Mozilla Updates

Several Mozilla application has been updated and Pat has managed to give an update to the -stable tree. The 2.0 version is being moved to /extra and Pat continues to maintain the Firefox 1.5.0.x version along with new Thunderbird and SeaMonkey packages which has just been released few days ago.

Here are the latest -stable changelog:
Thu Nov 9 18:04:51 CST 2006
extra/mozilla-firefox-2.0/mozilla-firefox-2.0-i686-1.tgz: Moved from /patches, since it was pointed out that this sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH to use the libraries in /usr/lib/firefox-2.0/ which aren't compatible with the SeaMonkey libraries that are used to compile the gxine plugin, breaking it. I'm currently looking for a workaround for this issue, but meanwhile using firefox-1.5.0.8 with the gxine plugin works just fine. Honestly, I hadn't expected to see another firefox-1.x release once 2.0 came out or I might not have added it to Slackware 11.0 after the release...
