Thunderbird 3 beta 1 string freeze now in effect

As Mark Banner points out, Thunderbird is string-frozen for its beta 1 release as of 23:59 PDT yesterday. This means that any l10n strings in the mail/ and editor/ui directories in the comm-central repository are now frozen.

The code freeze for beta 1 will be on Tuesday 23rd September at 23:59 PDT.

There are a number of new features we landed just before the string freeze, some of these still need some polish, more details about them later.

We will be having a test day for beta 1 on Thursday 18th September. It will be covering the new features and checking for any significant regressions before we hit the code freeze date, more details coming soon.

Is there any translations requirements? I mean, do we need to translate sunbird in order to opt-in into the release?

I am quite far from completing the translation for he locale; Do you have any tips how to make the translation faster?

Hi Tomer,
please see my followup post on this issue. In short: You don't need to translate the calendar-related strings for beta1.
