Thunderbird 2.0 Released

My email client of choice on Windows – Thunderbird has just reached V2.0

The upgrade was totally painless (and the download very small). It seems a little ‘snappier’, but to my mind the best new feature is Lightning the Calendar add-in and even better the Google Calendar provider for Lightning. This is the first (only ?) to my knowledge bi-directional calendar plugin for Google Calendar. I can now synchronize calendars between my desktop PC at home and the website, even multiple machines (so long as they’re all running Thunderbird).

This is such a great feature that it might even be enough to get me to try out Thunderbird again on Mac OS X – I stuck with Mac OS X Mail because I found Thunderbird 1.x on OS X to be a little sluggish – perhaps that’s improved.
