  1. Great work! Thanks
    Can’t wait to see the windows tinderbox work again so we can effectively see the improvements.

  2. Well, that’s a lot of bugs. THanks for the list.

  3. Wow, you guys totally rock. 3 cheers for the Sunbird team! Seriously, if any of you are in NYC, I’ll buy y’all a drink.

  4. Where can I download the latest build? has some thunderbird builds instead of lightening.xpi’s…

  5. Ezh: check the windows-xpi subdir. (or any of the others if you don’t use windows)
