First Linux Trunk Nightly Build of Mozilla Thunderbird Available

Sunday May 4th, 2003

joe writes in with some news from the Mozilla Thunderbird project page: "We have our first official Linux nightly build for the first time since Thunderbird moved to the trunk. Not to be out done, we also have a new Windows nightly which includes the latest code reduction work mentioned on May 2nd." Both builds can be downloaded from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/nightly/2003-05-03-trunk/. More information about the footprint reduction can be found in the change log.

I am just wondering what is the proper name would be used in the mozillazine main page?

As at today (2003.5.6), it shows 'px0.5' a the releases and 'Fb' for forum name and Nightlies. This might cause confusion to the 1st time visitors.

According to the new 'Mozilla Branding Strategy' dated April 25th:

Quote Begin--- 3. When referring to Thunderbird or Firebird before or during the 1.4 release cycle, make sure to use the project name with Mozilla pre-pended as "Mozilla Thunderbird" or "Mozilla Firebird" instead of Mozilla alone or Firebird/Thunderbird alone.

4. Use the names "Mozilla Browser" and "Mozilla Mail" to describe the Firebird and Thunderbird projects after the 1.4 release. Quote ended------

As Mozilla 1.5 is coming very soon, why we should not use "MF" and "MT" during Mozilla 1.4 development cycle or use "MB" or "MM" directly?
