Unofficial SeaMonkey 2.53 by user wg9s

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:

Works / works not

  • ✅ Browser
    • ✅ History
    • ✅ Bookmarks
    • ✅ JavaScript
  • ✅ chatzilla
  • ✅ composer
  • ✅ Download manager
    • ⚠ but all existing entries have become lost with my switch to current SeaMonkey 2.53
  • ✅ e-mail client
  • Add-Ons
    • ⚠ German Language pack from Summer 2017: becomes disabled by add-ons-manager. Any known Workaround?
    • ⚠ Add-On Go Parent Folder 2.9.1.1 signed.1-signed (April 2016) does no longer work, entry is missing in Context menu for Sidebar, Bookmarks Panel

Results to be continued!

What is your experience with those builds?

UI completely broken in 2.56a1 Trunk ⚠️️

I used a newly created test profile

So (browser-) UI looks with official en-US SeaMonkey 2.56a1 (NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:59.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/59.0 Build 20180119000058 SourceStamp=ae43fcf7b9ee449f0f0a573d10c93421dbe645bf || ID={92650c4d-4b8e-4d2a-b7eb-24ecf4f6b63a} (Default Classic Theme) on German WIN7 64bit.

May be developers should give some advice in which area and for which builds user-bugreports currently can be useful? I doubt that testing with current (WIN) trunk can yield any benefit 🤔.

🆕: official SeaMonkey 2.56 Nightly Trunk builds available

S e a M o n k e y y y    2.56   i i i n n   s i i i i g h h h h t ….

This blog post in German languageSince the day before yesterday we have SeaMonkey 2.56 Trunk builds available for testing here — for Linux and WINDOWS and Mac.

Only for testing, you will use those developer-builds on your own risk. I recommend to create a backup of your User Profile before you start testing those builds. My first experience with SeaMonkey 2.56 is that it is too buggy to be used, especially the email client causes lots of crashes.

Official 64 Bit Trunk builds for Windows available

This blog post in German languageOnly for testing, you will use those builds on your own risk. I recommend to create a backup of your user profile before you start testing those builds. Please consider that it even might be impossible to use an existing User Profile after downgrade to an earlier SeaMonkey version if you have used that Profile with a Nightly.
