mozdev Update (Free project hosting for Mozilla applications and extensions)
by David Boswell
The pledge drive has been a huge success. In just one month we have raised over 4 times our original goal of $2500. The community has been a huge help to us and I wanted to thank everyone again for contributing to mozdev. Look for more information soon about how much has been raised and what our plans are going forward.
In related news, the new server that was purchased with money from donations is now being used for the site. The new server is in use but not
all of the services are available right now. The initial services available are Apache and CVS with mailing lists and newsgroups to follow next.
Bugzilla, CVSWeb and other services will come online after that.

- Display of Junk Mail Filter Statistics (contents of training.dat).
Fixed Mnenhy bugs:
- Customizing the mail headers for composition via the Mnenhy preferences panel does not require restarting MailNews anymore.

For the latest release information check out the version history page.
Mozex Update (External programs integration)
by Tomas Styblo
Mozex 1.00 has been released. Mozex is an extension which allows the user to use external programs for these actions:

- handle mailto, news, telnet and FTP links
- download files
Mozex works with both Mozilla and Firebird. Currently only the *NIX versions of these browsers are supported. Please contact the author in

- Clickable references (Mnenhy 0.2 or higher needed)
- Works with Thunderbird
- Settings-Dialog: (See chrome://messageidfinder/content/pref-messageidfinder.xul)

MessageID-Finder is a addon for the mozilla mail/news-client (also for Thunderbird) which helps you to find the message to a certain
messageid. You could use it within message view, source view and message header.
Tinderstatus Update (A statusbar icon showing current tinderbox state)
by Myk Melez
Tinderstatus for Mozilla Firebird is now available.
Install this XPI to watch the Mozilla Firebird tinderboxen. Note that you can install both Tinderstatus XPIs (the original for Seamonkey and
this new one for Mozilla Firebird) to watch both sets of tinderboxen at once.
XULMaker Update (Visual XUL editor)
by Franklin de Graaf
Version 0.50 of XULMaker was released early this morning - no fanfare, everyone was sleeping. Sleep
no more, wake up to this "visual XUL application builder" that will herald much fanfare as the XUL development community acquaints itself with
this powerful XUL application development tool.
NeedleSearch Update (Enables users to add/delete own searchengines)
by Eelco van Kuik
A new version of NeedleSearch is out: version 2.1 It is now possible to start a search from the context window. This is very useful if you would like to search for i.e. translations of words in text in your browser window. The project got help on the development side this time from Darren Tarbard. He assigned a keyboard shortcut for quickly showing and hiding the toolbar and made a text version of the toolbar. Because of all these issues the preferences window has been reintroduced again where you can alter the NeedleSearch Toolbar settings.
Bugzilla is activated for NeedleSearch now as well, so everybody can from now on insert their issues in Bugzilla. This way it is easier for everybody to keep track of requested new functionality and reported bugs on the other hand. Some bad news too: not all translators translated the text for the new functionality. If you see English text in your translation and would like to have it translated, please contact me. Have a look at the website for more information on how to use these new functionalities.
