Quote:
first release, SeaMonkey 1.0 Alpha. Developed from the codebase of the previously successful Mozilla Application Suite, SeaMonkey 1.0 Alpha contains lots of new features, and numerous enhancements and bugfixes compared to the last Mozilla suite versions. Internally, much of the core code is shared with the current Firefox 1.5 Beta 1 browser, but from the outside, it represents the look and feel that long-time Mozilla and Netscape users have learned to love.

"SeaMonkey 1.0 Alpha features more than just a state-of-the-art web browser, though: the application comes with a powerful email client as well as a WYSIWYG web page composer and a feature-rich IRC chat application. For web developers, mozilla.org's DOM inspector and JavaScript debugger tools are included as well. SeaMonkey 1.0 Alpha is one of the most powerful and secure internet software packages currently available, even though this release is only for testing.

That's great!
I spent a lot of time hunting for "seamonkey source" and couldn't find it.
Now it is available
So, will download right away!

It's what I use ... But forget about using Calendar with the recent source Sad

I also have problems with Flash 8 ...

Not that Flash 8 is really needed yet.

Cheers

Is it OK to download and install using the Full Installer or does some work need to be done for this to load and run properly under Puppy 1.0.4?

I have run into an inconvenient message filter limitation in Mozilla Mail (only 3 per filter vs unlimited in FireFox).

There're a few SeaMonkey themes available @ ( http://users.imag.net/~crowkeep/mozilla/mozilla.html ) if anyone is interested. I use Breeze (and GNOME-fx on Firefox).

Darn, I downloaded the source, then found that all the files are in DOS format, with cr/lf on end of every line. Can't configure it.
Don't have any tool to recursively fix it, so will complain at the seamonkey website.

What is the fix to that?
Would loading it into Chubby Puppy OO Writer or Abiword and saving in a Linux plain text format do it?
This must be a common problem - I remember coming across it.

No, it's not just one file, it's hundreds of files!

Anyway, I received a reply from my contact Alex on the Seamonkey project and they have already uploaded a fixed source tarball.
