I am happy to present you Lightning 1.0b7, our stable release compatible with Thunderbird 7. This is the first release in a long time that has been created using release automation. While it took a bit longer to set up this time, we hope that its very easy to produce subsequent builds with it, leaving more time for actual coding instead of release engineering work.
Lightning 1.0b7 contains 39 fixes to the last release, which was two months back. You can find a full list of changes here.
You can get the release from addons.mozilla.org for all platforms.
Note this is the last release before Lightning 1.0, which is due in 6 weeks, so please be sure to report all bugs you find on our bugtracker at bugzilla.mozilla.org (please search before you file a bug).
If you are using a localized version, please also report localization errors in the respective locale here.
A short note on the release process for 1.0, we will be releasing a number of release candidates that will become the final builds. I’ll do an extra blog post on this soon.
