According to the Thunderbird project roadmap (version 1.20), Thunderbird 1.0 is due middle of this month. But with all the hoopla surrounding the Firefox 1.0 release, you’d never have known. I found out simply by dumb luck, not because I was pointed there or because Mozilla.org had announced it anywhere. Sometimes I can’t help but wonder if Thunderbird is always going to be Firefox’s forgotten little brother. I hope not, because Thunderbird rocks just as much as Firefox. I really hope that once Firefox is out the door, serious attention will be paid to marketing Thunderbird as well.
