Thunderbird 3.0b2 testing

February 20th, 2009

I’ve released a Thunderbird 3.0b2 test package in mozilla:beta today. This is the initial package for openSUSE and may (actually does) have some issues but it still should be usable basically. Feel free to report packaging issues to Novell’s bugzilla. (Please ignore the outdated extension warning at startup.)

For deeper testing the application I recommend in general to join the upstream QA effort and especially today’s Test Day. The Thunderbird community is aware of these openSUSE packages so if you like you can do the testing using these while you always should mention their origin in upstream reports (since there might be also packaging issues).

Update:
There are some things I missed to mention earlier:

  • MozillaThunderbird3 can be installed in parallel to MozillaThunderbird to make it easier testing the package.
  • Thunderbird 3 saves its profile to .thunderbird3 instead of .thunderbird (which is different from upstream) to avoid breakage of the TB2 profile.

    Thanks alot for packaging. I have been running nightly builds on OS X, but did not yet want to trash my openSUSE work machine with ~20.000 mails.

    I will try your packages after creating a backup next week.

    Does it finally implement reply-to-list or we have to wait till version 4 ?

    Not yet! But it really seems like the final Thunderbird 3 version will have it!

    TB3 (since beta1) supports Mail-Followup-To header field which will make using mailing lists much easier as soon as the majority of MUAs also support it.
