Mozilla Seamonkey 2.0 RC2

seamonkeyA little bit more than a week ago we previewed the first release candidate of the Mozilla Seamonkey 2.0 Internet suite. The program, which started of with code based on Netscape Communicator, combines not only a web browser but also an email client, IRC client, instant messenger, newsgroup client and HTML editor in the application. The main benefit of this approach is obviously that all these popular application types are accessible from within the interface of one application opposed to installing different applications for the various purposes.

The second release candidate of Seamonkey 2.0 is already available for download at the Mozilla website. There it is available for all supported operating systems and languages.

According to a post in the Seamonkey newsgroup no separate release notes are being published for release candidates. The developers of Seamonkey 2.0 have therefor not published release notes for this new release. According to sources it should be the last release candidate before the final release of the Internet suite.

Seamonkey 2.0 RC2 can be downloaded from the Mozilla Seamonkey website. The Usenet post announcing the second release candidate can be accessed here.

    SeaMonkey sounds like a really good approach. It will become a one stop shop for all internet related needs. I hope they add modules for supporting different social networking applications also in there.
