Mozilla unveils Lightning roadmap

Filed under
Software

The Mozilla Foundation has published an initial roadmap for 'Lightning', the project to integrate its calendar application Sunbird with its email application Thunderbird. Sunbird has been available as a separate extension for Firefox and Thunderbird for a while, but there's been little integration between calendar and email functionality.

The team working on Lightning — a code name, rather than an official product name at present — hope that the integration of scheduling and tasks with Thunderbird's email capabilities will make the combined application more attractive to corporate users, although they're not specifically targeting Microsoft Outlook.

Full Story.
