Mozilla's Thunderbird 2.0.0.17 Has Been Released

September 26, 2008 by Sander Nyman

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Sander Nyman

Michael Kaply has released Mozilla's Thunderbird 2.0.0.17 (Official) for OS/2. Thunderbird is Mozilla's state of the art, full-featured e-mail, RSS and newsgroup client. It is OPEN SOURCE, and free. This release contains
fixes for stability and security.

You can download it here:

http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/releases/2.0.0.17/contrib/thunderbird-2.0.0.17.en-US.os2.zip

NOTE: In the unlikely event that you don't already have it, this release requires the C runtime DLLs (libc-0.5.1) from Innotek. Version 0.5.1 includes an installer. Available here:

http://download.innotek.de/gccos2/runtime/libc-0.5.1.exe

NOTE: To have both Firefox, & Thunderbird in use at the same time (or ANY other Mozilla app) they *MUST* be at the SAME version level, or a mismatched DLL will still be in memory when you attempt to start a second Mozilla based program. The easiest way to get around this limitation, and
use DIFFERENT version levels of Firefox, Thunderbird, Kompozer, etc., is with Rich Walsh's Run! utility. It is tiny, and VERY easy to set up. To make life even easier, I recommend that you download & use the Internet Application Integration utility from Chuck McKinnis, which actually
contains the Run! utility, and sets it up for you, along with coordinating your web browser with your email client for "mailto" links, etc. You can find it here:

http://7cities.net/~mckinnis/code/iai1090.exe

Or, if you'd rather do it yourself, here is the Run! utility:

Thunderbird extensions (add-ons) that add additional functionality are
available here:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/browse/type:1

Thunderbird themes (skins) are available here:

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/browse/type:2

A utility to migrate mail from PMMail to Thunderbird is available here:
