Mozilla Firebird 0.7 and Mozilla Thunderbird 0.3 Release Candidates

Sunday September 28th, 2003

alanjstr wrote in to tell us that release candidate builds of Mozilla Firebird 0.7 are now available. Builds can be downloaded for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firebird/nightly/latest-0.7. The code for Firebird 0.7 will come from the Mozilla 1.5 branch, rather than the trunk.

Firebird is not the only Mozilla standalone application to be nearing a milestone release: Mozilla Thunderbird 0.3 is now up to its second release candidate with builds available from ftp.mozilla.org/pub/thunderbird/nightly/2003-09-24-1.5. Like Firebird, Thunderbird 0.3 will come from the 1.5 branch, with developers hoping for a simultaneous release of Mozilla 1.5 and Thunderbird 0.3.


#4 Cause of the crash ...

Oh man, I just found the cause of the crash: FB is STILL using the plugin directory from the Mozilla profile, i.e. .mozilla/plugins ! That had a link to an old Java plugin version that caused the crash. Why does FB still use Mozilla"s plugin dir? Isn't it confusing enought that its own profile dir is still called "phoenix" ?
