Status Update

Friday January 14th, 2000

David Polberger thought it was worth drawing attention to Jim Roskind's Seamonkey status update on the mozilla.org Status Update page.

Jim talks about dogfood, alpha, beta -- all from an unofficial point-of-view -- and gives a clear look ahead at the next few months of development.

There's a lot to do, but they're making great progress, and I expect M13 (the tree closes for M13 stabilization on the 18th of January) will get a strong reception.

They can't put encryption in Mozilla because the laws still prevent open sourcing the crypto stuff, which would be required if Mozilla is to handle it.

The only way around this is when Netscape, or whoever wants to make a browser, brands their version of Mozilla and start adding stuff to it, including the stuff that cannot be open sourced (encryption, plug-ins, etc)
