Mozilla Moves Thunderbird E-mailer Into Alpha

2005-06-03 21:53:00

The Mozilla Foundation Thursday posted the first preview of Thunderbird 1.1, the upcoming update to its stand-alone e-mail client that will feature anti-phishing tools and support for podcasts, the audio broadcasts-turned-MP3 files.

Like the Deer Park edition of Firefox released Tuesday, Thunderbird 1.1 Alpha 1 is intended for testers only. "If you are an end user using Thunderbird 1.0, please stay with 1.0," wrote Scott MacGregor, the lead Thunderbird developer on the blog notice of the client's availability.

But while Mozilla's aiming to get Firefox 1.1 out the door by July, Thunderbird is a lower priority. Originally, this alpha was to appear at the end of March, which would have meant a final release by late June. With Thunderbird behind Mozilla's roadmap by approximately two months, 1.1 won't appear until late August at best.

Among the new features Thunderbird's trying out are an anti-phishing warning system that examines URLs embedded in messages, support for deleting and stripping attachments from messages (akin to an enterprise's ability to block attachments at the gateway), and improved support for RSS feeds, including the ability to hand off podcast attachments to the proper helper application or audio player.

Alpha 1 versions for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X can be downloaded from Mozilla's site free of charge.
