Miramar Alpha 1, available here for download, is for testers, extension developers, and other friends who are curious to follow the development of the next release of Thunderbird.

Miramar Alpha 1 is built on top of the next generation of Mozilla’s layout engine, Gecko 2.0 and includes a new Addon Manager and over 190 platform fixes to improve performance and stability. We expect to release further interim releases as we work towards a major new release of Thunderbird.
