Thanks for the info, good to know!
It's not very obvious that 1.5.4 is so different from 1.5.3 that the translations produce such fatal errors surprised smiley

Dorian,

I'm sure you already know, but it looks like a month wait for TB 2.0.0.24 and the bug fix for Mozilla Firefox Unspecified Code Execution Vulnerability. This will fix that stubborn bug that KM 1.5.4 RC can't (yet) handle.

I've been posting in MozillaZine about this and following their timetable for a bugfix which has been unresolved, but hints from those at TB give me hope for a timetable of sometime in March.

As you said, 1.5.4, except for gecko isn't very different from 1.5.3. But there are some little points in kmprefs which has been modified which need a few (2) new strings.

In chrome, when using a locale, all the strings must exist, and when using locale of 1.5.3, they don't exist, and there is a crash (weird display first), and setting doesn't work. It's normal, we call a string which doesn't exists (don't forget that en-US, when another locale is used, is no lore known by chrome.

K-Meleon translation is more flexible. If the translation isn't used, english strings then are used.

Will 1.5.4 final be an automatic update? I have the Update Checker - Occasionally looks for new K-Meleon releases ticked in Preferences: K-Meleon Plug-Ins.

I don't know, if it is realy a bug. The accel.cfg in the folder defaults/setting is ok, but the content wasn't copied to the accel.cfg in my profiles folder. I had to copy the content by hand. When the accel.cfg in my profile folder is not filled, the shortcuts don't work here.

attention folks. I've just read on the following page that Thunderbird 2.0.0.24 could be released on 3/12/2010:
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Releases/Thunderbird_2.0.0.24

once that gets done, a Seamonkey 1.1.19 release may follow.

maybe there should be another RC release of KM 1.5.4 (like RC2) before finalizing it.

The file accel.cfg in ./defaults/settings is the file that determines the normal behavior of accels.
The file accel.cfg in ./defaults/profile is copied over to each new profile.
And it contains some how-to-alter info & it can be used to customize accel behavior.

Anything else is AFAIK a bug. MfG

The default accels are NOT supposed to be double in the profile folder, only those entries a user wants to overwrite. And so far the default accels seem to work out-of-the box, as supposed to, and without copying to the profile.
Could it be that's some Vista/7 rights problem again???

The default accels don't work here. I had to copy the content of the file to my profile and now it works. I'm using XP and don't use the multi-user profiles - my profile is in the k-meleon folder.

that's great to hear, Dorian.

btw, candidate builds of TB 2.0.0.24 and SM 1.1.19 started to show up today.

so both of these could be released late next week.

that's the good news ndebord.

bad news - once Seamonkey 1.1.19 is released, that will be it...for good. I've just confirmed from KaiRo that he'll EOL the Seamonkey 1.x browser series right after SM 1.1.19 comes out. no more new SM 1.x (mozilla-1.8) nightly builds will be produced after that. yup, end of the road for the SM 1.x browser.

oh and the release date of Thunderbird 2.0.0.24 has been pushed back to Monday March 15.

4td8s,

Yes, I figured that would be the EOL for it, but at least we can keep KM 1.5.4 current for long enough to get KM 1.6 to gold. <weak grin>

FWIW, for awhile there I thought they were never going to do SM 1.1..19 or TB 2.0.0.24, despite prodding from the user base.

Apart from those two, some Linux distros are commited to a timed support for FF 2.

While security patches go into 1.8 we can probably build from it, no matter whether SM is still doing it.

p.s. I do not understand why they did not change Windows default compiler from VC6 to VC8 lately. This would have made porting Windows patches from 1.9 to 1.8 much easier. Since You can definitely build SM 1.8 with VC8...

Guenter,

Clean forgot about Linux... I do know they've had no end of problems with the new Gecko builds... FireFox helps us continue to put out a stable and excellent Gecko 1.8.xx by messing with the Penguin folks! (Go figure.)
