Thunderbird Conversations now stable

jprotzenko

We released Thunderbird Conversations 2.0 a few days ago! Thunderbird Conversations, as the name implies, is a Thunderbird addon that equips your favorite email client with a conversation view. We worked on both Thunderbird and Conversations, hence the two simultaneous releases: Thunderbird Conversations 2.0 goes with Thunderbird 5.0.

Naturally, a lot of bugs were uncovered during the first few days, so I had to release 2.0.1, then 2.0.2, then 2.0.3. 2.0.4 hasn’t been pushed yet, which means things have been getting more quiet…

Highlights include:

  • a quick reply feature,
  • tight integration with your Thunderbird workflow,
  • contact tooltips,
  • support for viewing a conversation in a tab,
  • integration with other extensions (enigmail, lightning),
  • quote collapsing,
  • and many more.
