Thunderbird 91 will be the next version of Mozilla's mail client and will arrive with notable news

Thunderbird 91

If I were to say that I am an unconditional fan of the Mozilla email client, I would be lying like a rogue. But I do have to admit that it is an off-road vehicle, and what it does not do after the installation of zero it can do with some extension. For example, with TbSync and Provider for CalDAV & CardDAV I can manage my iCloud calendar, something I did in Vivaldi, but… it has stopped working. Currently, the thunder bird is on version 78, but soon it will come Thunderbird 91.

Will it be such an important update to make a jump of thirteen numbers? Well, in this regard, it seems that Mozilla's intention is for the numbering to match that of their web browser, Firefox. But yes, it will be a major update with outstanding news. One of them will add support for CalDAV calendars, so the two extensions that I am currently using will no longer be necessary. Of course, I think that, at least for iCloud Calendar, the configuration is not so simple; with the extensions it was enough to put the application username and password, and in Thunderbird 91 we will have to put the address manually.

Thunderbird 91 will support CalDav calendars without extensions

Among the news that will arrive with Thunderbird 91, we have:

  • Support for CalDAV calendars.
  • New configuration wizard.
  • Possibility of importing contacts.
  • Encryption settings.
  • Possibility of importing / exporting profiles.
  • Visual improvements.
  • New undo or redo option.

Thunderbird 91 is the biggest update of this 2021, so the usual improvements such as bug fixes will also be included. It will arrive next week, probably on Tuesday, near the launch of Firefox 91. Who is interested in trying it, it is already available on the Mozilla server, which we can access from this link. If we decide to keep what our distribution offers, we will have to wait at least two more days.

    I am very disenchanted with the Vivaldi calendar and tired of it asking me every new session to log into Google, in case it does not save cookies, and that is not going to happen. Now I am between Firefox, with my problems with the captchas of Google and Vivaldi.

    No extension needed to use calendars with CalDav in Thunderbird for years.
    All you have to do is open the calendar, click on "new calendar" and in the option "calendar on the net" you already have the CalDav option directly.

      Not so with iCloud. In '91 it will work.

    and we continue with the same graphic aspect, well we can put colorines in the toolbar, I suppose that mozilla / firefox have a great and enormous job, but except that now the calendar is a little more complicated, which is the advantage of thuder 91?
