A lot of half-arsed ideas here about the split... personally I see no big deal - *bird aren't near finished yet, they are still essentially beta software, at least until they are ready for prime time seamonkey development will continue - WELL DUH.

I know that often features aren't exactly fully determined by alpha freeze ;) but just out of interest, is there anything new planned/likely for 1.6? 1.5 had the spellchecker plus 'invisible' improvements to layout and such. I assume there will be more such hidden improvements in 1.6, but are there going to be any visible new features? Or is that type of work on seamonkey essentially over?
