"With the release of the first beta, seasoned developers will be
happy to find almost four variations of Thunderbird, available for
testing and use. The final and stable versions will offer typical
users of Thunderbird a satisfying user experience. While, the
pre-release flavors are what will interest the experienced users
and developers to test-note-fix-bugs.
"The First Beta release of Thunderbird is the closet to the
final release of Thunderbird 7, in September, but looks like a lot
of work is required yet.
"Significant new features include the much improved user
interface. This has made it faster and makes it a more stable build
with greater support standards.
"Extensive fixes for several Gecko platforms are included. The
Beta release includes changes that allow printing summary of chosen
messages and an update to the attachment-handling features."
