Tracking of Sunbird changes

I am starting a new category for the tracking of Sunbird’s development. Despite being a project in its infancy, I have decided to cover this application as well, because of its close integration with Thunderbird through Lightning.

The coverage will be as follows: As changes continue to be made, I will start off with tracking Sunbird through the Sunbird category and, for the moment, 0-5 signifying all the changes up to release 0.5 (hopefully from 0.3). XULRunner, the common foundation from which Firefox, Thunderbird and Sunbird come from, will still be covered through the Thunderbird posts as per normal.

For the Sunbird posts, bugs fixed under mozilla/calendar will be tracked here, splitting the Sunbird-only and the Lightning-only bugs from the main body as well. Release changelogs similar to the ones currently made for Thunderbird will be made for Sunbird as well, to be linked to from official Sunbird release notes.

Hopefully this arrangement will encourage more development on a most promising project still in its infancy. Do note that as the tacking continues over the weeks, there might be minor changes to the way they are tracked as well.

Thunderbird 1.5.0.9 Released

Changelog for previous release (Thunderbird 1.5.0.8) | Changelogs for other Thunderbird releases

Make a donation to the upkeep of The Rumbling Edge.

Released on 19 Dec 06, and this changelog was last updated on 18 Jan 07.

Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5.0.9 has been released. Release notes are available. This post lists the improvements in Thunderbird 1.5.0.9 over 1.5.0.8. 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.

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 1.5.0.9: (14)

Security issues: (7)

Build configuration: (2)

  • Fixed: 338128 – system-headers misses a few files
  • Fixed: 358934 – additional cairo headers need to be in config/system-headersl

Functionality: (2)

  • Fixed: 360409 – mails with messed up references seem to disappear
  • Fixed: 361730 – Seamonkey _deletes_ mail file if the mail file’s size is greater than 2GiB and the .msf file has zero length

Spelling checker: (1)

  • Fixed: 349319 – If you have both the en-GB and the en-GB-oed dictionaries installed you can’t distinguish them when trying to select the correct dictionary

Mac-specific: (1)

  • Fixed: 359687 – [XULRunner] XULRunner pkg packages should correctly follow filename specs
