More info on upcoming Thunderbird 0.3.1 release. I will update the Sunbird changelog as soon as possible.

Quote from ssitter: Currently the following nightly builds are available from http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/calendar:

  • sunbird/nightly/latest-mozilla1.8/: normal 0.4a1 nightly builds
  • sunbird/nightly/latest-trunk/: 0.3.1 maintenance builds
  • lightning/nightly/latest-mozilla1.8/: 0.3.1 maintenance builds
  • lightning/nightly/latest-trunk/: normal 0.6a1 nightly builds

“If you used a nightly build of 0.4a1 or 0.6a1 until now some calendar related files in your profile (e.g. the internal database file storage.sdb) have been upgraded to a newer version. This means your current profile will not work correctly with the 0.3.1 builds. This might result in calendars not being displayed, it’s not possible to create new calendars and events and switching views might not be possible. In that case you can install a previous nightly build of 0.4a1 or 0.6a1 to fix the issue.”
