Thread: Thunderbird Trunk Nightlies now Version "3.0a1"?

  1. Thunderbird Trunk Nightlies now Version "3.0a1"?

    Are the Thunderbird *trunk* nightlies now version "3.0a1"?

    I have Thunderbird version 1.6a1 (20060301). Running "Relp / Check for
    updates" says: "A new version of Thunderbird is available: Thunderbird
    3.0a1".

    Is Thunderbird trying to "beat" Firefox? ;-)

    PS. This might explain why the lightning extension(1) I downloaded today
    said it wasn't compatible with my Thunderbird version (1.6a1 - 20060301)
    and needed 3.0a1. :-\

    Yup.
    Thunderbird 3.0 will be built on Mozilla 1.9.
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o.../latest-trunk/

    Thunderbird 2.0 will be built on Mozilla 1.8.1.
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o...st-mozilla1.8/

    Thunderbird 1.5.0.2 will be built on Mozilla 1.8.0.2
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.o...-mozilla1.8.0/

    There's no race for a higher version number, if that's what you mean.
    :-) Firefox has the same roadmap, with regards to what versions will be
    built on what branches.
