Glad to hear it, but I'm not sure it is for the best; especially
concerned by this bit:
"As far as the future of Thunderbird is concerned, the following was noted:
The long term plan is to migrate the code to web technologies."
Yuk. I'm using Thunderbird expressly because it is not a stupid web
front end to my email. I have absolutely no desire to give all my emails
to a Mozilla server and be stuck using a crappy web interface inside a
web browser - it will never be as fast and flexible as what we have now.
Forget addOns, for one. First Web Extensions with limited permissions,
and now this...
