TBird 3 (Shredder) Alpha 2 Released

Since I want to see how the whole message tagging system worked on TBird 3 (Shredder), so I went ahead downloaded and installed TBird 3 Alpha 2. This is it for the Thunderbird 3 Alpha builds. After I got Alpha 2 installed I changed over to the ‘Nightly’ Update Channel and downloaded Shredder/3.0b1pre. Cain’t say I am too thrilled with the new logo…

  1. That’s actually a really old logo. They used it a long time ago and must be using it again for trunk development.

  2. Sure hope they are just using it for the trunk development. Looks more like a swan than a Thunderbird to me.
