I've uploaded a build of SeaMonkey 2.28 that corresponds to the recently released Firefox 31.8.0 beta 5, hobbes.nmsu.edu/h-search.php
Based on the excellent work by Bitwise on the Gecko engine.
Unluckily there never was a SeaMonkey 2.28 release due to hardware problems and lack of manpower at the SeaMonkey project so this release is truly beta and probably has some minor problems. For me session restore and the cache system seem subtly broken. One add-on broke history and I had to restore places.sqlite3 from backup so make sure you back up your profile before upgrading.
There are also no language packages available. Success has been reported with using the sm 2.29 and sm 2.29b4 language packs. Editing the required version is required by unzipping the language pack and changing the version number in install.rdf (em:minVersion and em:maxVersion) and re-zipping to the same name.
*bww bitwise works GmbH progress update July 24, 2015*
In the last couple of week we have been working on the tasks below.
The fifth beta for Firefox is online now. Please see Firefox 31 ESR <https://github.com/bitwiseworks/mozilla-os2/releases/tag/FIREFOX_31_8_0esr_RELEASE_OS2_Beta_5> for the complete announcement and download information.
One of our goals for Firefox 31 was to enable sound support again. For this we hired Myung-Hun KO to add his libkai to Firefox. Unfortunately some sound support is still not working, as we could not enable FFMPEG support completely. The reason for this is that Firefox itself doesn't support FFMPEG library completely in version 31. In version 38, which is now in ESR state as well, this support is complete. Because of that we decided to leave Firefox 31 ESR after this beta and move on to Firefox 38 ESR. This will bring us at such a current browser level we haven't been able to have for a long time.
If you are interested to see the progress on Firefox, then please have a look at Firefox for eCS (OS/2) <https://github.com/bitwiseworks/mozilla-os2>
If you are interested to see the progress on SWT/Eclipse, then please have a look at Eclipse (SWT) for eCS (OS/2) <https://github.com/bitwiseworks/eclipse.platform.swt>.
We are forming a new team to port the latest VirtualBox Host to eCS (OS/2). Right now we are in the negotiation phase with developers. The SVN/wiki and trac are already partially done. We reused the existing one from netlabs.org. If you are interested to see the progress of this port, then please have a look at VirtualBox for eCS (OS/2). <trac.netlabs.org/vbox>
If you want to support us or a specific project then please check out our online shop <www.bitwiseworks.com/shop>.
You are one of the people making the future possible!
