Mozilla today released a new version of Mozilla Thunderbird, its free and open source email application for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Available in over 43 languages and based on the Mozilla Gecko 5 engine, the new
Thunderbird promises to deliver a faster and safer email experience.
The latest version of Thunderbird includes more than 390 improvements and
performance enhancements that make Thunderbird more responsive, faster to start
up and easier to use. Thunderbird delivers several improvements to some
features such as RSS feeds, Attachment management, and Tabs which can now be
reordered and dragged into a new window.
Thunderbird gives users control over the look and functionality of Thunderbird
with a gallery of hundreds of add-ons. The new Add-ons manager allows users to
search the gallery in Thunderbird and lets users install, remove, and manage the
Add-ons. This release also adds support for technologies that make it easier
for developers to build some of these amazing Add-ons, such as the Lightning
Calendar, Conversation View, and Open Search.
