[News] Preview of Linux 2.6.28, Thunderbird 3 for GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Kernel Log: What's coming in 2.6.28 - Part 6: Changes to the audio drivers

,----[ Quote ]
| As the development of Linux kernel 2.6.28 is approaching completion, this 
| kernel log will mention a few changes that haven't made it into the "What's 
| coming in 2.6.28" series so far. This includes the changes to the audio 
| drivers – these drivers were already raised to the status of the Alsa 
| development branch early on in the current development cycle, but were then 
| updated several times. While the audio drivers of Linux 2.6.28 will roughly 
| correspond to the Alsa driver version 1.0.18, they already include several 
| minor improvements and corrections not yet contained in the latest version of
| the official Alsa driver archive.        


Thunderbird 3 Beta

,----[ Quote ]
| Thunderbird offers an incredible opportunity for a client that feels native, 
| effective and matches a variety of workflow approaches, making the most of 
| Operating System integration and a consistent messaging platform. Keep us all 
| updated Mozilla folks.   



A leap forward - Thunderbird 3 beta

,----[ Quote ]
| From the outside it’s just another Thunderbird as we know it - with some user
| interface changes and tweaks. But under the hood, the groundwork was laid for
| many future improvements and additions. The bird will have the Lightning
| calendar offered as a default installation option in its final version - and
| with it introduce you to tabs. Yes, tabs as we know it from Firefox - now in
| the upcoming new Mozilla product for email, messaging, calendaring and
| whatnot.

Thunderbird 3 beta 1 - a platform for innovation shapes up

,----[ Quote ]
| In some ways, this is a typical beta — we’ve changed a lot of code since
| Thunderbird 2, and we need a lot of people to tell us if we’ve made any
| boo-boos when fixing bugs. It’s also a good beta in that we’ve moved the
| product forward, in part thanks to new capabilities in the underlying Mozilla
| platform, which gives us faster performance all around, an add-on manager
| which will be even more useful for Thunderbird users than for Firefox users.
| We also have important new mail-specific capabilities, including a
| new “autosync” system that gets Thunderbird to download IMAP message bodies
| early, so they’re already there when you need them, and a much faster
| implementation for deleting and moving IMAP messages, which I can’t imagine
| living without at this point. The one-click add-to-addressbook is also an
| elegant and shameless ripoff of the Firefox bookmarking model, which our
| alpha users love.


QuickQuote for Thunderbird: The best extension you’ve never heard of

,----[ Quote ]
| For me, that is where QuickQuote comes in. This simple extension for
| Thunderbird allows to you define a portion of text in an e-mail and then
| decide how to act that text. And to make this even easier, all you have to do
| is highlight the text and then right-mouse click the highlighted text. When
| you right-click the highlighted text, you will notice a few new entries to
| the menu:
|     * Quote In New Message
|     * Quote In Reply
|     * Quote In Reply To All
|     * Quote In Compose message


10 Great Thunderbird Addons You Must-have

,----[ Quote ]
| More than a year back, Aibek has written a great list of 35 must-have
| thunderbird addons. Since then, a lot of great addons have been created and
| some of the older addons have also evolved to become a better one. As such,
| it is time for us to re-visit the list of Thunderbird addons and update our
| readers with the latest list of must-have Thunderbird addons. (If you never
| heard of Tunderbird before, it’s an email client from Mozilla, just like
| Microsoft’s Outlook but a lot more customizable.)


Spreadthunderbird is Go

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the reasons that Firefox has been successful is the extraordinary way
| that users have been mobilised as part of a vast, global marketing group
| without precedent.
| Tens of thousands – perhaps even hundreds of thousands – of people have added
| their pebble to the cairn of promotion to produce the market shares we see
| today for Firefox (particularly in Europe).
| The main vehicle for creating and sustaining this distributed marketing team
| is Spreadfirefox, which effectively applied the open source software
| development methodology to the sphere of promotion. That is, it has made
| ordinary Firefox users feel engaged in the propagation of the software, just
| as they can become engaged in its development through bug reports.


Spread Thunderbird is live!

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla Messaging today announced the beta launch of SpreadThunderbird.com.
| Spread Thunderbird is the volunteer-run Mozilla Thunderbird advocacy site
| where community marketing activities are organized to raise awareness and to
| promote the adoption of Thunderbird.  The Spread Thunderbird site is powered
| by the open source Drupal web site software.

Mozilla Messaging releases new Thunderbird 3 alpha

,----[ Quote ]
| Mozilla Messaging has launched the third alpha release of Thunderbird 3.0, a
| major update of the open source e-mail client. The current prerelease series,
| which is codenamed Shredder, is highly experimental and not intended for
| production use. The new alpha introduces tons of minor improvements and a
| handful of significant new features, including some of the first usability
| enhancements that are part of a major user interface overhaul.


Test Driving the new Thunderbird3 alpha2 (Shredder) on Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Feeling a little adventurous today? Want to get your hands dirty on something
| cool and really alpha. Here is something for you all.
| The nice folks at mozilla spunoff Thunderbird into a separate project called
| Mozilla Messaging with a prime objective of developing Thunderbird3
| (codenamed Shredder), the next generation open-source email/messaging client.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
