#1 So far so good-MacOS X 10.3.9

So far after about 10 minutes of use, SeaMonkey 1.1.1 appears to be a good release. Nothing strange. No lost profile.

As with any release, just to be safe, back up your profile folder before lanching a new update of SeaMonkey for the first time. Don't trash SeaMonkey 1.1 yet, just in case a bug may be found in version 1.1 which may necessitate a roll back to the earlier version.

Thanks to the developers for a timely security fix. Go get it.

according to: This friday 3.16.2007 is a "test day" for TB-2.0

They say: "...Thunderbird 2 is at zarro bugs, and we're going to treat the nightly branch build as an informal RC so we can gather feedback on the release..."

so TB-2.0 final it is gettting closer each week, but is still a little ways off it looks like.

You might wish to look at:

NOTE! the above link is for TESTING some builds only.. there are no release candidates yet, just some that are getting close ("Thunderbird 2 Release Candidate Builds: * We are still waiting for official RC builds. Until they are available, please use the latest nightly builds...")
