Lightning 0.5 has been released for OS/2.
Lightning is Mozilla's nicely integrated calendar application "Add-on" (extension) for Thunderbird. It is based off of the same backend code as Mozilla Sunbird, yet as an extension, weighs in at only 1.1 MB.
The following is listed as new in this release:
# Much more polished user interface in the calendar views
# Event invitations can be sent and received via iMIP/iTIP
# Working hours are back
# Automatic migration of data in Sunbird 0.2, iCal.app, and Evolution
# Much improved printing functionality
# Better integration into Thunderbird (Printing, Undo/redo, Copy/paste)
# Support for Google Calendar (via Google Calendar Provider extension)
# Vastly improved reliability
# Many performance improvements
# Many usability improvements

For the PmW-tb 18.104.22.168 (unofficial) OS/2 release, the link is:
