I decided to take Asa Dotzler's advice tonight and download a pre-1.0 nightly build of Thunderbird.

Right off the bat I see more visual changes than I ever did in the transitions between versions 0.7 and 0.9. As noted over at Neowin, the default Thunderbird skin has been updated and looks quite nice. I haven't received any new email since I installed the new build, so I can't yet verify whether the New Mail Notification issue I mentioned here earlier has been fixed or not.

All I can say at this point is that the install process went without a hitch and I'm feeling optimistic about the aforementioned fix. If anything goes wrong over the next couple of days, you know I'll post the details here. In the meantime, you should give the latest nightly build a try as well.

Trust my email to the latest nightly build when 0.8 gave me a major scare? Hm....

Maybe I should add some sort of disclaimer to my post ;)
