460953 Port jminta's kill-rdf to SeaMonkey where applicable.
    • There isn't any urgent need for progress on this as long as we don't break. It might be good for extensions if we to convert our folder pane to be JS-driven e.g. calendar wants to put items there.
    • If nobody picks up the JS-driven folderpane it will have to be pushed back to 2.Next as well.
