Subject: Support For SeaMonkey 1.x Dropped
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.mozilla.announce
Date: Wednesday 17th March 2010 02:35:22 UTC (over 6 years ago)
In January 2006, SeaMonkey 1.0 was released, a 1.1 release followed a 
year later. Another three years later, the SeaMonkey project is 
discontinuing support for the SeaMonkey 1.x series today in favor of 
SeaMonkey 2.0, which is not only more modern, but also maintained for 
stability and security problems.

As the SeaMonkey 1.x series no longer receives security updates, due to 
resource constraints, the SeaMonkey team strongly urges users of that 
series to upgrade. Additionally, the team continues to strongly urge 
people still using the old Mozilla Suite or Netscape 4, 6 or 7 to 
upgrade to the new SeaMonkey 2.0 version. All these older software 
packages suffer from a large, and steadily increasing, number of 
security vulnerabilities because they are no longer being maintained.

Everyone on reasonably modern operating systems is urged to switch to 
the newest release available for free download from the open source 
project's website at www.seamonkey-project.org, providing the familiar 
suite functionality in a remodernized application with additional 
features and fully up to date security.
For the few who can't afford that, a last 1.x release is available.
SeaMonkey 1.1.19 does fix a few security issues, but not all known 
security vulnerabilites, some of which may even be grave. Those are only 
fixed in the new SeaMonkey 2.0, which will continue to be maintained for 
quite some time and updated for any security issues as they might arise, 
while the team is working on evolving the well-known suite even further 
in future versions.
