Thunderbird nightlies are now code-named Daily

September 11th, 2011 Posted in Mozilla, Thunderbird

From around the time of the Thunderbird 3 release, Thunderbird’s trunk nightly builds were code-named Shredder. Following the switch to the rapid release cycle, we’ve now changed these to be code-named Daily.

They’ve got a shiny new logo to go with them as well, which completes the set for our rapid releases:

This change will take place from the next round of nightly builds. You’ll be able to obtain them here (Localised). If you want the slightly more stable builds of Earlybird or Beta, then check out our channels page.

    I already love the new icons ;-) Who does not want to have such a nice little bird ?

    And of course I like the idea of Thunderbird getting release channels.

    Will the Daily build be featured on Thunderbird’s channel page?

    Who created the “Earlybird” logo? It is fantastic!

    I really like the logos and the slight change in colorscheme for the about dialog (of Shredder.)

    The only thing that makes no sense to me: In the about dialog it says “Daily is up to date. You are currently on the *nightly* update channel”

    The icons are great!

    @Nicola we’re looking at creating a special page for the Daily builds – the nightly builds are intended for a more technical audience and have may not be as stable as Earlybird or Beta, hence the greater separation between the two.

    More on the page soon once we’ve got it set up.
