Mozilla Updates Thunderbird to 3.1.10

April 29, 2011

In addition to the Firefox release I mentioned in the previous post, Mozilla has also released a new version, 3.1.10, of its Thunderbird E-mail client, for all platforms (Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows).   This release includes fixes for several security and stability bugs; more information is in the Release Notes.

You can get the new version using the built-in update mechanism (Help -> Check for Updates); alternatively, you can download an installation package (in a variety of natural languages) here.   Because of the security fixes included, I recommend installing the new version as soon as you  conveniently can.


Mozilla Releases Firefox 4.0.1

April 29, 2011

Mozilla has released a new version, 4.0.1, of its Firefox Web browser for Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows.  The new version fixes some bugs that affected the browser’s stability; it also fixes two serious security vulnerabilities.  More information about the changes is available in the Release Notes.

Because of the security fixes in this release, I recommend that you update as soon as you conveniently can.  You can get the new version via the built-in update mechanism (Help -> About Mozilla Firefox -> Check for Updates), or you can download an installation package here.

For those users who are still running Firefox 3.6.x, Mozilla has also released a new version 3.6.17 with security and stability updates, which is available here.  Since Mozilla intends to discontinue support for the 3.6.x browsers later this year, I do encourage you to update to version 4 as soon as you can.
