Attention, Thunderbird 12.0.1 Update Incoming

Wow, that was quick. It’s hardly been a week since the last update, and here’s another one already …

With Thunderbird 12.0 having been released less than a week ago, it may come as a surprise to may that Mozilla Messaging is already preparing a follow up release to resolve several issues that became known after the release of Thunderbird 12.0 was already on its way out to the users.

Thunderbird 12.0.1, which is not yet available on the Mozilla release ftp server, will be released shortly to all users of version 12 of the desktop email client.  The update addresses several issues that at least part of the client’s user base experienced after the upgrade to Thunderbird 12.



Here is a list of issues that will be addressed in Thunderbird 12.0.1

  • Pop3 Filters that move messages to IMAP folders do not work correctly most of the time. According to David Bienvenu, this is a “regression from the pluggable store work” implemented into Thunderbird 12. [bug 748090]

Pop3 filters that move/copy incoming messages to imap folders will not work, for the most part, except for the last message downloaded in get new mail operation. For this reason, it is probably best to disable such filters until this bug is fixed. Filters that are run manually should work.

  • Message body not loaded when using fetch headers only if message is in a sub-folder. Messages in sub folders that are retrieved this way to do not load by clicking on the here button. All a user sees is a blank page, even the header with buttons is not displayed. [bug 748865]
  • Received messages contain parts of other messages with movemail accounts. [bug 748726]
  • New mail notification issues after upgrading to TB 12.  Users basically may experience notifications for emails that they have already retrieved. [bug 748997]
  • Crash fix in nMsgDatabase [bug 748432]

It is likely that Mozilla will release the update in the coming days, likely tomorrow. It will be announced directly in the email client if automatic updates are enabled, or on the official website where it will be available for download as well.
