Saturday May 1st, 2004

Scott MacGregor writes: "Our hopefully final set of Thunderbird 0.6 candidate builds are available for testing on all platforms. We could use help testing these bits to help find any last minute issues as we come down the final stretch for this release. For more information about where to get the builds and to report issues with the build, see my post in the forums."

Thunderbird 0.6 includes a new Windows installer, new artwork, upgraded junk mail controls, and a slew of other new features. Read more about it in the draft release notes.

You are right about the memory. The programs are being build "statically" which means they each use thier own GRE (Gecko Runtime Environment). If I recall, Ben said they are built like this so their individual filesize is smaller. In the future (way down the road), they are all going to share the same GRE and reduce the footprint. At least that's what I remember them saying.
