Mozilla releases Sunbird and Lighting 0.5

SunbirdIt's been a long time coming, but Mozilla's Sunbird and Lightning calendar programs have hit 0.5. Sunbird is a standalone calendar application, while Lightning is an extension for Mozilla's Thunderbird email program.

While neither program gets as much attention as their big brothers Firefox and Thunderbird, they're pretty robust calendars, and the 0.5 releases include a ton of new features and bug fixes.

  • Refined user interface
  • Automatic migration of data from Sunbird 0.2, iCal, and Evolution
  • Improved printing function
  • Lightning works better with Thunderbird (when it comes to things like copying and pasting or printing)
  • Support for Google Calendar (via the Google Calendar Provider extension)

Sunbird and Lightning 0.5 are available for Windows, OS X, and Linux. Version 1.0 is scheduled for an early 2008 release.
