SeaMonkey 2.53.3 Beta 1

Has been released.

I think I can recommend that Beta version, I have been using 2.53 for a long time without bigger problems. But you should keep in mind that there will be no way back for your existing User Profile after you will have used it with 2.53.

You should do a backup of your User Profile before you launch the new build  firrst time.

Unofficial SeaMonkey 2.53.4 beta 1 pre by user wg9s

This blog post in German language User wg9s offers several current SeaMonkey builds from latest source for WINDOWS, MAC and Linux.

SeaMonkey 2.53.4 is the new successor of 2.53.3, German version works fine for me on WIN, English Version and other OS not (yet) Tested by me.

Reports on Expereience are welcome, but please be aware that you use those builds on your own risk. I recommend to create a backup of your user profile before you start testing those builds.

I started to test 2.53.1 today, until now it works fine for me.

SeaMonkey 2.53.2

This blog post in German languageHas been released.

I can recommend that version, I have been using 2.53 for a long time without bigger problems. But you should keep in mind that there will be no way back for your existing 2.49 User Profile after you will have used it with 2.53.2.

Additionally to the official Release Notes here you find some more information concerning changes with SeaMonkey 2.53.2

  • Zur Mozilla-Bugzilla HomepagePossible new bugs in SeaMonkey — only those with Status New or Assigned already have been confirmed as real bugs.
  • Possible new bugs, caused by regressions in Firefox or in Thunderbird, which also might  affect SeaMonkey. This query is not very reliable.

You can find workarounds for new problems in the Wiki

Download from here!

Please keep in mind, that download of Add-ons is (more or less) only possible with installed AMO Browsing for SeaMonkey 0.10.0. The name is misleading for historic reasons, the Add-on now works fine at addons.thunderbird.net. Unfortunately a related hint is missing in the Release Notes.

Also useful is ca-archive with many old Add-ons which are no longer available form addons.thunderbird.net.

 


Thanks to all who contributed to the project and helped to make possible this release!

I gambled around a little, nothing helps.

I’m afraid I will nave to Create a new profile and import old contents step by step.

Or do you know a trick I should try to revive mail in my existing profile?

P.S.:

Bad thing I had to learn: I did Backups of my profile with 7z. But if I replace the profile in the rooming folder, the profile will not work. SM launches, but the complete Folder contents is dead, will not be recognized. May because I should have additionally added the Profile components from <C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Mozilla\SeaMonkey\Profiles>? I don’t think so, I additionally had done an unzipped copy of my Profile, that works (except mail …), I have access to bookmarks, passwords and so on.
