The open-source group determined to keep alive the last Internet suite updated its SeaMonkey bundle Thursday with both security fixes and new code that brought its applications up to par with Mozilla's Firefox 2 and Thunderbird 2.

SeaMonkey 1.1, which was released in versions for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, is the follow-on to the now-defunct Mozilla Suite, a collection of Internet applications that included browser, e-mail client, newsgroup reader, and HTML editor. When Mozilla spiked its suite, a group of volunteer developers launched the SeaMonkey project. Mozilla still provides some support, including hosting the project's Web site.

The bundle's browser is based on Firefox 2.0, the newest edition of Mozilla's application, while the e-mailer takes its technology from Thunderbird 2.0. Other enhancements to v. 1.1 include a new version of the ChatZilla chat client, e-mail message tagging, and browser spell-check.

SeaMonkey 1.1 can be downloaded from the project's Web site.
