Localized Lightning Nightly Builds are Back!

Its been quite a long time, but now I am happy to announce that localized nightly builds have returned. The main intent for these builds are to help localizers check if their language changes are correct, but of course anyone can use them.

You can get the builds for the comm-aurora branch or when the network outage is solved then also for the comm-central branch. There is one file per locale.

These builds are just in time for the major release of Lightning 2.6 which will be compatible with the Thunderbird 24 release. After the upcoming merge on June 24th, Lightning 2.6 will be on comm-aurora. If you are a localizer, please take the time to make sure your translations are accurate and ready for the release. If you are a user you can do the same, please report bugs in translation to the Mozilla Localizations product.

Thunderbird and Lightning/calendar bugday³

Thunderbird and Lightning/calendar bugday³

Hello Thunderbird and Lightning/Calendar enthusiasts. We need your help! Help us to make the next “big release” of Thunderbird, Thunderbird 24, the best release ever.

On June 12 skilled help will be available via online chat to assist you, for as little or as long as you like, in doing the following:

  • Help other users by checking their bug reports to see if you can reproduce the behavior of their reported problem
  • Get advice about your own bug report
  • Help users in the support forum to see if a user’s problem needs a bug report

No coding or special skills are required. And you don’t need to be an expert or long term user of Thunderbird or Lightning.  You simply need to be using Thunderbird to help other Thunderbird users. Or a a user of Lightning to help with calendar issue.

Just a little bit of your time will contribute to making Thunderbird and/or Lightning better for yourself and for others. Please see the details at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird:QA_TestDay:2013-06-12

We look forward to having your help , and seeing you online in the chat area.

The Thunderbird QA Team
