After quite a lengthy development process, the development team behind Thunderbird announced the release of Thunderbird 3.0 Final back in the month of December, 2009. The development team behind Mozilla’s email client has now switched focus on the next iteration of Thunderbird; the team has announced the release of Thunderbird 3.1 codename Lanikai as an Alpha.

“Lanikai Alpha 1, an early version of our next release of Thunderbird, is now available for download. Lanikai is built on top of the Gecko 1.9.2 platform. While this alpha version is considered to be stable, it is intended for developers and members of our testing community to use for evaluation and feedback. Users of this latest alpha version of Thunderbird should not expect all of their add-ons to work properly with this milestone,” announced Mozilla’s Rafael Ebron.


If you decide to get Lanikai Alpha 1, here is what you can expect to get from the application:
  • - Several improvements to IMAP.
  • - Several fixes for Smart Folders, message filters, and attachment handling.
  • - Several design improvements and corrections to the interface.
  • - Download Manager is now accessible as a menu item (Tools > Saved Files).
  • - Stability and memory improvements.

If you would like to get Thunderbird 3.1 “Lanikai” Alpha 1, you can download it straight from Mozilla here.
The software is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux users alike. It is also available in 23 different languages – 22 not counting English. And don’t forget to check out the release notes.

Wondering what the codename Lanikai means? Here’s the lowdown: Lanikai is a Hawaiian beach located on the windward coast of Oahu (the third largest of the Hawaiian Islands). It is a small beach, measuring just half a mile (that’s about 800m, for the European reader). But it is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
