New Mozilla Thunderbird builds with support for installing extensions have been released. Read Scott MacGregor's Thunderbird Builds forum posting for more details. A page of information about creating extensions has been published and Scott has already released the first official add-on, Offline Support. More extensions are available from Extension Room, which also hosts XUL-based add-ons for other Mozilla products.

Mozilla is really only for developers, anyway, and end users are supposed to be those of the Netscape product that is eventually based on the stable Mozilla release. So, who knows how long from now, if Netscape releases--for example, version 8.0--and it's based on our Birds, then it very well may come with what a lot of end users want. That's its target audience. Mozilla, however, is just supposed to be unsupported and primarily for developers (although, since it's used for Netscape, it's pretty good for "normal" people, too!).

Just my thoughts...
