At long last, we have beta 1 candidate builds. If you have time, it would be great to help test these builds before the upcoming beta next week!

Major Feature Areas
*Message Tags

I just tried to add a new tag and it did not work.
Tried with both a fresh profile and a previous 1.5.x profile

side note when more then one tag is selected and the col is shown in the message pane could you wrap seperate tags
ex
Work Important
should ideally be
Work
Important


that way I can set the width of the column to the widest tag name

Looks like a last minute change didn't make it in and broke the ability to add tags :(

You can edit them though.

If you have folders and filters associated with them and opt to delete the folder a warning pops up telling you that the filter will be updated. However, if you go and actually /look/ at the filer afterwards the filter hasn't been changed at all; it points at the (now missing) directory and is still enabled.

Any news on progress with Realtime Black Lists? This is the one feature that would make the most difference to my online experience!

Thanks,

I started using 2b1rc1 and I had a question about the popups. In 1.5.x they had a link that you could click to bring up TB. I don't see it in 2 and I can't figure out how to make that link available again. Is there a reason it was removed? Is there a way to get it back?

We haven't implemented the ability to click on the alert to bring up thunderbird again. It should get fixed before beta 2 though.

FYI, release candidate 2 (RC2) is now available if folks could start using these new builds:

http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/ ... dates/rc2/

This picks up the fix that broke Adding Tags.

Thanks!

Quick question, do the new message alerts work on OSX?

There seems to be something missing in the thread tree.
Shouldn't there be a small graphic for read messages as well as un-read messages?

Scott, I'm seeing serious problems with tags (especially the 5 default tags) in IMAP:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=346394

The original bug actually seems to be resolved, but see comments 3-5. Thanks.
