2011-06-08 Thunderbird comm-central builds

Previous TB release – 3.1.10 | Current TB pre-release – 5 Beta | Previous releases

The new release plan for future versions of Thunderbird / Miramar has been written up by Mark Banner on the newsgroups.

Thunderbird-specific: (11)

  • Fixed: 617906 – Turn on IPC/OOPP in Thunderbird builds
  • Fixed: 656045 – Attachment bar actions should be disabled if only a text/x-moz-deleted attachment is present
  • Fixed: 657856 – Improve interface for attachment objects in the message reader
  • Fixed: 658197 – “No messages match your search” message displaying badly when not en-US
  • Fixed: 659730 – Option window–>Network & Disk Space has disk space textbox for cache too little
  • Fixed: 659925 – msgHeaderSink properties are never reset after streaming
  • Fixed: 661142 – nsIAbCard.idl needs noscripts stripped so that nsIAbCard can be implemented in JS.
  • Fixed: 661315 – Attachment names are missing in File > Attachments
  • Fixed: 661319 – JSBool assertion failure causes crash when connecting to GMail IMAP
  • Fixed: 661528 – New mail popup on top left and doesn’t close
  • Fixed: 662087 – Adding attachments via the command-line doesn’t record their size

MailNews Core: (6)

  • Fixed: 653246 – Disable -dead_strip on OS X if LTO is enabled also on comm-central (port Bug 638149)
  • Fixed: 659205 – tier_platform_dirs doesn’t include APP_LIBXUL_DIRS (mailnews/ etc) — mailnews, xpfe autocomplete etc aren’t getting built
  • Fixed: 659940 – Remove MOZ_IPC checks from comm-central since IPC is always built now
  • Fixed: 660473 – Replace PR_Atomic* functions with macros in mailnews
  • Fixed: 661993 – Forwarding emails as attachments doesn’t record the message’s size
  • Fixed: 662188 – Lots of warnings linking to XPCOM symbols

With the rapid release model, outstanding bugs will no longer make sense to be listed. Fixes for bugs will be landed on comm-central, propagating to other stable branches as time goes by. In short, a release is unlikely to be held up by outstanding bugs in the future.
