Lightning Updates 1.0b5 RC Builds

There has been two updates to Lightning today, 1.0b5rc2 & 1.0b5rc3. These releases candidates addressed:

  • Alarm window disappearing
  • Misplaced beeps from the alarm system.
  • Some calendars are no longer working (specifically, webcal:// calendars).
  • Support for Thunderbird 5.0 and 6.0

The final release of 1.0b5 is expected in the next couple days and will have 10 bugfixes. For more information and to download the update click here.

Lightning 1.0b4 will not work with Thunderbird 6.0 Beta, even if forced. However, the current RC builds of Lightning 1.0b5 do support Thunderbird 6.0 Beta and it appears will work the current Provider for Google Calendar 0.8 (which will need to be forced to work with Thunderbird 6.0).

  1. Have you really tested it ? On mine nothing is functional.
    None of the calendars appear even if lightning is launched.
    The tab as no name and i cannot create a new one.

    • Yes, it is working for me fine on Thunderbird 6.0 Beta. What you are describing is the behaviour with the old 1.0b4 builds. I have not tried this in Thunderbird 7 Earlybird or Thunderbird 8 Daily.

  2. Everything seems to work for me except inviting others to a meeting. At which point I receive

    CalDAV: Calendar [calendarname] doen’t support scheduling; freebusy query not possible

    This had been working prior to the upgrade and continues to work on other machines. I am running lightning 1.0b5 in Thunderbird 5.0 on a linux machine. Any ideas?
