As mentioned in David’s blog post, we’re using Lanikai as the code name for the Thunderbird 3.1 branch.
Last week we transitioned our Thunderbird 3.1 nightly builds to be building with Gecko 1.9.2 and to have the Lanikai code name. We’re still missing some new images for the branding, but hopefully they will come soon.
In tandem with the setting up of Lanikai builds, we’ve also set up new trunk builds with Gecko 1.9.3. These builds currently have the version number “3.2a1pre” – this does not mean that the release after Thunderbird 3.1 will be called Thunderbird 3.2, it is just the lowest increase that we need to implement at this stage to be something different from 3.1.
Trunk builds are retaining the Shredder branding but will hopefully get new images at some stage.
At the moment, these builds are pretty much the same as the Lanikai builds from the Thunderbird perspective. It is only the core files that are different.
For Developers / Other interested parties
The Lanikai and Thunderbird 3.2 builds are both generated using the comm-central repository (this has not been branched yet).
Thunderbird 3.2 builds are using the core mozilla-central repository.
Lanikai builds are using the mozilla-1.9.2 repository (specify
client.py to pull that repository).
The branch date for comm-central into comm-1.9.2 has not yet been agreed, iirc it is likely to happen around about the first Lanikai preview build, more on that later.
