SeaMonkey Trunk Tracker

Sunday, May 07, 2006

It has been some time...

... since the last update. There are some major reworkings going on right now and I was waiting for one of them to be completed. But as it seems, the whole thing will take longer, so here we go.

What I am talking about is the activation of additional locales as of build time. Robert Kaiser a.k.a. kaiRo, the coordinator of the German translations for the SeaMonkey project, lately got quite busy resolving bugs and checking in. The de-AT language pack, which he is in charge of, will be (one of) the first to be built from CVS.

Another field of recent activity is "suiterunner", which aims at porting SeaMonkey from XPFE to Toolkit (which is used by Firefox and Thunderbird). The goal is to have SeaMonkey 1.5 be based on Toolkit so that future development can profit even better from Firefox/Thunderbird, and vice-versa. Current default CVS trunk builds are still using XPFE, but much efforts are made in the background which can only be seen when building with MOZ_XUL_APP=1 set.

Bug 178091: implement MaiLapp / 4.x Mac communicator like versions of the "move/copy" menus
  wanted to get rid of the "File Here" / "Choose This Folder" dropdown menu entries, but again I don't know how to activate it (maybe it's Thunderbird-only actually?)

Bug 330053: Make SeaMonkey capable of generating a reasonable build with MOZ_XUL_APP set.
Bug 67127: Newline in tooltips (title attribute) converted to black bars
