Thunderbird 6 Beta Released – New Logos Upcoming

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Although this sounds like a significant improvement over the previous version, the task of continually updating browsers and email clients is still getting to be a little bit overwhelming …

Mozilla has released the first beta version of the upcoming Thunderbird 6 email desktop client. As you may know, Mozilla has moved Firefox to a rapid release process some time ago. This basically meant an accelerated development process with new versions of the browser every 18 weeks. Soon thereafter, the developers decided to move Thunderbird to that very same release process. This is why Thunderbird 5 has been released less than a month ago.

… And just when you thought that all of your browsers were completely up-to-date, here comes another Mozilla release.

Mozilla has released two new betas today. Thunderbird 5 Beta 1 is the first beta version of the upcoming version 5 of the Thunderbird desktop email client. Thunderbird users who are currently running a Miramar released should get update notifications soon. It is furthermore possible to manually check for updates to download and install the latest version of Thunderbird without waiting for the automatic update notification. This is done via Help > Check for Updates in the email client.
