Thunderbird Conversations
  • Bugfixes, released a3, then a4 and a5 because of last-minute issues that hadn't been spotted so far. Feedback seems positive on the mozilla-labs Google Group.
  • Wrote a chapter of the Thunderbird FLOSS about Thunderbird Conversations, translated it to French, once it's released and integrated in the public version of the FLOSS Manual, will point AMO, the wiki and everything to that page as the official reference for documentation.
  • Still the usual polish and minor improvements.

Account Summary
Ubuntu Unity Integration
  • Unity Launcher extension C++ backend chucked in favour of jsctypes
    • This means that machine architecture compatibility is no longer an issue. Nice!
  • I've started work on integrating our contacts with the Ubuntu One service.
    • Did a quick survey on prior efforts in this area.
    • This will be harder than it sounds, since RDF prevents us from easily adding new types of address books with Javascript
    • Work has begun to de-RDF the address book UI

Trunk (Miramar) Development

  • Alpha 3 released
  • Branching for mozilla-2.0
    • thread on tb-planning

(If you support Thunderbird or write documentation to help support Thunderbird, please subscribe to the tb-support-crew mailing list and briefly introduce yourself to the list)

  1. 614 new support topics (not sure why traffic is so high, last week 665) - Media:14-20March2011-Community_stats_for_Mozilla_Messaging.png
  2. Kitsune KB migration: [Project Plan], All English content and images moved over. Localizers were delayed a wee bit by missing permissions. Localizers have been notified via email and tb-support-crew of a wiki page with complete instructions on how to localize their data on SuMoMo Kitsune with pre-converted files. Localizers are busy with Firefox 4 docs localization so we have pushed back launch date to April 19
  3. 3.1 Support Issues
