Independent Status Reports (14 March, 2005)
Sunday March 20th, 2005By Brian King
Seamonkey is dead, long live Seamonkey. As the Mozilla Foundation officially stops development on the Mozilla Suite, a new external group has formed to take over the running of the project. This is another example of the Mozilla Community stepping up and playing a valuable role. Some people like the idea of a separate browser, mail client, editor, and so on. Some like integration, so let's hope Seamonkey survives and thrives in some form, as they can certainly live in parallel. Extension authors will continue to busily do their thing, creating great little add-ons and larger programs based on Mozilla technologies. As this month's reports shows, there is still alot of activity. mozdev.org currently has over 250 active projects and this number is rising.
