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.

    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.
