SeaMonkey 2.0 RC2 arrives
The Mozilla developers have announced the availability of the second release candidate of version 2.0 of its SeaMonkey "all-in-one internet application suite". The successor to the old Netscape Communicator and Mozilla Application suites includes a web browser with advanced email and newsgroup support, an IRC chat client and HTML editing support.
More details about the release can be found in the SeaMonkey 2.0 preliminary release notes (RCs don't receive separate release notes) and the preliminary change log. SeaMonkey 2.0 RC2 is available to download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. As SeaMonkey 2.0 is based on the 3.5.x branch of Firefox, the developers note that it no longer supports Windows 95, 98, ME, NT or Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther). The final version of SeaMonkey 2.0 is scheduled to be released "no earlier than October 26th".
SeaMonkey binaries are released under the Mozilla SeaMonkey End-User Software License Agreement and the source code is released under disjunctive tri-licensing that includes the Mozilla Public Licence, GPLv2 and LGPLv2.1.
