Changes for v1.0 Beta 7 - v1.0

  • The most important bugfixes in this release are:
  • Full offline support, when the "Cache" is enabled for a calendar
  • Improve diagnostics for the ICS provider
  • Fix the top startup crash. Please give Lightning another try if you previously had issues
  • Some fixes for the alarm system, specifically related to snoozing and recurring events
  • Allow opening events already accepted via invitation
  • Fresh new UI style for all calendar views

Changes for v0.5 - v0.7

  • It is now much easier to switch between the mail and calendar parts of Thunderbird thanks to a user interface redesign.
  • A redesigned event/task dialog has been enabled to gather feedback from the community. It offers a much cleaner user interface and additional functionality including:
    • Events/Tasks can be created in different timezones
    • Attendees can be added from a local or corporate LDAP directory.
    • Free-Busy information is available for users of the Sun Java Calendar Server.
    • Integrated display of recurrence patterns, reminders and attendees
    • Custom recurrences and reminders
    • Clear separation between tasks and events
  • The new event summary dialog lists all the details of tasks and events for calendar which are read-only.
  • The Today Pane gives a quick overview over your current tasks and upcoming events. The Today Pane can be enabled/disabled by a toolbar button.
  • Colliding events (events in the same time slot) are shrunk so that they fit into the display of a day. This no longer affects other events on the same day.
  • Localized releases of Lightning in Chinese (simplified), Georgian, Lithuanian, Portuguese (European), Spanish (Argentina) and Turkish
  • A full list of changes that have gone into this release can be found on The Rumbling Edge website.
