Real life did cause a delay but building has finally started:
https://blog.seamonkey-project.org/2018 ... -49-2-and/

Progress seems to be good and the candidates seem to work fine.

ewong hope to get updates working but due to the nature of the beast we will see if this is the case when the release is done.

If you want to try a candidate please backup your profile before installing.

Thanks so much!

Are the Composer insertion, copy/paste, etc. capabilities that were a problem with 2.49.1 fixed in 2.49.2? I was advised to wait until 2.49.2 when the fix should be operable.

Working for me as well so far, lightning calendar too, no update required

I was getting lots of script errors using 2.49.1 when viewing pages from reuters and these seem to be cured on 2.49.2

FYI, I tried build 1, everything worked perfectly except for one niggling problem. Had to minimize browser to see messaging windows. Not a clue why. Did not install into program folder, instead extracted entire SeaMonkey subfolders into app/Seamonkey folder (I use Portable SeaMonkey). About confirmed that I had 2.49.2 installed at that point.

Have reverted to 2.49.1 for now... will try again when official or next build comes out.

This is probably the release version. ewong is in the verification stage now and I doubt a build 2 is needed. And even then nothing would change in the source.

Might be an extension problem. Also there is some tightend security. Try setting layout.css.moz-document.content.enabled to true if you use stylish or user css which uses moz-document See Bug 1035091.

I do hope not, it's crashing every few hours here.

Including, ironically, just now as I hit the Help> Trouble Shoot menu entry to get the Build ID for this post! - 20180205032537

Obviously, as always, this may turn out to be something at my end so people shouldn't take this as a universal given with this build.

Do you have a crash id? Symbols are probably not yet up but maybe I find something. So far this is rock solid for me but I am not using mail in this release. For this I use a 2.53 in a vm.

Random selection. Sometimes crashes are not sending reports as well.

*Edited out crash reports*

There's no obvious pattern and the bug reports seem to nearly (always?) have a different reason each time. For the time being I've gone back to 2.49.1, but when stuff is less important to get done, I'll put 2.49.2 back on and continue to wade through/disable my few extensions to try to see if the perp is at my end.

Frank, I looked at the crashes and they are all over the place. A guess would be old Nvidia driver or some problem in Spidermonkey or core. There were some changes in the source but nothing points out.

Same here:
https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/topcras ... ion=2.49.2

So far looks like a "normal" release.
