Thunderbird 3 is now available for download

Mark Banner-3
Mozilla Messaging is happy to announce that Thunderbird 3 is now
available for download:

http://www.getthunderbird.com/

Thunderbird 3 has been under development for the past two years, and
contains many new features we’re excited about and we think users will
enjoy.

Some of the new features:

     * Tabbed Email.
     * The new search experience is much faster, and new search tools
will help you narrow down your search.
     * A new Message Archive folder system will help you organize your
email.
     * Lots of user experience improvements: main toolbar has been
simplified, new search widget, new Mail Account Wizard, Smart Folders,
Activity Manager, one-click Address Book, Attachment Reminder.
     * Thunderbird 3 is available in 49 languages – get your local version:

http://www.mozillamessaging.com/en-US/thunderbird/all.html

As always Thunderbird 3 is available as a free download:

We encourage developers to read the Thunderbird 3 for Developers article
on the Mozilla Developer Center:

Hi, Mark - It's certainly a bit disconcerting that, apparently using
TB3, your announcement does not display properly in several places on my
machine using 2.0.0.23 set for plain text. Your bad or a TB3 bad?

It looks fine here, you haven't said what is wrong with it, which
doesn't help. Your text is also confusing as you're implying it display
badly on both TB 3 and 2.0.0.23.

Problem is at your end. It looks like a character encoding problem. His
message was sent with charset=UTF-8. Yours was with
charset=windows-1252. You probably have Thunderbird set to use
charset=windows-1252 for reading all incoming messages. Change it in you
preference settings to read incoming messages with the charset they were
sent in.

Thanks, Larry - very interesting. I've been set for Western (ISO 8859-1)
"forever", and never noticed this before. If I set View to UTF-8, Mark's
message looks OK. (Autodetect does NOT help.) I'm not about to change
encoding settings depending on who's sending.

BTW, I agree I sent in 1252, although I'm NOT set to do that. It appears
that replying to UTF-8 causes this.

I'm still not sure what's going on, but based on this and a number of
negative comments here (yes, I know negatives outweigh positives in
newsgroups), I think I'll stay put with 2.0.0.23 for the time being.

What happened to the FTP site for downloading Thunderbird -- and the
other Mozilla-related products?

David E. Ross
<http://www.rossde.com/>

Go to Mozdev at <http://www.mozdev.org/> for quick access to
extensions for Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and other
Mozilla-related applications.  You can access Mozdev much
more quickly than you can Mozilla Add-Ons.

Nothing. It's where it always was. What did you try?

I guess the problem is that you've set the option where the default
character set you've set OVERRIDES whatever is in the header of a
message. Make sure to uncheck that checkbox, you'll find it in the
properties dialog for this newsgroup and/or in global preferences dialog.

Hope this helps,
RQ

Hi David, hi Mark, hi TB3 Team

Congratulations. TB3 is a great product and especially a great platform.

I know that a lot of work has gone into the backend, from which only
some parts are now visible to the user.
However, this prepares the ground for many new upcoming features and
updates, I've been waiting for.

Best wishes to the whole TB3 Team / Crew for the great work and all the
best for the next building stones. (Which are now coming much faster
with the new release schedule.) ;-)

Greetings from Switzerland,
Rolf

Will this eventually be available as an automatic upgrade from TB2?  I
have no desire to go through all the headaches of upgrading I've read about.

The UI for the global pref to override was removed for tb3, as it's a sure way
to shoot yourself in the foot - the pref is mailnews.force_charset_override.

I know that, Magnus.

It was removed from the global settings, but it remains in each
newsgoup/folder settings dialog. That's what I referred to. Though
surely, the global option is a big suspect too.

If you're spreading links around please use releases.mozilla.org which
takes advantage of our mirror network. ftp.mozilla.org is a single
machine and our entire community relies on it as the sole source of
nightly test builds. It will quickly get swamped if people are
downloading releases from it.
