Software Update: Mozilla SeaMonkey 2.29

After versions 2.27 and 2.28 were canceled due to issues, Mozilla has now released version 2.29 of SeaMonkey. SeaMonkey is the continuation of the former Mozilla Application Suite and consists of a web browser and programs for e-mailing and reading news. A simple HTML editor is also provided. Unlike the Mozilla Application Suite, SeaMonkey is maintained by the community, while the SeaMonkey Council oversees maintenance. The list of changes for this release is as follows:
