@miro Sorry about that! It occurs to me there may have been a SHORT gap between the newsletter going out and the blog post going live. We are a work in progress :D

@thunderbird any development of #thunderbird for an #iOS app?

@Oiselarius We're in the planning stages, but not actively developing until Thunderbird for Android is out the door. That being said, you can consider an iOS version confirmed!

After a stable release of K-9 Mail, our Android team usually spends a couple weeks fixing bugs. The bug hunt takes center stage in this month's #Android progress report, with cketti and Wolf ironing out a BUNCH of them.

We want to find bugs before our users do! So, since the release of 115 Supernova, we’ve been putting a much stronger focus on improving our automated testing.

Read all about it in this new blog from Staff Engineer Geoff Lankow:

We're often asked "When can I use Thunderbird in my browser?" It's a logical question! After all, Thunderbird was built on top of Firefox technologies, right?

Let's have a quick chat about it:

🕘 December 2009: Maybe you were upgrading your computer to the new Windows 7, or checking out Ubuntu 9.10. Perhaps you were pouring all your free time into Valve’s ridiculously fun survival shooter Left 4 Dead 2. And maybe, just maybe, you were eagerly anticipating installing Thunderbird 3.0…

Step back into the Thunderbird Time Machine as Jason looks at what made this such a landmark release!

@tylnesh Argh, you’re absolutely right. Appreciate the correction!

We hear you: it IS frustrating that Thunderbird doesn't have a proper conversation view! It's finally time to answer WHY, and explain what we're doing to solve it.

It all started about 20 years ago...

Oh snap! Good news, Linux users: we're adding the Thunderbird Snap, previously maintained by the awesome Ubuntu desktop team, to our officially supported Linux packages! 📦 🐧

Learn all about why we made the change, what it means and what to expect, and where to report issues in our blog post.

@Ray_Of_Sunlight Not a problem at all, since we also maintain the Flatpak.

When Thunderbird for Android is ready for release, what will the upgrade path from K-9 Mail look like? Will both apps co-exist? Where does Mozilla Sync fit in?

Alex answers some of your burning questions about our Android plans in this short clip from our recent Community Office Hours session.

@mdosch No, just the subtitles for now (in English and German). But your question prompted me to update the PeerTube and YouTube links with the transcript. Great idea :D

Please check again and you should see it.

@nick Thunderbird for Android and K-9 Mail will have identical feature sets.

@thunderbird@mastodon.online avatar

@nick I should add that using a Mozilla Account and thus using Sync is completely optional

@thunderbird@mastodon.online avatar

@flarion We're working on a blog post that will provide the tl;dr, and we'll also be adding transcripts to future videos. But basically, we're working on the smoothest transition possible between K-9 and Thunderbird for Android, using Sync or possibly a one-tap migration.

@thunderbird From the blog feed: "As usual, if you want to see things as they land you can always check the pushlog and try running daily, which would be immensely helpful for catching bugs early."

The link to daily is a 404.

@KoosPol Whoops, we forgot a backslash! Link is working now - thanks for the heads up!

What email client are people using on desktop these days? Is #Thunderbird still the go? My MS Office subscription gives me access to Outlook but it's terrible for personal use (arguably it's terrible for any use, but it's annoying enough that I don't want to use it even though I'm already paying for it).

I was going to make a joke here about going back to Lotus Notes, but it looks like IBM sold it back in 2019, so it wouldn't even feel nostalgic.

Boosts welcome.

@thunderbird@mastodon.online avatar

@timixretroplays We're definitely using Thunderbird (thunderfooding?), but we miiiight be just a bit biased! 😄

Awww, Lotus Notes. 😢

@thunderbird How would I debug not being fetched with 115.9.0 (64-bit) ? New tasks created in Thunderbird are pushed to the CalDAV server but such that are created on other devices are not pulled. The tasks sync fine with Tasks.org on my Android phone. I already tried to look at the Flatpak log, but nothing related shows up.

@amadeus Oh drat! We know you've already typed a lot, but would you mind submitting a ticket either to https://support.mozilla.org or to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org? This way we can get a wider set of eyes on it and hopefully figure out what's going on!

The typists behind this account do their best to help, but we can't beat the power of our community 💪 🤝

@amadeus Thanks so much for posting to SUMO, and we hope the future answer helps you AND others!

I haven't talked much about my day job, but now feels like the right time since I recently moved away from management back into a content + community-driven role at @thunderbird.

As successful as the Thunderbird project is, there's a lot of room for us to improve our community engagement, whether that's creating a more welcoming environment for new contributors OR just being a fun "third place" for our users.

What do YOU think is missing right now? What can we do better? 👂

@wzwijger1972 @killyourfm Some good news on that front: https://youtu.be/7jNV1J2pdPc

The first implementation of native Exchange support in Thunderbird happens in July.
