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.

Hi Neil,

I could be wrong so please, someone with more knowledge on the subject correct me if I am, but the current Thunderbird/Firefox offer the auto-updates Neil because of their being based on the toolkit. This gives them this "magical ability" to do such updating. However, the current "official builds/releases" of SeaMonkey (up to 1.1.4 and early 1.5a) aren't yet based upon this toolkit and therefore lack the ability. I guess it lies within the specific coding of the toolkit's ability, see?

Now the current versions of SeaMonkey 2.0 pre-alpha and up ARE based upon the toolkit, so once this goes official in 2.0---if it's turned on that is---then we'll have an entire range of new options in our Suite just like they do in Firefox/TBird, auto-updates being one of these great new options. :)

I hope I'm right for the most part and helped answer the question Neil? What I'm looking forward to myself is the ability to move icons around, or add more/remove them from the toolbars. That would be a huge improvement for me.

Amicalement,
