More cool checkins
Three new super cool features has just landed. But remember it's not gonna be included in Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird 1.5.
- Allow external source viewer/editor
A lot of people have been requsting this. Finally it has landed.
- Add a way to generate UUIDs
Would be nice if xpcom provided a way to programmatically generate UUIDs
Wow, one of my first Phoenix bugs finally fixed!Comment by David at November 22, 2005 10:54 AM | Permalink
With 27 bugs still to be fixed before Thunderbird 1.5 (http://tinyurl.com/bqhjs ), I really can't understand the lead devs finding time to implement improvements to the notification of new mail?Comment by Tomm at November 22, 2005 02:51 PM | Permalink
If we all waited for all the bugs to be fixed before anything is released just because one user demands it, there would never be any releases.Comment by ant at November 22, 2005 03:11 PM | Permalink
I'm not demanding anything :)
And I now they can't fix every bug before they release. But the 27 bugs i refer to, are the bugs targeted for the 1.5 release.
I'm not talking about all the open 2788 bugs in bugzilla for Thunderbird.Comment by Tomm at November 22, 2005 03:20 PM | Permalink
The first one will be nice and the second one could be nice, but the third one? Making UUIDs more easily generable is a laudable goal, but I can't honestly see a reason to add a couple KB or so to the build to do so. I think better documentation of the ways to create UUIDs would be a far easier and far better way to do this, assuming the appropriate amount of randomness is available inside the XPCOM environment (which might not be true if my quick scan of Components.classes and Components.interfaces was accurate).Comment by Jeff Walden at November 22, 2005 03:46 PM | Permalink
