The SeaMonkey project is proud to present SeaMonkey 2.48 Beta 1:

If you hit the untrusted connection problem with a wrong https certificate when trying to download it you can get it directly from:

https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/seamonk ... es/2.48b1/

I really should put this into the release notes... :roll:

This is a Beta version mostly for testing purposes but it should be stable for general use.

If you are using Adrians 2.48 or 2.49 imho don't bother. Same if 2.46 works fine for you. Remember its a Beta so backup your profile. But if you test it we would be glad if you report any bugs you find. Please check the release notes for known problems.

If you are still on 2.39b1 (is still anyone using it at this point in time?) updates are not yet working. Ewong is trying to fix this. Because of a changed distribution server it would also impact 2.46 to 2.48 updates later if he does not succeed.

A regular 2.48 will follow (hopefully) soon. Afterwards we will switch to 2.49 ESR as fast as we can to be on par with Firefox ESR 52.

Been using this for a day now. So far no problems. To my surprise, all 9 of my add on's came over without any problems.

Yes, 2.48 is on par with Firefox 51.0.2 (or whatever the latest release on that branch was). After that, 2.49 will be released with current milestone (thus, 52.1.0 at the moment).

Well that is not exactly true for Beta 1. Beta 1 is based on the last beta source code before the Firefox 51 release and so more 51.0.0.

The 2.48 release is now being made and should hopefully be ready soon. It will be based on the latest 51 code available and so matches or surpasses the latest Firefox 51.

If the infrastructure doesn't give up before 2.49.1 ESR should then follow very soon :)

Yeah, s/2.48 is/2.48 will be/ would have removed the ambiguity...

We're up to 54.0b12 (32-bit) on the Firefox side. Any progress?

What FF is "up to" doesn't really matter (at this point), since we're going to be on the ESR train (so FF 52).
An official SeaMonkey release will be released "when its done".

If you want to test/play on that route, I'd go with Akalla 2.49.1 ESR's (latest-comm-esr), https://l10n.mozilla-community.org/~aka ... y/nightly/, which are available in both 32 & 64-bit versions.

the rube,

Went that route... loaded it up inside a 2.46 Portable Apps Seamonkey. Have had no problems with it so far and think it better than 2.46/8. (User agent: Mozilla/5.0 Windows NT 10.0; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 SeaMonkey/2.49.1 Build identifier: 20170511042150).

I think 2.49xxx ESR is going to be a really good browser. Even better when the Portable Apps version officially comes out. My way was/is a kludge, as in starting the install of the executable Akalla, then copying and pasting the Seamonkey folders from my Windows TEMP folder into the portable version where they belong, on my computer that is:

d:\SeamonkeyPortable\App\Seamonkey\

Use it on my SSD drive D: at home and on an usb stick on the road. Windows 10 Home
