Sunbird 0.3 Released

sunbirdThe full 0.3 version release of Mozilla's calendar application has just been released. The improvements are numerous, and it is very highly recommended that all Sunbird users upgrade. Same thing goes for users of Lightning as well.

For those of you who aren't familiar with these two particular Mozilla offerings, here's the skinny. The
Mozilla Calendar Project is developing two pieces of software side-by-side. Sunbird is a full-blown standalone calendaring application, while Lightning is an extension that brings calendaring functionality to Thunderbird and/or Firefox. Originally these two projects were completely separate and independent, but they have recently been brought closer together in an effort to merge them into a single coherent effort. As of this particular release, Sunbird and Lightning are now running off of the same backend code. This is a good thing.
