<h2 id="new">New Features and Fixes</h2>
<!-- Major -->
<div class="fieldset">
<span class="legend" id="major">Major Changes</span>
  <li>SeaMonkey switched to Toolkit, the same backend Firefox uses
    internally. Due to this change SeaMonkey is now much closer to Firefox
    as far as user profiles, add-ons and functionality of user interface
    elements are concerned.</li>
  <li>The default location of user profiles has changed. Legacy profiles, e.g.
    from SeaMonkey 1.x, are migrated automatically, excluding third-party
    add-ons (extensions and themes). The old profile will not be touched
    (instead, copies are made).</li>
  <li>The new Add-on Manager allows to install, update, disable and
    remove extensions (add-ons), themes and plugins using the same
    mechanisms Firefox uses. This should ease extension management and
    development considerably.</li>
  <li>The first step towards customizable toolbars has been made: The icon size
    and whether to display icons and/or text can be chosen separately for every
    major toolbar in in both the browser and MailNews components via their
    context menu.</li>
  <li>The MailNews component now includes support for reading RSS and Atom
    feeds, And the browser detects feeds offered by web pages. Since the
    support for previewing feeds in the browser has not yet been included, the
    feed icon at the right end of the URL bar currently is directly invoking
    subscription to the feed in the MailNews component, if an account for feeds
    has already been created there.</li>
  <li>Gecko, the rendering engine used in SeaMonkey, has seen many
    improvements since the version used in the last stable release. Changes
    range from a better graphics backend (Cairo/Thebes) to improved support
    for fonts, CSS, DOM and JavaScript. SeaMonkey 2.0 Alpha&nbsp;1 passes
    the Acid2 test and most of Acid3.</li>
  <li>Most of the icons in the default theme have been exchanged for newer
    images that fit better with the look of modern desktop environments.</li>
  <li>Support for Windows 95, 98, Me and NT 4 was dropped. GTK 2.10 is now
    required on Linux/UNIX. Support for Mac OS X 10.3 (&quot;Panther&quot;)
    was also dropped.</li>
