Mozilla Thunderbird 0.8 released

In: Mozilla

14 Sep 2004

Mozilla Thunderbird 0.8 is out. Time for you to upgrade my favorite email client or to convert if you haven’t yet. Give it a quick whirl and if you meet any problems, I’ll be your (free) technical support. Just drop me a note.

All the new features I’ve written about one and a half months back are still there, except for Improved Quick Search.

I’ve been following the nightlies closely and I upgraded to TB 0.8 this morning. I use secured IMAP and the Enigmail 0.86.0 extension, I can’t believe how slow it is now ! Loading a message takes forever (even without Enigmail). It even crashes sometime.

Of course I deleted XUL.mfl and the /chrome dir in my profile, just waiting to see if someone else reports this problem (here or elsewhere) before I dump the entire profile too…

Quick Search was improved too, as far as I can tell. You can now also search in message bodies.

Great work, i love Thunderbird and it just keeps getting better. Although in this one I have to say the NNTP is broken. It does not persist any of the subscriptions. Always ask me to keep subscribing to a newsgroup.

I have been running the nightly builds of 0.8 for a while now and nothing wrong. Only in the latest one has something gone pear shaped.
