Thunderbird moving on to community innovation

Mozilla Thunderbird is moving on to stability updates by Mozilla, and innovation by the community.

As Mitchell Baker writes on her blog,

“Much of Mozilla’s leadership — including that of the Thunderbird team — has come to the conclusion that on-going stability is the most important thing, and that continued innovation in Thunderbird is not a priority for Mozilla’s product efforts (…) As a result, the Thunderbird team has developed a plan that provides both stability for Thunderbird’s current state and allows the Thunderbird community to innovate if it chooses.”

The Rumbling Edge will likely continue to function as per normal for the forseeable future, and will post updates every few weeks/month(s) in lieu of the probable decrease in numbers of fixed bugs.
