Thunderbird Conversations is an add-on for Thunderbird that provides a conversation view for messages. It groups message threads together, including those stored in different folders, and allows easier reading and control for a more efficient workflow.
Over the last couple of years, Conversations has been largely rewritten to adapt to changes in Thunderbird’s architecture for add-ons. Conversations 3.1 is the result of that effort so far.
The new version will work with Thunderbird 68, and Thunderbird 78 that will be released soon.
The one feature that is currently missing after the rewrite is inline quick reply. This has been of lower priority, as we have focussed on being able to keep the main part of the add-on running with the newer versions of Thunderbird. However, now that 3.1 is stable, I hope to be able to start work on a new version of quick reply soon.
More rewriting will also be continuing for the foreseeable future to further support Thunderbird’s new architecture. I’m planning a more technical blog post about this in future.
If you find an issue, or would like to help contribute to Conversations’ code, please head over to our GitHub repository.
We’ve just released a new Thunderbird Conversations (previously know as Gmail Conversation View) with full support for Thunderbird 52. We’re sorry for the delay, but the good news is it should now work fine.
I’d like to thank Jonathan for letting me help out with the release process, and for all those who contributed to release or filed issues.
The add-on should work with the current Thunderbird Beta versions (56), but won’t currently work in Daily (57) due to some compatibility issues. We’re hoping to get those resolved in the next week or so.
If you want to help out with future releases, then find the source code here and come and help us with supporting users or fixing issues.
A few weeks ago I made some changes to my account with my ISP and was expecting to loose my webspace (intentionally, due to a better deal all round). At the time I started getting a new blog set up.
As it turns out, and as you can see, this blog is still here. However, I’ve decided to move all my Mozilla & Thunderbird related posts to the new blog anyway.
I haven’t quite decided what to do with this old blog yet. For now, it’ll just serve as an archive for my old posts; I may do some more personal posts at some stage and re-purpose it, but I need to think about that more first, so we’ll see.
