The Sunbird Project is a redesign of the Mozilla Calendar component.
The goal is to produce a cross platform standalone calendar application based on Mozilla's XUL user interface language.

At the moment the "Sunbird" name is a project name. It is not official and may change in the future.

Our intended user is someone who uses Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird and wants a calendar application based on Mozilla.

In addition, by focusing solely on standalone calendar, we believe we can make some dents in the overall footprint and performance of the calendar application by removing components and chrome we don't need.

At the moment Sunbird is in an experimental stage. Although it is quite stable, we recommend it for testing purposes only.

What's New:
Sunbird 0.3 alpha2 is not intended to be a production-quality release. Instead, it is being released largely in order to showcase/test the advanced new view code. This includes:
Inline editing of event titles
Restoration of drag and drop editing in the day/week views
 In addition to showcasing and testing the new views, Sunbird 0.3 alpha2 aims to fix many bugs identified in Sunbird 0.3a1. Some highlights are:
Ability to modify individual elements of a recurring event
Fewer import/export errors
Better error reporting
Improved alarm functionality
A new, more intuitive New Event dialog
Better Mac support
Many other minor bug fixes.
