Unfortunately it isn't that easy to create Adblock Plus for Thunderbird, though I still want to do this (see http://bugzilla.mozdev.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13008). I downloaded Firemonger, it contains the outdated XPI for Adblock Plus 0.6.0.4. Listing it as a Thunderbird extension is simply an oversight.

I put basic support for Thunderbird on plan for Adblock Plus 0.7.1 (http://adblockplus.mozdev.org/installation.html) - with a question mark however because I don't know yet whether it will be useful at all or whether the Thunderbird bug needs fixing first.

Oh, has 0.6.2 become 0.7?

Yes, I think it is better that way with all the things that changed.

Gasp! You're once again violating the Adblock tradition of not changing the first few digits of the version number! :shock:

Okay. :)

That's probably because I already violated the Adblock tradition of not doing any real changes ;)

True, but now you've violated another tradition. Again. Bad Wladimir. :(

Yes, maybe I should rename Adblock Plus 0.7 back into Adblock Plus 0.6 development build 5 nightly 71, and the current development build into Adblock Plus 0.6 development build 5 nightly 71 beta 2... Well, I don't really have nightly releases but who cares?

That gave me a chuckle. I mean no disrespect for the devs that worked on those, but its still funny.

Yeah. I don't want to offend the Adblock developers, but they do have a crazy versioning scheme. Maybe now that mcm has joined the project, it will change.

[13.01.2006 00:12] <trev> I don't even start talking about "nightlies" that aren't build nightly but pretend instead to be just as risky as Mozilla nightlies
[13.01.2006 00:18] <rue> well, again- this whole thing was originally just a ~10-user deal, and it was sorta fun to word things like that

Unlikely that mcm will be able to change anything...

It might change with Adblock 0.6. Might. Maybe. I hope.

Hmm, this sounds like an example of why you went off and created your Adblock Plus.
