First roadmap for Thunderbird3

David Ascher has posted the first roadmap for Thunderbird3. It seems that the main features of Thunderbird3 are calendering, searching, and STEEL. STEEL is an interface for extension developers to make the development easier; it is similar to FUEL of Firefox3. As an extension developer, the STEEL is the most interesting topic for me.

According to the David's plan, first alpha will land on in Q1 2008 and will hopefully be released for users in Q4 2008. It is so tight and it looks difficult to achieve. Anyway, it is pleased thing that I can see the future of Thunderbird. I'm looking forward to the evolution of Thunderbird.
