2007-05-18 Sunbird 0.5 builds

No checkins during this period.

From the Calendar weblog:

“The test day on Tuesday was absolutely incredible. The response was awesome.

Several good bugs were found, but none of them were serious enough to block the release. We are still testing, of course, but so far everything looks good.

We are getting down to the wire, so keep an eye on this blog, the newsgroup, and Mozilla Zine for the announcement about the next test day. I’m going to try to have it on Tuesday, but it entirely depends on when the release is built.”

Thunderbird 3 (Trunk) news

NOTE: This post is no longer updated. Please head to this post for updated Thunderbird 3 information. Thank you!

It has been some time since The Rumbling Edge posted news on Thunderbird 3. Here is some news on how the development of Thunderbird 3 will involve:

There is a “great mailnews code cleanup of 2007” soon to take place to prepare for Thunderbird’s transition to “frozen linkage/libxul/XULRunner”, mainly because there has been “inefficient code patterns in our C++ code in mailnews”.

A more precise description:

“In order to move to frozen linkages, we can no longer use nsXPIDLStrings. We need to convert these to nsString equivalents. While doing this audit, we’re also going to try to convert many of the string parameters in the mailnews interfaces to use AString/ACString.”

Scott MacGregor adds that, “I could use extra help cleaning up strings, it’s fairly straight forward work that can be divided up, just a lot of it!” See Bug 379070.

The entire (proposed) architectural changes can be found @ mozilla wiki. Eventually, Thunderbird should turn into a XULRunner application (Bug 306324).

On another note, Thunderbird 3 may also raise minimum system requirements on Linux; see this post by Mike Connor. Even though he mentions Firefox 3, Thunderbird 3 will probably be affected as well as they are both based on Gecko 1.9.

Common:

  • Fixed: 379462 – Changing timezone of event in various timezones isn’t possible

Lightning-specific:

  • Fixed: 379876 – Shifted button labels on iMIP bar

Mac-specific:

  • Fixed: 372287 – Sunbird crashes on open in Mac OS 10.3, works in Mac OS 10.4

From the Calendar weblog:

“We will release RC1 for Linux and Windows once bug 377641 has been fixed. That will give most of you the chance to pound on those builds and identify potential last-minute blockers, while we are trying to fix the Mac OS X 10.3 bug.”

“If no other blockers arise from RC1, we will release 0.5 once bug 377641 gets fixed. If new blockers rise, we will likely release a 2nd release candidate (RC2).”

Note: bug 377641 has been fixed. Bug 372287 has also been fixed.
