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.

I guess we have to sort out what functions to include in core 1.5.

Currently, Firebird have quite some extensions that I think should be in the "core" structure. For example, Smooth Scroll and Language Menu.

It is very annoying when too many commonly used functions become extensions. But of course, functions like User Agent Toolbar and Googlebar should be extensions.

Off topic: I still cannot agree with the design of that search bar in Firebird. I think mozilla's design of search/location bar is a lot better.
