Securita Update (Content filter for Mozilla)
by Robert J. Accettura

Securita is a open source project with the goal of providing the first truly effective content filter for use with Mozilla and Netscape. Securita is different than most other content filters because it is based upon open source and is extremely flexible. Using SDAT, an open standard, no longer must a user rely on someone with different beliefs to create a filter. A user or organization can create a filter to meet their needs. SDAT is a dialect of XML used by Securita as a database of words and/or URL's to watch out for. SDAT is an open standard maintained by The Securita Project for use by Securita.

We are currently working to create a usable version of SDAT. The latest theory version is at:

It is by no means final, but just a general theory.

Beonex Update (Internet client software suite targetted at end-users)
by Ben Bucksch

Here is the latest on the Beonex project:


  • Prepared a 0.8.1 based on Mozilla 1.0.1
  • Reinstalled Linux release build machine, which I accidently foobared in the 0.8 release frenzy.
  • Integrated David Einstein's Spellchecker (yeah! :-) ) to ship directly with Beonex Communicator and work out-of-the-box. Works on Linux; prepared, but uncertain for Windows.
  • Bernd Dittmann volunteered to help with the project (welcome on board! :-) ) and to do PR (get press attention)


  • Release 0.8.1 at the same time as Mozilla 1.0.1
  • Have Spellchecker and per-app icons on Windows work out-of-the-box


  • No ETA for Mozilla 1.0.1
  • Windows
    • David Hallowell moved recently and thus still has no internet access. Appearantly, Telcos suck all over the world. :-)
    • Simon Lucy, who is the "backup" builder, has build problems
    • Timely release of 0.8.1 and integration of spellchecker thus in danger
  • It's hard to build on Linux with minimal size, but working on all (used) distros. Dependency problems keep to plague.
  • Spellchecker still has crashes, need to report them
  • We need to resolve the "competition" with builds, it is hindering progress on all ends.
