Thread Title:
Rest in Pieces, Mozilla Browser Suite
Thread Description:

BetaNews report that Mozilla have finally laid the Mozilla suite to rest, and will now concentrate solely on Firefox and Thunderbird.

The Mozilla Foundation is calling it a day and officially putting to rest the Mozilla Application Suite, known as Seamonkey. No further development will be done on old-man Mozilla, as focus shifts entirely to newcomers Firefox and Thunderbird. But the legacy browser will live on with a new name and independent community.

Although phasing out the Mozilla suite has been a longstanding plan for the Mozilla Foundation, it wasn't clear when it would actually occur. Version 1.7 was referred to on project roadmaps as the "final stable branch," but officials also stated, "We are not retiring the Seamonkey application suite, or its XPFE front end, in the foreseeable future."

Good riddance.
