Thunderbird 1.5.0.4 Released

Changelog for previous release (Thunderbird 1.5.0.2) | Changelogs for other releases

Make a donation to the upkeep of The Rumbling Edge.

Released on 01 Jun 06, and this changelog was last updated on 03 Jun 06.

Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5.0.4 has been released. Release notes are available. This post lists the improvements in Thunderbird 1.5.0.4 over 1.5.0.2. This list encompasses almost every single known fix that went into this release. Do check out the known issues as well.

The Gecko 1.8.0.x branch (Thunderbird 1.5.0.x series) will only bring stability and security bug fixes. As such, no new features will be added. To synchronize the version numbering with Firefox, the 1.5.0.3 numbering was dropped in favour of 1.5.0.4.

Universal binary support for Mac OS X which provides native support for Macintosh with Intel Core processors has been added with this release. However, it must be noted that if you are running Thunderbird 1.5 or Thunderbird 1.5.0.2 on Macintosh computers with Intel Core processors under Rosetta, you will get upgraded to a PowerPC-only, Firefox 1.5.0.4 product via the automated update system. You will need to download the Thunderbird 1.5.0.4 Universal binary build to take advantage of the native support for Intel-based Macintosh computers.

Impact key for security issues listed on the Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories webpage:

  • Critical: Vulnerability can be used to run attacker code and install software, requiring no user interaction beyond normal browsing.
  • High: Vulnerability can be used to gather sensitive data from sites in other windows or inject data or code into those sites, requiring no more than normal browsing actions.
  • Moderate: Vulnerabilities that would otherwise be High or Critical except they only work in uncommon non-default configurations or require the user to perform complicated and/or unlikely steps.
  • Low: Minor security vulnerabilities such as Denial of Service attacks, minor data leaks, or spoofs. (Undetectable spoofs of SSL indicia would have “High” impact because those are generally used to steal sensitive data intended for other sites.)

Changes in 1.5.0.4: (31)
