Phoenix 0.3 Delayed Until Next Week

Wednesday October 9th, 2002

As mentioned by Blake Ross in the Phoenix General forum, Phoenix 0.3 has been delayed until next week. Originally, the plan was to release 0.3 yesterday. The delay means that Phoenix can take advantage of the extra stability offered by the trunk freeze.

In related news, Blake Ross has begun working on Thunderbird (formerly Minotaur), a stand-alone mail client to accompany Phoenix. It is expected that Thunderbird 0.1 will be released around the same time as Phoenix 0.5.

Alright, Phoenix looks cool and all, but I doubt I'll be using it. I'd miss the features and I really want an integrated (or tightly coupled) e-mail client. But, if Phoenix can, in what, 3 weeks, make customizable toolbars, why is mozilla no closer to doing this than they were 3 YEARS AGO?!?!

I guess this brings up a different question. Given the imagination of the Phoenix folks, couldn't they benifit mozilla more by working on the mozilla browser?
