Version 0.4.0 Alpha 1 Released

Version 0.4.0 Alpha 1 has been released.  If you’re already using a pre-release of 0.4.0 it should automatically update, everyone else can get it here (go down to Development Channel at the bottom).  This is an alpha release, meaning it doesn’t have all the features that 0.4.0 will have, and hasn’t been as thoroughly tested as the latest stable version, version 0.3.4.

Changes since version 0.3

Features

  • The first sync merges existing contacts and groups/mailing lists
  • Postal addresses are synchronized by default
  • gContactSync uses Thunderbird’s existing address fields now that Google parses addresses
  • Added Postbox 3 support
  • Minor Accounts dialog changes
  • Prevents a duplicate master password prompt when Thunderbird is started

Bug Fixes

  • Treat infinite last modified dates as being older
  • Fixed a strict JavaScript warning (no functional change)
  • Support for empty extended property value names (Other tab of the Preferences dialog)
  • Prevents a duplicate master password prompt when Thunderbird is started
  • Makes sure that the dummy e-mail address is added to a contact if it is being edited from the mailing list.
