On the SeaMonkey menu bar, select [Edit  Preferences].  Under
Category on the Preferences window, select [Advanced  Software
Installation].  On the Software Installation pane, put a check in the
checkbox for Check for updates.  Then select the radio button for the
frequency you wish.  Note that, even for the Weekly radio button, you
will not necessarily be notified immediately, especially if the update
became available just an hour after your most recent check.


Thus proving the value of reading this group and Rob letting us know. Thanks, 
Rob!

I don't believe that auto-notification ability was built into SM1,


This is wrong. Weekly and monthly checks are available:

with the majority of work now going into SM2, I don't believe the
auto-download will ever make it into SM1


This is right. SM1 only leads to the Download page and one has to 
download the new version manually. But as stated above, the notification 
is there and it leads directly to the corresponding Seamonkey website. :-)

Ohh!! It did have the notification capability!! My mistake.

 es-ES langpack is available through releases.mozilla.org. The link in
 the Releases page of seamonkey-project.org works OK, I think because

 The releases module is always trimmed to the last bunch of releases so
 that a large number of mirrors can easily sync it in a timely manner.
 I get informed of those trims and adjust URLs accordingly.

 Since we have a link in our localization site to the langpack, would
 it be polite if I change the URL to ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/ too? I
 could link to our own local copy, but I think it is better if
 mozilla.org / Seamonkey Council can have as much metrics as possible
 of downloads.

 We don't get metrics from direct ftp.m.o downloads, but we prefer
 linking there as those servers are highly reliable and well-checked
 for problems.

To ALL: I did manage to download ver. 1.1.17, but had to make 3
different trys at it! Seems the arrow of the download is NOT the one to
click on to do so, nor the far left button, only the words of the
download phrase worked! I do not remember it being that much trouble,
before! :-\

Hi all,

Today, the SeaMonkey project released a new version of its all-in-one 
Internet suite. SeaMonkey 1.1.17 closes several security vulnerabilities 
and fixes a few smaller problems found in previous versions. With that, 
SeaMonkey stays at the same level of security as its sibling Firefox 2, 
which is issuing updates for the same problems this week as well.


The SeaMonkey team urges users of older SeaMonkey versions, including 
the SeaMonkey 1.0.x series, which no longer receives security updates, 
to upgrade. Additionally, the team continues to strongly urge people 
still using the old Mozilla Suite or Netscape 4, 6 or 7 to upgrade to 
the new SeaMonkey 1.1.17 version. All these older software packages 
suffer from a large and steadily increasing number of security 
vulnerabilities because they are no longer being maintained. SeaMonkey 
1.1.17 is a modern, drop-in replacement, providing the same familiar 
suite functionality with additional features and fully up to date security.


SeaMonkey 1.1.17 is available for free download from the open source 
project's website at www.seamonkey-project.org.
