Thunderbird 2.0 Alpha now available for testing.

Looks like work on the 2.0 version of the Mozilla Thunderbird email client is progressing well. Mozilla just announced that the Alpha version is available for testing:

Mozilla Corp. on Thursday gave users a first look at the next version of its Thunderbird e-mail client by releasing an alpha of v. 2.0.

Thunderbird 2.0 Alpha 1, which can be downloaded in Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X editions, is suitable for developers only, Mozilla said on its Web site, although there are no actual barriers that block others from trying the software.

“[It] is being made available for testing purposes only,” Mozilla stated on the site. “Current users of Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5.0.x should not use Thunderbird 2 Alpha 1.”

I’ve been playing around with the Firefox 2.0 beta and have been enjoying it immensely, particularly the built-in spell checking, so I’m looking forward to the new Thunderbird client.

  1. TBird is feeling a bit creaky to me these days. Don’t ask me why. I look forward to 2.0.  I hope they strengthen their (already pretty cool) IMAP support.
