User sg9s offers several current SeaMonkey builds from latest Source:  SeaMonkey 2.49  | SeaMonkey 2.53  | SeaMonkey 2.57 | SeaMonkey trunk, all for WINDOWS and Linux.

I am currently doing some tests with unzipped installer of unofficial (by wg9s) en-US SeaMonkey 2.53 (NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:56.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0 Build 20180902143701 (Default Classic Theme, German Language Pack active) on German WIN7 64bit.

Some first results:

  1. ⚠ The tested version still suffers from Bug 1226839 – 64Bit: Impossible to make Mail/News default application (for “send from Files Explorer”, “Send document (as PDF)”, “mailto:”). For me, that is a no-go, more or less.

    With the switch to a new download backend only entries in progress are preserved and these are usually zero to not many. Uses the same migration routine as Firefox and only on the first start.

    > ⚠ German Language pack from Summer 2017: becomes disabled by add-ons-manager. Any known Workaround?

    The old language pack probably has a wrong prerelease version number but it would be unusable because of missing variables. I can either provide a de build or a language pack for testing.

    Probably file associations are not set up. I was able to make this work inside Libreoffice by setting the email client to SeaMonkey. IanN is currently working on shell service enhancements.

    • After a hint from chokito I found some 32bit builds, I will test 2.53

      • I tested seamonkey-2.53.en-US.win32.installer.exe — 2018-11-25 16:00, looks promising, I can work with it. Unfortunately add-on “Go parent folder” for bookmarks does not work, entry “go to parent folder” is missing in context menu. More test results in a new blogpost coming soon.

        @frg: As expected also here the german language pack does not wok. I will ask on German NG whether there is interest for a German build.

    • @frg:
      At NG users Detlef Meißner, Peter Müller, Thomas Giese and Mexx Headroooommm told that they would be interested in using and may be testing a German SeaMonkey 2.53 build. Can you still provide such a build (or LP)?

      Best regards

  3. Does Netflix work without Silverlight in 2.53?

  4. chokito: Netflix requires EME and this does not work in SeaMonkey. Even if it does Netflix would probably block any third party browsers.

    rrbd: Bill will do a de build today. I just updated 2.53 to NSS 3.40.1. Seems to be stable but as always keep the last version and a profile backup around. IanN plans to look into the Linux mail integration. For Windows mapi in x64 is disabled because of bug 393302.

    Guter Rutsch and Happy new year
