I thought that TB wasn't being supported anymore...?

It's still being supported. According to: »blog.mozilla.org/beyond-the-code···derbird/ just nothing major is being added to it. Other than security stuff, what else really needs to be done to it?

Heck, I still use software made by companies that don't even exist anymore because the software does what I need it to do.

Based on the release notes:
»www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbir···senotes/ Mozilla will continue to support T-Bird, at least us that use T-Bird as an email client surely hope so.
Just my .02

Well, that's good to know. I hadn't put it on my current laptop because I was switching around ISPs and didn't want to bother with adding and deleting email accounts, but TB has always been my preferred email software.

Linux users:

quote:
Lightning is no longer working with Thunderbird 24.0.1. This is totally unexpected for us, it seems Thunderbird 24.0 and 24.0.1 are not binary compatible. We will be releasing Lightning 2.6.1 this week to fix the issue and afterwards find out how this could have happened.

If you are using Lightning 2.6, please downgrade to Thunderbird 24.0 for now and you will regain access to Lightning and your calendars.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Update 1: This seems to be a Linux-only issue. Windows and Mac users can safely upgrade to Thunderbird 24.0.1!

That is correct. I'm running TB 24.0.1, as well as lightning 2.6 on a Windows system, and have no issues at all. The upgrade went without any problems, and all my calendar entries are still present.
