What losers... Those of us (Such as myself - And I'm assuming M_Lyons10 as he appears agitated by the nonsense) who are trying TB 2 Beta's are annoyed by the worthless posts. If someone is testing a Beta of TB, and want to post something, it should be constructive (Whether positive or negative). I mean, why the H@!! would someone just post "??" or "!!", and why would someone spend the time drafting the responses you two made?? Are you 12? Can we please grow up here? I think M_Lyons10 was trying to convey that there is absolutely nothing anyone can gain by reading a post of "??" or "!!". If there is a problem with this Beta, or it's working great... Who knows... These posters should have spent the time composing something that would mean something to someone. Thank you for your posts though... I mean don't get me wrong, you wasted more space (Which I'm not a fan of), but at least your ridiculous posts made me laugh...

Now to TB Beta 2. This is working pretty well for me. I really like the refresh, and the new folder views. The new mail notification isn't working for me, but I'll play around with it a little before searching for a bug report on it. I can't wait for the next release? As this Beta appears pretty stable, I'm guessing the next will be an RC unless some bugs are found. The improvements to the extension system will offer options that I'm sure will create a lot of opportunity for extension authors. This is an exciting release.
