Mozilla Thunderbird 2 Released

Wednesday April 18th, 2007

Scott MacGregor of Team Thunderbird writes in with news of the release of Mozilla Thunderbird 2: "Thunderbird 2 is now available for download on Windows, Mac and Linux in over 35 languages. Thunderbird 2 offers easy ways to manage and organize your email with message tags, advanced folder views, message history navigation, find as you type, and improved new mail alert notifications. Thunderbird 2 also includes a refreshed user interface and support for Microsoft Vista.

"Thunderbird 1.5.0.x users will be offered Thunderbird 2 via software update at a later date. Those wishing to upgrade now are therefore advised to download and install Thunderbird 2 manually.

"The Thunderbird 2 features page has more details about the new features in Thunderbird 2. The Thunderbird 2 Release Notes have more specific information. The Rumbling Edge has a list of notable bug fixes in Thunderbird 2.

"We also want to extend a huge thanks to everyone in the MozillaZine community for their help and support with Thunderbird 2 over the past year. We wouldn't have been able to release Thunderbird without you. A special thanks to the awesome forum moderators who spend so much time answering questions and to the folks who help organize and participate in our weekly test threads here at MozillaZine."

Hi. Just installed TBird 2: Nice GUI, much better than before ... but the app is slooow when opening mails that I had to uninstall TBird2 immediately - I cannot wait about 20 - 30 secs for display of a single (html)-Mail. Happy that I can easily fallback to TBird 1.5 ... it is much faster and works well. And all my extensions still work - TBird disabled all of them. Waiting for a 2.1 Version that must bring an tremendous performance improvement. Mozilla please HELP ! btw: I use a Pentium4 at 3.2 Ghz with 1 GB Memory and Win XPPro
