Any interest in Thunderbird 3.0a?

Unread postby diegel » Tue May 06, 2014 2:55 am

With the mozilla 1.9.0 code I build a thunderbird 3.0a2pre that works for me and is an improvement compared with the thunderbird 2 we have in current. If you want to see a nekoware package of this thunderbird please let me know.

It would be much appreciated. And thank you for all the work you've done to keep nekoware viable.

Not for me but it sounds like a great idea. I've been trying to change over to Ishmail for the past five years ... one of these days :P
from the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen ...

i never understood the firefox/thunderbird combination given that seamonkey has both. because then at least you gotta load the whole mozilla basic stuff only once. imho it makes much more sense using a lightweight email program alongside firefox.

despite that thunderbird became a major player so a more recent version for nekoware would of course be welcome :-)

The main idea was of course to have independent programs just in case something went wrong and it crashes. With libxul as a shared library that holds the main functionality of mozilla the programs using libxul should be quite small. I don't use libxul with firefox3 and thunderbird currently, but if I can fix mozilla 1.9.1 i have to.

I need some time for the thunderbird package, I think I can finish it next week.

I just uploaded neko_thunderbird-3.0a2pre.tardist to incoming. If you don't want to wait until it shows up in beta, you can find it in ftp://nekoware.de/diegel

libxul wasn't mandatory until Firefox 5. In fact, the PowerPC OS X versions of 1.9.1 and 1.9.2 couldn't be libxul builds due to a critical bug in the 10.4 PowerPC linker which we had to rectify for 5.0.

Beta test: Thunderbird 3.0a

Unread postby diegel » Wed Jan 07, 2015 11:49 am

It's half a year since I put thunderbird 3.0a in beta. What do you think is it worth to move it to current? I like to see it next to thunderbird2 in current, so you can choose if you want a gtk1 or gtk2 thunderbird.
