Bear with me while you sleep at Whistler…

Just after 5.30am on Tuesday 29 July, outside Westin Resort & Spa while most were sleeping, feeling safe and sound…

“… garbage bear, pretty tame. May break car windows if it’s bad …”

“… runs off at the sound of key jingles or bear bells …”

“… runs off at camera flashes, though some will charge at you …”

“… average of three bears are shot dead every year for entering people’s kitchens …”

“… it alone has enough power to rip off doors …”

Note: All quotes are courtesy of a local I spoke to, after seeing him throw a box to chase the bear away from some beer bottles.

Thunderbird 0.1 released! (>5 years ago…)

(Blame me for roaming about my old Mozilla archives prior to the summit, but here’s what I found!)

Just over 5 years ago, Thunderbird 0.1 candidate milestones came out. It was also about the time I started to volunteer for the Thunderbird project, just after entering high school. I created installers and posted them in the mozillaZine forums. Back then, there were only Windows binaries but no installers, and there weren’t any builds for other platforms as well. These installers were smaller by a few MBs (5+ for the installer vs 7+ for the .zip) because they made use of cutting-edge (at that time) 7z compression. Their release notes can still be found here.

Here they are, only Windows binaries in my installers. They should work in Windows XP, though one can always extract the files out of the installer and run them separately. Don’t run / install them unless you’re adventurous, and BACKUP your profile first, I haven’t used them myself after lying around for so long somewhere in a data backup disc.. Again, Thunderbird 3 may come out at the end of this year / start of next year so please do not report any bugs found in the antique builds below, especially if they threaten to eat your dog’s food or volunteer to hang out your clothes to sun.

This is just to see how things have progressed since >5 years ago:

Thunderbird 0.1 candidate 20030625

Thunderbird 0.1 release – released 2003-07-28 – Official release notes

Thunderbird 0.2 candidate 20030826

Thunderbird 0.2 release – released 2003-09-03 – Official release notes

Thunderbird 0.3 candidate 20030912

.iss Inno Setup file used to generate the installers

Bonus: Mozilla and Mozilla 1.5b

I’m sure some of us reading this post can trace their history back to the milestone releases of the suite, but I only recall starting to use Mozilla 0.9.1 when in middle school and couldn’t find that binary in my house anymore. (Excluding Netscape, I was introduced to Netscape 4.x when I was just a kid!)

Hope they work out fine after all these years! (but don’t panic if they don’t, use a newer version. 😛 )

Edit: Thunderbird 0.1 candidate 20030625 still can be started up to work with Gmail IMAP, running on XP SP3 after using the installer!

Thunderbird Mercurial comm-central builds now available.

Fresh off the oven, Thunderbird Mercurial comm-central builds are now available, as we continue our move off CVS. They can be downloaded from the comm-central hourly builds links, if you’re interested in hourlies (Not recommended unless you know what you are doing!). Be sure to click the latest changeset to obtain the latest code.

I tested the Mac build with changeset ID 1216968657, and it seems to startup and download my mails fine. A far cry from the flames just even a couple of hours ago.

Subsequent nightlies will be built off comm-central as well. Many thanks to the great work put into this by KaiRo, Standard8, gozer among others!

Thunderbird Trunk

Comments Off on 2008-07-22 Thunderbird Trunk builds



I will be on vacation for the next fortnight till the Summit, with my MacBook Pro in the service centre due to it being unable to charge even after a power cable replacement. 🙁 So I’ll be off Bugzilla, IRC, newsgroups, and only extremely intermittent via email.

The Rumbling Edge will return after that, including catching up on changelogs for upcoming releases Thunderbird and Shredder Alpha 2, due out this month.

Edit on 24 July: I’m back, MBP is fine now, pre-Summit! Besides catching up on (bi)weekly changelists and release changelogs, Thunderbird 2.0 branch posts will be discontinued since they have very little development occurring there. Changelogs will be posted only when releases are actually released.
