Mozilla Thunderbird 2 Released

Wednesday April 18th, 2007

Scott MacGregor of Team Thunderbird writes in with news of the release of Mozilla Thunderbird 2: "Thunderbird 2 is now available for download on Windows, Mac and Linux in over 35 languages. Thunderbird 2 offers easy ways to manage and organize your email with message tags, advanced folder views, message history navigation, find as you type, and improved new mail alert notifications. Thunderbird 2 also includes a refreshed user interface and support for Microsoft Vista.

"Thunderbird 1.5.0.x users will be offered Thunderbird 2 via software update at a later date. Those wishing to upgrade now are therefore advised to download and install Thunderbird 2 manually.

"The Thunderbird 2 features page has more details about the new features in Thunderbird 2. The Thunderbird 2 Release Notes have more specific information. The Rumbling Edge has a list of notable bug fixes in Thunderbird 2.

"We also want to extend a huge thanks to everyone in the MozillaZine community for their help and support with Thunderbird 2 over the past year. We wouldn't have been able to release Thunderbird without you. A special thanks to the awesome forum moderators who spend so much time answering questions and to the folks who help organize and participate in our weekly test threads here at MozillaZine."

Another 'good' story on installing Thunderbird 2 (version 2.0.0.9).

I allready had an installed TB1.5 so, when installing TB2 I chose a 'Custom install', then I simply changed the install-path to C:\program files\Mozilla thunderbird2\ (so i added a 2 to the path). I did the same for the menu-shortcut 'Thunderbird 2' and continued installing it. (I wasn't sure if it would work though).

After installing I started TB2 and it all worked mighty fine! (I have my mailfolders in another folder on another drive and TB2 configured it without any problems) It found all my profiles (5 accounts) and i have all my mail as they were within TB1.5.

So right now i am able to run both versions, but i'm sure i will be using TB2.0 from here on.

Great update Moz-team, thanks!
