Bug Day on Thursday 24 April 2008

The Thunderbird folks are organizing a bug day this Thursday, 24 April 2008. The schedule is located here. Generally, feel free to pop by outside of the sessions as well, some experienced folks should be around to help you.

The focus of this bug day is found here.

How?

Triaging is easy! You don’t have to be able to understand computer languages in order to triage most bugs.

You just have to try and reproduce the bug by following the steps written in the report. Add a comment stating whether the bug still applies in the latest supported version of Thunderbird 2 (2.0.0.12), or in the trunk nightlies (3.0a1pre) for the more adventurous.

Thunderbird 2.0.0.12 builds:

Windows builds Official Windows installer

Linux builds Official Linux (i686)

Mac builds Official Mac (Universal binary)

Please drop by #bugday and help us get our bug numbers down; we need your help! First timers and experienced triagers welcome.

I will be available throughout all three the last two timeslots to assist anyone who wants to contribute. (My nick is "nth10sd") Several experienced folks will be there to assist as well.

The results of the bug day will be posted to Mozilla Wiki.

Thunderbird 2.0.0.14 Released

Changelog for previous release (Thunderbird 2.0.0.12) | Changelogs for other Thunderbird releases

Released on 01 May 08, and this changelog was last updated on 04 May 08.

Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.14 has been released. Release notes are available. This post lists the improvements in Thunderbird 2.0.0.14 over 2.0.0.12. This list encompasses almost every single known fix that went into this release. Do check out the known issues as well.

The Gecko 1.8.1.x branch (Thunderbird 2.0.0.x series) will not include any groundbreaking features that Gecko 1.9 will bring, since it is based on Gecko 1.8. Additionally, in order to synchronize the version numbering with Firefox, 2.0.0.13 was dropped in favour of 2.0.0.14.

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 2.0.0.14: (9)

Security issues: (2)

  • Fixed: MFSA 2008-14 – JavaScript privilege escalation and arbitrary code execution (Moderate)
  • Fixed: MFSA 2008-15 – Crashes with evidence of memory corruption (rv:1.8.1.13) (Moderate)

Crash: (1)

  • Fixed: 419035 – [1.8 branch only] "Random" crash when I want to display a mail

Attachment-related: (1)

  • Fixed: 411572 – Unnamed attachments reveal full local paths when forwarded inline or edited as new

Build configuration: (1)

  • Fixed: 416183 – add afrikaans to shipped-locales

Functionality: (3)

  • Fixed: 357172 – mail invitation text garbled (VCALENDAR not recognized as UTF-8)
  • Fixed: 415135 – Hang/lock-up on long From lines
  • Fixed: 419116 – Sending mail through SMTP server that doesn’t require user:pass fails

RSS: (1)

  • Fixed: 375745 – Unsubscribing from feeds still shows in list until manager is closed
