Lightning/Sunbird Status Update (July 12)

Hi guys,
another week has gone by and I want to keep you informed about the latest new stuff that is going into the tree. The most notable fix in the last week was the fix for bug 376086, which introduces the multiweek view into Lightning, that all Sunbird users have already known for a long time. The only known limitation at the moment is, that you can only set the number of weeks that should be shown via the preferences dialog. Please help us in testing this and all the other stuff that has gone in lately.

Here’s the list of fixed bugs since the last status update:

  • Bug 262811:
    When hovering a ToDo item long lines of the description doesn’t break into multiple lines
  • Bug 332193:
    agenda shows past and finished tasks
  • Bug 364672:
    Minimonth – Chinese weekday names indistinguishable
  • Bug 369689:
    In day and week views, events ending at midnight cannot be resized to a smaller size using the mouse
  • Bug 373898:
    Rounding issues for grid boxes in calendar multiday view
  • Bug 376086:
    Lightning does not support a multiweek view
  • Bug 382755:
    Lightning fails to process iTIP/iMIP invitations sent by Groupwise server
  • Bug 383991:
    Full SSL support for (Google) Calendars
  • Bug 386483:
    Allday event marks two days bold in minimonth
  • Bug 386505:
    can’t switch to calendar mode using Thunderbird 1.5
  • Bug 387294:
    width of left pane is not set properly at startup
  • Bug 387549:
    bad lineends in sources files

A huge ‘Thanks’ goes out to all our developers, contributors, localizers, testers, and supporters. Keep up the good work!


  1. Just downloaded and installed lightning nightly (2007071203) and the announced multiweek feature ain’t there. Anyone knows why? Thanks.

  2. Simon made this post right after he checked in the code for that bug. Try tomorrows build…

  3. is there a preferred place to discuss potential bugs rather than in Bugzilla?
