Mozilla Thunderbird Released

Thursday August 2nd, 2007

The Mozilla Corporation has released Mozilla Thunderbird This update fixes two security issues, which are detailed in the Thunderbird section of the Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories page (they're the same bugs that were eliminated in the equivalent Mozilla Firefox release earlier this week).

The latest version of Thunderbird can be downloaded from the Thunderbird product page and will be offered to existing Thunderbird 2 users via the software update system. More general information about Thunderbird can be found in the Thunderbird Release Notes. An update to the Thunderbird 1.5 line is expected shortly.

How does the coming demotion of Mozilla Thunderbird from a "product" to a "project" affect future releases?

Probably not at all, just like there have been SeaMonkey builds continuously since Mozilla announced that they would no longer develop the Mozilla Application Suite. Besides, from Mitchell Baker's blog it looks like "demotion to a project" is currently the worst case scenario. <>

Hello, There are e-mails that do not deserve to be saved in the sent message folder. It would be nice if Thunderbird had an option that would prevent that saving.

I agree with you, sartenose! Many unexpected email in my account, almost all are spam. I hope there is a extension for that problem.
