String freeze for Thunderbird 3.1 beta2 and Thunderbird 3.1 (final release) was yesterday (April 20 2010)

I just wanted to remind everyone, that the string freeze for Thunderbird 3.1 beta2 and the Thunderbird 3.1 final release went into effect yesterday, Tuesday April 20 at 23:59 PST.

I am planning to accept sign-ins up until Monday April 26th pacific time for the beta2 release. For the final release the sign-in period will be a few weeks longer. I can't tell you at the moment how long, but expect at least 4-5 more weeks.

Please use the new sign-in functionality in the l10n dashboard to become part of these releases. Currently you can only sign-in for the 3.1 beta2 release. I'll open up the sign-in possibility for the final release soon.

UPDATE:
Four bugs didn't make it in time for the string freeze. Those are bug 545469, bug 545955, bug 505035 and bug 394687. I've added the late-l10n keyword to all those bugs and asked the responsible developers to inform the l10n community once those strings have landed.
