Les utilisateurs d’une version bêta précédente seront mis à jour vers Thunderbird 52 bêta. Vous pouvez aussi la télécharger en français sur le site de Mozilla.

Thunderbird Main Furry

Malheureusement, des problèmes existent pour macOS (voir ci-dessous).

Le pad de la version 52 répertorie les problèmes remarquables et on appréciera si vous ajoutez les problèmes que vous découvrirez.

Vous pouvez suivre les rapports de bogues déjà régulièrement remplis dans le méta-bogue de la version 52.

Problèmes sous macOS

À cause des problèmes existant sous Mac, les versions 51 et 52 n’ont pas été mises à disposition du public des utilisateurs de Mac. Vous pouvez bien sûr télécharger une version Mac de test et signaler tous les problèmes non encore répertoriés.

Donc sur Mac, Thunderbird peut planter au réveil après un repos si vous utilisez Sierra et n’avez pas mis à jour vers la version 10.12.3. Thunderbird peut aussi planter en recevant un email ou au démarrage si macOS est configuré pour donner l’accès à Thunderbird au contacts Mac. Vous trouverez des problèmes supplémentaires dans le pad.

Et si on trouve un bogue ?

Si vous rencontrez un problème :

  • si ça peut être reproduit en mode sans échec, veuillez remplir un rapport de bogue sur Bugzilla@Mozilla et indiquez clairement si le problème est présent aussi dans une version précédente ;
  • si ça ne peut être reproduit en mode sans échec, veuillez déterminer quel module complémentaire cause le problème et faites une demande d’assistance (pas un commentaire) auprès de l’auteur du module ;
  • si vous avez un problème ou une question d’assistance, vous pouvez poster en anglais et clairement indiquer que vous êtes en version bêta.

Mozilla francophone a aussi un forum d’assistance en français pour Thunderbird et un pour les versions en développement dont Thunderbird bêta.

Notes de version bêta

En plus de la compilation ci-dessous des notes de version bêta depuis Thunderbird 45 (il n’y a pas eu de bêta 46 et 48) 47, 49, 50 et 51, Bugzilla répertorie plus de 450 changements (non compris les problèmes intermittents, de compilation, de portage et de tests) :

    Import settings from Becky! Internet Mail

    In compose, allow separate options for initial mode (Paragraph or Body Text) and behavior of Enter key.

  • New

    Chat: XMPP: Support SASL SCRAM authentication mechanism.

  • New

Changed

  • Changed

    Permanently remove Eudora import.

  • Changed

    Removed compose window recycling.

  • Changed

    Mac OX X 10.6, 10.7, and 10.8 are no longer supported.

  • Changed

    IMPORTANT: Changed recipient address entry: Arrow-keys now copy the pop-up value to the input field. Mouse-hovered pop-up value can no longer be confirmed with tab or enter key. This restores the behavior of Thunderbird 24.

  • Changed

    Formatting toolbar is now left in place when delivery format is switched to plain text only.

  • Changed

    IMPORTANT: The way images are included in a compose window has changed. Images are now included as data URIs and not as references to parts of other messages or operating system files. This allows better interoperability with office packages such as MS Office or LibreOffice. Images linked from locations on the internet will no longer be downloaded and attached to the message automatically. This can be changed for each image individually via the Image Properties dialog or globally by setting the preference mail.compose.attach_http_images.
