The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop the SeaMonkey all-in-one internet application suite (see below). Such a software suite was previously made popular by Netscape and Mozilla, and the SeaMonkey project continues to develop and deliver high-quality updates to this concept. Containing an Internet browser, email & newsgroup client, HTML editor, IRC chat and web development tools, SeaMonkey is sure to appeal to advanced users, web developers and corporate users.
Today, the SeaMonkey project released a new version of its all-in-one internet
suite. SeaMonkey 1.1.8 closes several security vulnerabilities and fixes several
smaller problems found in previous versions. With that, SeaMonkey stays at the
same level of security as its sibling Firefox, which is issuing updates for the
same problems this week as well.
The SeaMonkey team urges users of older SeaMonkey versions, including the
SeaMonkey 1.0.x series, which no longer receives security updates, 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 1.1.8
version. All these older software packages suffer from a large and steadily
increasing number of security vulnerabilities because they are no longer being
maintained. SeaMonkey 1.1.8 is a modern, drop-in replacement, providing the same
familiar suite functionality with additional features and fully up to date
SeaMonkey 1.1.8 is available for free download from the open source project's website.
