"Mozilla Messaging has published a proposed schedule for
Thunderbird 3.1, the next release of the popular e-mail client. The
organization is refining its development process and could
potentially shift towards shorter release cycles and a more
incremental approach to development.
"Mozilla Messaging, the Mozilla subsidiary behind the
Thunderbird project, has revealed a preliminary roadmap proposal
for the next major version of the open source e-mail client. The
developers could potentially adopt a more incremental development
model with shorter release cycles.
"According to a new proposed schedule that has been published in
the Mozilla wiki, Thunderbird 3.1 is tentatively planned for
release in April. The new version will include an updated Gecko
engine and some features that weren't quite ready for the 3.0
release. The roadmap states that large and disruptive changes will
be avoided during this development cycle.
