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 Buff! Long time no see around these parts! I hope college is going well or do you have the summer off?

I'm really surprised at what you'd written about the auto-update you'd gotten. But let's clarify this if we can, okie? Did you get an auto-update of the type that Firefox users get---where ONLY the updated code is downloaded and grafted in/installed? (For the most part, unless problems are encountered and then the total file is downloaded and installed over the old file.) Or, did you get the "Notice Update" which we SeaMonkey users have always gotten in the past, informing us that there's a new version available which WE have to go download and install?

This latter has been the type I've always received in the past. I *didn't* receive it this time yet I updated immediately before it was widely known there was an update. I've always been informed that the Firefox-type of update couldn't be done and wouldn't be available *until* we switched over to the toolkit. But like I stated above: "I could be wrong so please, someone with more knowledge on the subject correct me if I am..." But I would like to know which system it was Buff.

Oh heck... I shouldn't have jumped the gun and just seen for myself, eh? :-D

On a totally different subject: Still enjoying your SeaMonkey themes immensely Buff!

Amicalement,
