Thunderbird 0.2

Thunderbird has to have the most deceiving version numbers of any software I’ve ever used. I avoided version 0.1 for ages because I incorrectly assumed that a 0.1 release shouldn’t be trusted with my email. I’ve just upgraded from 0.1 to the new 0.2 and a good product has got even better—it’s noticably faster and more responsive and they’ve knocked 1.5MB off the size of installer. I love the new direction the Mozilla organisation have been taking with their focus on separate applications; I wonder if we’ll be seeing a spin off of Composer any time soon.
