User Visible Changes to Thunderbird 12

Roland is compiling this page in order to compile a list of what has to be documented for Thunderbird 12

Changes

(numbered for convenience only, not in order)

  1. GLODA search results should contain matched message fragment i.e. Do a Global search for X and the search results will now show X! - [bug 518597]
  2. maildir implemented in back end; this shouldn't result in any User changes since there's no front end UI for maildir yet but it could result in regressions - [bug 402392]
  3. bug 596885 - [UI] Move focus to newly created filter; select previous available filter after deletion
  4. account provisioner/get an account: tracker bug 686347 - in the unlikely event you need to turn it off use mail.provider.enabled [bug 700535] - Account provisioner disabled in TB 12, hope to be able to ship with multiple providers in TB 13 (bug 718792)
  5. bug 389650 - "Unable to save your message as a draft" and "Assembling mail information" when replying to forwarded attached .eml message

Thunderbird 11 and previous release regressions fixed in TB 12

  1. Folder panel has no content. JSON.parse: unexpected end of data Source File: chrome://messenger/content/folderPane.js - [bug 707329], [GS] - WORKAROUND: quit Thunderbird, delete folderTree.json, restart Thunderbird - FIXED for TB10 11Jan2012, [followup bug 717225 fixed in TB12 "Use safe file output stream for folderTree.json, directoryTree.json, session.json" in TB profile to prevent corruption]
  2. bug 721369 - Dialog "Add Security Exception" does not show when autoconfiguring TB10 - this regression may have been around since TB 3.1

Sources

(in no order, numbered for convenience only)

  1. Thunderbird 11 Support Issues
  2. the above are great for Thunderbird changes, but open question: how do we track gecko changes that surface themselves to the user in Thunderbird?
