several weeks of work and testing, we hearby announce the first stable release of Iceape-UXP, a
classic suite based on SeaMonkey. While our primary focus remains Icedove-UXP, and Iceweasel-UXP, users that have requested a stable suite may now enjoy using it.
Several long-standing SeaMonkey bugs have been patched in this release including some security and crash fixes.
We would also like to thank the Unified XUL Platform development team for their diligent development of the Goanna engine, which makes Iceape-UXP possible.
Some of the
new application features:
- New internal web engine with regular security updates, courtesy UXP.
- Security fixes: CVE-2016-2830, and oppertunistic encryption enabled by default.
- New feature: Complete Web Developer Tools menu including Responsive Design mode.
- Support for XUL Addons (not WebExt for privacy reasons).
Note: SeaMonkey addons may not be compatible with
Iceape-UXP but can be backported, please
make your requests on our issue tracker.
