Oops, I seem to had missed this news: the community-driven Mozilla suite is now officially known as SeaMonkey, which was originally the codename of the Mozilla Application Suite. An alpha version will be out within the next few weeks. Let's see what it will turn into. ;-)
P.S. The version number will be reset as 1.0. So it will be SeaMonkey 1.0, not SeaMonkey 1.8.
