New in version 2.0 Alpha 2 (December 11th, 2008)

  • The first step towards customizable toolbars has been made: The icon size and whether to display icons and/or text can be chosen spearately for every major toolbar in in both the browser and MailNews components via their context menu.
  • The MailNews component now includes support for reading RSS and Atom feeds, And the browser detects feeds offered by web pages.

New in version 2.0 Alpha 1 (October 6th, 2008)

  • SeaMonkey switched to Toolkit, the same backend Firefox uses internally. Due to this change SeaMonkey is now much closer to Firefox as far as user profiles, add-ons and functionality of user interface elements are concerned.
  • The default location of user profiles has changed. Legacy profiles, e.g. from SeaMonkey 1.x, are migrated automatically, excluding third-party add-ons (extensions and themes). The old profile will not be touched (instead, copies are made).
  • The new Add-on Manager allows to install, update, disable and remove extensions (add-ons), themes and plugins using the same mechanisms Firefox uses. This should ease extension management and development considerably.
  • Gecko, the rendering engine used in SeaMonkey, has seen many improvements since the version used in the last stable release. Changes range from a better graphics backend (Cairo/Thebes) to improved support for fonts, CSS, DOM and JavaScript. SeaMonkey 2.0 Alpha 1 passes the Acid2 test and most of Acid3.
  • Most of the icons in the default theme have been exchanged for newer images that fit better with the look of modern desktop environments.
  • Support for Windows 95, 98, Me and NT 4 was dropped. GTK 2.10 is now required on Linux/UNIX. Support for Mac OS X 10.3 ("Panther") was also dropped.
