Sometimes Ranting Is Constructive

Three years after my 2006 rant about the fact that you can’t reorder folders in Thunderbird, the excellent Jonathan Protzenko has written an extension to allow you to arrange them in whatever order you like.

Now all I need to do is figure out how to reduce that 3-year lead time…

  1. Great. Maybe with a few more extensions, Thunderbird can be brought up to the state of the art in email clients from 1992. (That’s not quite as bad as it sounds. Off the top of my head I can only think of one major advance in email client technology since the mid nineties, and bayesian filtering was only made necessary or desirable because of the commercialization of the internet and the rise of spam. Still, it’s not like there’s a shortage of available mail clients.)

  2. @Jonadab: Heck, I’d settle for a 3.0 release, just on the off chance that on my Mac it will stop corrupting the IMAP index files and requiring a force-quit/manual-delete/restart cycle every few weeks.
