Extension of the week

<a href="">bugmail</a> A nice extension that adds value if you receive plenty of bugspam. Say you have a Thread of emails and start reading it, with that extension you'll know the status of the bug at the beginning of the thread. Combined with the magic r keyboard shortcut you can be way more efficient at reading your daily bugmail. Bugzilla, Trac, Flyspray and Launchpad are the currently supported bug systems.

<a href="Thunderbird:Testing">QA</a> Updates

Lightning Updates

Unfortunately I can't make it to the meeting today. As discussed with the Thunderbird Drivers, Lightning needs to return to non-beta version numbers as fast as possible. I will be attempting to release Lightning 1.0 together with Thunderbird 7, so on September 27th.

To achieve this goal, I have further condensed the buglist to a very small number. Despite exams I'm going to try to fix these bugs in the next weeks, so we can broaden testing to make 1.0 as good as possible. Please take a look at <a _fcknotitle="true" href="Calendar Talk:1.0 Product Planning#Version_2:_Together_with_TB7">Calendar Talk:1.0 Product Planning#Version_2:_Together_with_TB7</a> and let me know if there are any more urgent issues that you think need to be taken care of in 1.0.
