Thunderbird 0.5 and… errr… “FireFox” 0.8

So, today’s the big day – Thunderbird reaches version 0.5, and FireFox 0.8 finally makes the light of day. And before you look totally befuddled, the browser originally known as Phoenix, then as Firebird, then as Mozilla Firebird, is now (Mozilla) Firefox, and it’s now a registered trademark. It also comes with a rather dandy new icon, which unsurprisingly features a fox.
You can read the press release for more information, plus all manner of blog entries which I don’t have time to link. But in any case, you may want to download the latest version if you haven’t done so already.

  1. Cant get through to download site and mirror.ac.uk doesnt have it yet. Goes nicely with my foxserv apache/perl webserver combo 🙂

  2. WTF. WILL THEY JUST STICK WITH A NAME ALREADY? 🙂
    It will always be Phoenix in my heart. ::tear::
    P.s. If all goes well, the Duck flies AGAIN tomorrow night. :/
