Default Anybody using Seamonkey 2 ?

Hi,

I noticed that the Seamonkey Project has released Seamonkey 2.0. I
assume this is the same one that is currently masked and keyworded in
the tree. Is anyone using it already? Any problems? Lose any old
emails or settings that you can notice? Problems with bugs or things
not working?

[OT sort of] My brother needs to upgrade soon and he is currently using
windoze XP and Seamonkey 1. I tried to do a install the other day but
it sort of ran into a issue of locking up part way through the install.
He didn't lose anything but I did have to go back to the old version to
get it working again. Anyone here run into a similar problem? I can't
recall exactly where it locked up but it was only about 20% or so of the
way through according to the little bar thingy. I plan to install Linux
on his rig once all this KDE stuff gets sorted out. [/OT]

Thinking about the upgrade, just looking to see if I should or not since
it has some sort of conversion process going on.

For me it's working nicely, I use the ebuild in the mozilla overlay
though. However, I only use the browser, I compile it with moznocompose
moznoirc moznomail moznoroaming, so I don't know how the rest of the
components work. Some people have been complaining about the mail reader in
the seamonkey mailing list lately, so you might want to check the mails
there.

Call me chicken, I'll wait a little bit to let them fix the bugs. I use
almost the whole thing so I want to be sure it is safe.

Thanks for the reply tho.

If I were using the mail stuff I'd certainly do that. I would wait until I
am relatively sure that everything is going to work. For web usage it
really doesn't matter to have an occasional problem, and anyway in that
regard seamonkey 2 is going pretty well. But mail is another story.

In any case, if you are going to test it be sure to make backups, just in
case.

Oh I will be making backups for sure. Seamonkey is sort of like KDE4,
I'm hoping to be able to use the new ones real soon. KDE4 still has a
few things missing that makes it unusable for me. It is getting a LOT
closer tho.

Glad to hear the web browsing part is good tho.

Thanks.
