Phoenix and Minotaur to be renamed Firebird and Thunderbird

Asa Dotzler writes: "After months of discussion and further months of legal investigation, we're finally comfortable moving forward with new names. The new name for the Phoenix browser is 'Firebird'. The documentation and product strings will be updated soon. In addition to securing Firebird, we've also got the OK from those contributing legal resources to use the name 'Thunderbird' for a mail client. Hopefully this will be the end of naming legal issues for a while."

" doubt it would ever be called "Firebird 1.5". More likely "Mozilla Firebird 1.5" or "Mozilla Browser 1.5". Yes and we can distribute Both In the same Installer FireBird 1.5 (The Database ) + Firebird 1.5 (The Browser) Firebird Database Server is only 3MBytes And we have a embeded server of about 700k . PS: You know i just kidding :) but this shows how confused people will be when they will have two installers with the same name :FirebirdSetup.exe and FirebirdSetup.exe (Please choose the right version ....)
