I’m pleased to announce that the Instantbird folks have finally finished their 0.1 release and it’s now available for download!
It’s very exciting to see something like this happening — perhaps some of the work done in Instantbird could go into making Thunderbird support some IM features? There are still some MPL/GPL issues iirc, but in case those prove to be intractable, there’s also Telepathy, which is an interesting IM project using D-Bus as an abstraction layer (it’s used in Nokia devices, iirc).
Regardless of what happens with Thunderbird, I look forward to seeing Instantbird grow as a project. Hats off to Florian and Quentin!
