Lightning-in-Thunderbird status update

,----[ Quote ]
| For some time, we (the Thunderbird release-drivers) have been exploring how 
| to best integrate calendar functionality into Thunderbird.  Time for an  
| update. 


my presentation at SCALE 2009

| I’ve put up slides from my talk at SCALE 2009.  Lots of people were 
| interested in the slides.  There’s the .pdf I’ve linked to above and the 
| original .odp format.  It covers most of the interesting new technical 
| features that we’re going to include in Firefox 3.1.   


25 Most Awesome Firefox Wallpapers

| As I’ve said before, Firefox web browser has become so popular that it has a 
| lot of passionate users from around world. These people will do everything to 
| help spread Firefox. --Like some of them have created great desktop 
| wallpapers that even non-Firefox users will surely be attracted to.    


Opera, all prettied up with nowhere to go

| Some strong OSS activists might attribute it to the fact that both Firefox 
| and Chrome are open source or at least have underlying open source projects. 
| And while i believe that to be a part of it, there is a lot more there. Both 
| Chrome and Firefox are fast, but the average end user doesn't notice the 
| difference. I feel that Chrome has gained market share through aggressive 
| marketing and a technical user base jumping from Firefox to Chrome ( due to 
| speed and the fact that tabs run in separate process threads ). And, in my 
| opinion, Firefox is still gaining market share due to every security 
| vulnerability found in IE. Yes, my implication is that Firefox is become the 
| Corporate desktop browser of choice. It's a dream to manage on the network ( 
| due to the built in updater ) and it is more secure than IE, so IT managers 
| are more likely to recommend it. This is my general feeling on the browser 
| market at the moment, so where does Opera factor in, and how can they take 
| their rightful place?             



The future of Lightning... after the Thunderbird announcement

,----[ Quote ]
| We'd like to state publicly that we will continue to work on our two products 
| Lightning and Sunbird in the foreseeable future and that we still envision 
| great things for Lightning and Thunderbird. We are currently hard at work for 
| our next release 0.7 (coming this fall) and are starting the planning work 
| for the following releases 0.9 and 1.0.    

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
