New versions of my enhanced Mozilla based apps are available now via
- SeaMonkey 1.1.14 (PmW)
- PmW-Fx 184.108.40.206 (last release of PmW-Fx! see below)
- PmW-Tb 220.127.116.11
They are all based on Gecko 18.104.22.168 on the date of 2008-12-12 and built
from the exact same sources. They correspond directly to the respective
official releases of SeaMonkey, Firefox, and hopefully Thunderbird.
All applications need libc063.dll to run.
This Gecko 22.214.171.124-based release picks up all the changes done by Mozilla
since my Gecko 126.96.36.199 release, i.e. between 2008-10-30 and 2008-12-02.
This includes fixes for approximately 9 security issues, 2 to 4 of which
are rated critical (the exact numbers depend on the product).
No OS/2 specific changes were done since the last release.
Note1: Firefox 188.8.131.52 that will be released very soon only fixes a
Windows problem; I will not rebuild just to get a new version number.
Note2: because Mozilla does not support Firefox 2 any longer this will very
likely be the last release of PmW-Fx! I will try to continue to provide
PmW-Tb and SeaMonkey (PmW) as time allows and official releases are done.
But for a standalone browser, please look at Firefox 3.0.5 or later.
Note3: If you have specific reasons why you haven't updated to Firefox
3.0.x yet, please open a bug on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org or post in the
newsgroup mozilla.dev.ports.os2. Perhaps there is something that I don't
know about and that can be easily improved.
