New Mozilla Thunderbird Roadmap Published

Saturday September 13th, 2003

Following the release of Mozilla Thunderbird 0.2, an updated Thunderbird Roadmap has been published. The document outlines the near-term development plans for the standalone mail and newsgroups application and includes details about the forthcoming 0.3 milestone. This release, which will primarily be a bugfix update, will ship at the same time as Mozilla 1.5 and from the same branch. Thunderbird changes made on the trunk will become part of Thunderbird 0.4.

Depends how you look at it. It's not a redesign of all the components - it's just changing the UI and splitting it up. Most of the code in Mozilla, Firebird, Thunderbird, etc is in the back-end, and there's no "huge-ass" change in that so far or planned.

It depends if you're looking at it from a user point of view or from a developer point of view. The Mozilla version numbering has always been from a developer point of view (otherwise they might have done something like Netscape did - started at 6.0 and gone up to 7.1 in the same time).
