Thunderbird hits 1,000,000 in 10 days

My first reaction was: WOW. Ok, a browser reaching a million is kind of normal, as it is something that everyone will use when using a computer. But an email client? Hitting a million is a probability esp with corporations using Thunderbird but in a mere 10 days? Thus, WOW. You are doing a great job, Mozilla. Kudos to the Thunderbird team esp Scott MacGregor & the rest. Comes with 21 languages too. WOW.

Now we have 2 projects out released as 1.0 which are getting the headlines. That’s Firefox + Thunderbird. With 2 great “Edging” sites, TBE & TRE. There is hope as (hopefully) Mozilla expands to include more developers under its hood to continue on projects like Sunbird (Calendar) and Nvu (WYSIWYG editor) (Again hopefully, though improbable). They already have developers such as Daniel Glazman for Nvu, but it’ll be great if more joined in. Not to forget (hopefully) The Shining Edge (Sunbird) or The N-View Edge (Nvu). Anyway that’s enough of dreaming. 🙂

Here’s some articles + reviews to read over @ these few sites:

2004-12-10 to 2004-12-16 Trunk builds

  • Fixed: 274546 – quota_data does not parse QUOTAROOT reponse per RFC
  • Fixed: 254462 – Thunderbird changes for Proper Software Update
  • Fixed: 273356 – Return receipts not working on POP3 – both sending & receiving using Global Inbox

  • Since 23rd Dec 01: 116692 – Define official Mozilla LDAP schema extension
  • Since 26th May 04: 244780 – Change in Image Loading policy broke “Save Image As”
  • Since 13th Sep 04: 259212 – Get All New Messages is not functioning
  • Since 17th Sep 04: 260034 – Cannot send mail if temporary directory contains non-ascii characters

There is a post over @mozillaZine which states that Scott MacGregor and his team of developers are taking a break after the release of Thunderbird 1.0. Thus, do not be alarmed if the trunk builds have the version number 0.6.0+. Branch builds branched off at 0.7 – 1.0, so until (hopefully) the New Year, when the Thunderbird developers return from their well-deserved break, the branch and trunk will be merged. That said, some of the more recent features in the branch, such as UI improvements, may not be in these few days’ trunk builds yet.
