I think it missed the deadline for 0.8.1 inclusion.
Only one thing to say : coolioness! I'd say it's about three times faster for me on a very low end computer. Displaying the first message still takes a long time for some reason, but once that's done, it is very much like Netscape 4. I can't wait to see the few bugs in there squashed, and a few images will do it. Thanks mailnews team! Fabian.
Fabian, if it's only the very first message that takes a long time to display try renaming your history.mab (I think thats the name, or maybe history.dat) file and see if that helps. Others who were experiencing a really long delay on the initial message had some corruption (or it had grown to an outrageous size) in a history file. Just in case it helps :)
I tried out the March 19 branch, and it to me seemed way, way slower than before. Not even usable.
Guess I'll try the March 20 builds.

I tried out the March 19th trunk build and it was butt slow - wouldn't even load a single message for over 10minutes. Apparently this was the result of a packaging problem, today's (March 20th) build is speedy! Joseph Elwell

What else could this Outliner widget be used for? I mean it's just a listbox, right? Any chances that other aspects of Mozilla may start using Outliner? Like the Chatzilla name display? What about the Cookie Manager? (that's in dire need of a speed increase)
