The Mozilla Foundation has announced their so-called "Directed Donation Program"
this week, which allow anyone to direct their donation to the Foundation to a
specific sub-project, such as SeaMonkey.
<br>Starting now, any user can make his donation on the
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/donate">Donate to SeaMonkey</a> page.
The Mozilla Foundation as the direct recipient will keep track of the amount
designated to SeaMonkey, and will work with the SeaMonkey Council on finding
initiatives related to SeaMonkey to fund with this money.
<br>More information is available on the
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/donate">SeaMonkey donation web

    <content type="html" xml:lang="en">
<![CDATA[<p>
The SeaMonkey project has been made aware of several small problems in
displaying certain web pages in the last release and therefore released a new
version of its all-in-one internet suite. SeaMonkey 1.1.6 fixes only those
smaller problems, in addition to security problems that were fixed in previous
versions.
</p>
<p>
The SeaMonkey team urges users of older SeaMonkey versions, including the
SeaMonkey 1.0.x series, which no longer receives security updates, to upgrade.
Additionally, the team continues to strongly urge people still using the old
Mozilla Suite or even Netscape 4, 6 or 7 to upgrade to the new SeaMonkey 1.1.6
version.
All those older software packages suffer from a large and steadily increasing
number of security vulnerabilities because they are no longer being maintained.
SeaMonkey 1.1.6 is a modern, drop-in replacement, providing the same familiar
suite functionality with additional features and fully up to date security
fixes.

<![CDATA[<p>
Today, the SeaMonkey project released a new version of its all-in-one internet
suite. SeaMonkey 1.1.2 closes
<a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html#seamonkey1.1.2">several

previous versions. With that, SeaMonkey stays at the same level of security as
its siblings Firefox and Thunderbird, which are issuing updates for the same

</p>
<p>
Despite a simultaneous release of a last update to the SeaMonkey 1.0 series,
SeaMonkey 1.0.9, the project team strongly urges users to upgrade to SeaMonkey
1.1.2, as the old 1.0 series will not be maintained further. The 1.1 series, on
the other hand, is being actively maintained and also features some new
functionality such as spell checking in web forms and mail tags.
</p>
<p>
In addition to users of older SeaMonkey versions, the SeaMonkey team strongly
urges users of the old Mozilla Suite and Netscape 4, 6 or 7 to upgrade to
SeaMonkey 1.1.2. Those software packages suffer from a large and rising number
of security vulnerabilities because they are no longer being maintained.
SeaMonkey 1.1.2 is a drop-in replacement, providing the same basic suite
functionality plus additional features, without known security problems but
with current updates.
<br>The SeaMonkey project team took over development of the all-in-one internet
application suite after Netscape and later the Mozilla Foundation ceased to
work on it. Under the new name, users are provided with current versions of the
established software package.

<![CDATA[<p>
The SeaMonkey Council is pleased to announce
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/">two new
releases</a> simultaneously:
<br>First, SeaMonkey 1.0.6 continues the successful 1.0 series of the SeaMonkey
all-in-one internet suite, fixing
<a href="http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html#seamonkey1.0.6">several
security vulnerabilities</a> and various stability issues (see the
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/seamonkey1.0.6/">release
notes</a> for more information). The SeaMonkey Council recommends that all
users upgrade to this stable, well-tested version.
<br>Second, the SeaMonkey project has been working hard on improving its
software even further, adding new features such as tab previews, spell checking
in the browser, an e-mail tagging system, an improved Linux startup script,
better new mail notifications, an updated Chatzilla IRC client, and more. A new
preview showing off those improvements,
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/1.1b">SeaMonkey
1.1 Beta</a>, was also released today. This version is intended for developers
and testers (but not yet for end users). The SeaMonkey Council encourages
interested people to test the Beta and help identify the remaining bugs. Be
sure to read the
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/seamonkey1.1b/">release
notes</a> before testing though, as they list not only the new features but
also a number of known issues. Any problems that are not already known should
be reported to the developers via
<a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Mozilla%20Application%20Suite&amp;format=guided">Bugzilla</a>
so that the final SeaMonkey 1.1 release can continue the traditional high
quality expected from the Mozilla suite and the SeaMonkey 1.0 series.

The <a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/">SeaMonkey</a>
Council is proud to announce SeaMonkey 1.0, the first end-user release of their
internet suite. This open source application, available as a
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/">free download</a>
from its mozilla.org-hosted website, features a state-of-the-art web browser
and powerful email client, as well as a WYSIWYG web page composer and a
feature-rich IRC chat client. For web developers, mozilla.org's DOM inspector
and JavaScript debugger tools are included as well. SeaMonkey 1.0 is one of the
most complete, powerful, and secure internet software packages available today.
</p>
<p>
SeaMonkey comes with the the look and feel familiar to users of its
predecessors, the Mozilla Application Suite and Netscape Communicator packages,
but adds many
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/releases/seamonkey1.0/README">new
features</a> as well as back-end changes that improve security, stability and
performance. Some highlights are: drag&amp;drop reordering of tabs, phishing
e-mail detection, support for a single shared inbox when using multiple
accounts, and support for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG).
</p>
<p>
The SeaMonkey project is a community-based project hosted at mozilla.org that
emerged around Mozilla's suite codebase when the Mozilla Foundation announced
it would discontinue further development of its suite product. The new project
is dedicated to keeping this suite alive and developing it into an even more

<![CDATA[<p>
Today, the SeaMonkey Council announces a new developer release, SeaMonkey 1.0
Beta. Compared to the Alpha version released in September, SeaMonkey 1.0 Beta
enhances the product with new features like tab drag and drop, but also is the
first release branded with the
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/dev/artwork">new SeaMonkey
logo</a>, which was unveiled earlier this month. While much of the core code is
shared with the popular Firefox 1.5 browser, SeaMonkey comes with the the look
and feel familiar to users of its ancestors, the Mozilla Application Suite
and Netscape Communicator packages.

SeaMonkey 1.0 Beta is one of the most powerful and secure internet software
packages currently available, even though this release is only for testing.
</p>
<p>
This public Beta release includes all features planned for the SeaMonkey 1.0
final release, which is expected for January 2006. Due to a large number of bug
fixes, it should also be even more stable and convient to use than the previous
Alpha release, and the SeaMonkey Council calls for testers to use the product
and report any further glitches they might find, so that the 1.0 release can be
not only the best available internet suite in terms of features, but also in
quality, security and stability.

    <headline>New Logo For SeaMonkey</headline>
    <content type="html" xml:lang="en">
<![CDATA[<p>
After months of submissions and selection processes, the SeaMonkey Council
is announcing a new logo for its project and application. The project's initial
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/news.html#2005-07-28">call
for logo submissions</a> was answered with no fewer than 197 different
proposals submitted by Mozilla and SeaMonkey community members. From those 197
logos, amongst which were many good options, the Council selected the
new logo after many discussions and a long decision process.
</p>
<p>
<img src="/images/seamonkey64.png" alt="" height="64" width="64"
style="float:left;margin-right:0.5em;">
The <a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/dev/artwork">new
artwork</a> centers around an abstract figure resembling a "Sea Monkey",
colored in a light, cyan/blue color, standing out from a dark blue circle with
a wave pattern in the middle. This design, created by Alex Butin, not only
looks professional and polished, but also fits perfectly as an icon on a modern
computer desktop and is easily recognizable even in small sizes. Additionally,
the look matches the rest of the mozilla.org family (Firefox, Thunderbird,
Camino, Sunbird) quite well. And while the soft shapes and color shades create
a very polished impression, the waves and the figure make people feel the new
dynamic the internet suite application has gained through the new project.
</p>
<p>
SeaMonkey 1.0 Beta, the first testing release including that artwork, is
planned for release within the next few weeks, with a final SeaMonkey 1.0
release soon after that. Development versions, so-called "nightly builds",
should have the new logo and artwork available within the next few days.

The SeaMonkey Council is pleased to announce its first release, SeaMonkey 1.0
Alpha. Developed from the codebase of the previously successful Mozilla
Application Suite, SeaMonkey 1.0 Alpha contains lots of new features, and
numerous enhancements and bugfixes compared to the last Mozilla suite versions.
Internally, much of the core code is shared with the current Firefox 1.5 Beta 1
browser, but from the outside, it represents the look and feel that long-time
Mozilla and Netscape users have learned to love.

Note that SeaMonkey 1.0 Alpha does not presently include official SeaMonkey
artwork, as the SeaMonkey project is still open to
<a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/dev/artwork">logo
submissions</a> from its community. The new logo will be selected from these
submissions and integrated into the upcoming SeaMonkey 1.0 Beta, which will be
the last version before SeaMonkey 1.0 ships later this year.

While current experimental "nightly" builds of the SeaMonkey application as
well as the upcoming SeaMonkey 1.0 Alpha testing release feature a rather
primitive logo, the project seeks more professional artwork for the future.
Everyone with sufficient graphical skills is invited to help, as the new logo
will be selected from community submissions.
For more about criteria, and information on how to submit your proposal, please
see the <a href="dev/artwork">SeaMonkey artwork page</a>.

    <headline>SeaMonkey Project Continues Internet Suite</headline>
    <subline>Former "Mozilla Application Suite" Code sees new development from independent group</subline>
    <content type="html" xml:lang="en">
<![CDATA[<p>
When the Mozilla Foundation announced its
<a href="http://www.mozilla.org/seamonkey-transition.html">"transition plan"</a>
for the long-lived Mozilla-branded application suite, this move meant not only
a refocus of the Foundation to its new premier products Firefox and
Thunderbird, but also a transition of new suite code development to an
independent group. This group now is proud to announce its existence and its
new project name, "SeaMonkey".
</p>
<p>
The SeaMonkey name was adopted by the project leading group (dubbed
"SeaMonkey Council") after considering a long list of community-proposed
names - it was decided that the long-lived internal code name still suited
the project best.
It was no easy decision, but it has a certain appeal - the suite is already
known by SeaMonkey within the developer community. The council is working on
having this name trademarked with the help of the Mozilla Foundation.
</p>
<p>
While the Foundation doesn't consider the new SeaMonkey application to be
an officially supported upgrade path for Mozilla suite users, it provides the
newly founded project with assistance in the form of much-needed project
infrastructure, and cooperates with SeaMonkey developers. Development of
SeaMonkey produces many improvements which are contributed back to
the Mozilla codebase, much of which is shared with products including Firefox
and Thunderbird.
</p>
<p>
The group is planning to deliver an Alpha version of its first release,
SeaMonkey 1.0, within the next few weeks. Users of Mozilla 1.7.x or even the
Mozilla 1.8 Alpha and Beta releases will see a new, improved version of the
application they are used to. Netscape 7.x users will also feel at home with the
new SeaMonkey suite.
</p>
<p>
SeaMonkey contains a state-of-the-art web browser and a feature-rich
mail and newsgroups client, along with a simple yet powerful HTML editor, web
development tools and an IRC chat application.
</p>
<p>
On the web, the SeaMonkey project can currently be found at its mozilla.org
address, <a href="http://www.seamonkey-project.org/">http://www.seamonkey-project.org/</a>
- the project leading team (SeaMonkey Council) can be contacted via email at
<a href="mailto:seamonkey-council@mozilla.org">seamonkey-council@mozilla.org</a>.
