Last minute testing needed for upcoming Sunbird 0.3alpha1 release

OK guys, we’re nearly there. I know it has been a long time since our last official release (Sunbird 0.2) but the developers think that what we have right now could become Sunbird 0.3alpha1.

Please be aware that this release is an alpha release. This means that you shouldn’t expect the same quality as from a final release (like Sunbird 0.2). Sunbird 0.3alpha1 should be better in a few spots than Sunbird 0.2 but in some other spots it is probably only 90% as good as Sunbird 0.2.

But before we release, we could use some help in testing the latest nightly builds for any showstopper bugs. Showstopper bugs for this release would be all serious crashes or dataloss issues.

So please hop over to the mozilla FTP server, get a build and test it until your fingers bleed :-)

If you find something that may qualify as a crash bug or a dataloss issue, please put the following info in your bug report on bugzilla.mozilla.org:

  1. Clear steps to reproduce. (if necessary attach an .ics file that shows the issue to the bug)
  2. The version of Sunbird that you’re using and the platform that you’re using it on. This info can be gained via Help -> About Mozilla Sunbird

Thanks for your help!
