I was reviewing the notes from the latest Mozilla developers meeting this past Monday (2007/01/29) and noticed some exciting news in the Thunderbird section. Besides announcing Thunderbird 2 Beta 2 being released last Wednesday (2007/01/24), there are now over 100,000 folks using the Beta 2 since its release. Even more encouraging, they are “on track” for an early March release for Thunderbird 2.
If you are interesting in trying out(at your own risk) Thunderbird 2 Beta 2, you can get it via the OSU Open Source Labs FTP server (select your OS below):
