SeaMonkey 1.1.4 Released

Monday August 6th, 2007

Robert "KaiRo" Kaiser has announced the release of SeaMonkey 1.1.4. This upgrade to the all-in-one Internet suite fixes several security issues, detailed in the SeaMonkey 1.1.4 section of the Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories page. The three issues listed, which include a SeaMonkey variant of the firefoxurl:// security flaw, also affected Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird (they were patched in those applications' 2.0.0.5 and 2.0.0.6 releases).

All SeaMonkey users are urged to upgrade, including users of the now unsupported SeaMonkey 1.0.x (last updated when SeaMonkey 1.0.9 was released simultaneously with SeaMonkey 1.1.2 in May). The SeaMonkey team is also urging users of the Mozilla Application Suite, Netscape 7, Netscape 6 and Netscape Communicator 4.x to upgrade to SeaMonkey 1.1.4. "All those older software packages suffer from a large and steadily increasing number of security vulnerabilities because they are no longer being maintained," KaiRo explains. "SeaMonkey 1.1.4 is a modern, drop-in replacement, providing the same familiar suite functionality with additional features and fully up to date security fixes." The SeaMonkey project is a community-driven continuation of the Mozilla Application Suite, which formed the basis of Netscape 6 and 7 and shares similarities with Netscape Communicator 4.x.

SeaMonkey 1.1.4 can be downloaded from www.seamonkey-project.org. More details can be found in the SeaMonkey 1.1.4 Release Notes.

Dear Newcomer,

If you are having a problem with Seamonkey, please tell us here. We would love to help. There are many, many people here with a lot of experience, and any of us would be glad to help.

As for Seamonkey itself, its roots go back to the very start of the graphical web itself. It incorporates and respects all that the web and the internet was. More importantly, Seamonkey incorporates the web's future. The most recent releases have all of the best technologies and security enhancements that today's -- and tomorrow's -- browser/email client/chat client will demand.

I suspect that at the root of your frustration is a specific problem with a specific site or application. Tell us about that in detail.

If you are having trouble, the first advice anyone will have it to install the latest version (<http://stage.mozilla.org/…seamonkey/releases/1.1.5/>) and tell us if that doesn't help your specific problem.
