Postbox Beta 14, Product Options, and Pricing

July 28, 2009

Beta 14 Now Available

We’re pleased to announce the immediate availability of Postbox BETA 14!  Here’s what’s new and exciting about this release:

  • The popular Lightning Add-on can now be used within Postbox for an integrated calendaring experience.  So you can now download, sync, and view events from your calendar in a new Postbox tab.  Nice!

  • In other add-on news, Zindus has recently released an add-on for Postbox that supports Google and Zimbra contact sync. See our Extensions page for more information about this and other add-ons for Postbox.
  • Windows Vista and Windows 7 users now have a crisp and clean new theme to work with.  In addition to an updated color scheme, we’ve resized, moved, aligned, and pixel pushed this theme to its highest level of polish yet.
  • Conversation Updates - when a new message arrives within a conversation you’re currently reading, Postbox notifies you and allows you to update the conversation.
  • Direct message notifications from Twitter will now show the sender’s Twitter profile picture (if you are signed into Twitter from within Postbox).
  • Easier web service management - Selecting Tools / Web Services… will now let you manage which web services (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) you are logged into from Postbox.
  • Address book contacts have now been incorporated into a newly-styled Contacts Compose Sidebar. Simply click on the contact icon in the sidebar to search through your contacts and mailing lists.
  • We’ve made several performance improvements to message/conversation display, which makes the interface more responsive and snappy.
  • BETA 14 contains a number of reliability fixes, and also includes security updates from the latest Mozilla platform release.

For a full list of changes, please refer to the BETA 14 Release Notes.
