Yes, it is, we cannot release a stable SeaMonkey release without a
stable mail/news backend, which we only will have once Thunderbird 3
goes into at least RC phase.
That said, we'll have a first beta of SM2 in the next few weeks, a
second beta a few weeks later and then a final another few weeks later.
We should be on the way now and pick up a good drive towards final. It's
a bit unfortunate that the duration between Alpha 3 and Beta 1 grew
significantly longer than expected, but things should be moving more
smoothly from now on.
Unfortunately I can't talk in real schedules right now, as there's one
large feature for the mail backend (indexing all data to allow for fast
and easy search across all messages and addresses) is being worked on
still, and that feature is what's pushing out Thunderbird and SeaMonkey
beta release dates right now.
Thanks. Will this indexing get rid of the annoying feature where a cross-posted
news message that is read in one group is not seen as read in another?
