According to the roadmap, 1.4 is likely to be the last milestone of the traditional Mozilla suite and the 1.4 branch will replace the 1.0 branch as the stable development path. mozilla.org is also proposing changes to the module ownership model including a move towards stronger leadership and the removal of mandatory super-review in some cases.

Calendar is a major project for the Mozilla suite. In my office environment, the lack of the functionnality was the major drawback of using Mozilla for mail instead of Outlook. This is the most missing functionnal element for me.

The current implementation does not fully solve my problem because of performance/stability problems, but over all insufficient integration with mail.

So I'm really worried if it will be possible to have the kind of full integration with both mail and browser that makes a calendar really useful after the split.
