SeaMonkey 2.0a2 available

December 18th, 2008 Comments off

Someone asked me for a package for SeaMonkey 2 which is currently under development. So here it is in mozilla:beta with most likely some rough edges. It’s an early preview package and not meant for production use but if someone wants to give me some feedback feel free.
It’s currently not possible to install it side by side with SeaMonkey 1.1 but I’ll probably make that possible in the near future.

Firefox 3.1b2 available

December 10th, 2008 3 comments

Yesterday I took the time to update to Firefox 3.1b2 (upstream release announcement) in mozilla:beta and fixed the outstanding build issues (gcc complaints) for 11.1 and Factory. What is still missing are the translations so it’s only available in en-US for now. Not every feature from openSUSE’s Firefox 3.0 package has been ported to 3.1 yet (namely gconf/lockdown integration) but it’s rather complete besides of the two things above.

openSUSE 11.1 support and Lightning

December 5th, 2008 8 comments

As with the release of openSUSE 11.1rc1 I’ve enabled openSUSE_11.1 for the mozilla repository. So feel free to add it to your local repositories.

Another news is that I’ve added the package MozillaThunderbird-lightning which contains Mozilla’s calendar extension for Thunderbird. I’ve planned this years ago but for different reasons (including gcc bugs that didn’t happen until Duncan asked me to add his Lightning package to the mozilla repo just yesterday). The reason for adding that extension was simply that you can’t get it as x86-64 version from upstream.

And as of today openSUSE 10.2 was removed from the buildservice which means that there are no more mozilla updates for that platform. I’m wondering how many people out there still rely on those since it’s possible to reenable support for that again but I’ll only consider that if there is real demand for it. So let me know and speak up 😉
