New thunderbird build for linux

We are still/again trying to get our patch integrated into the mozilla source tree. And since this required a new patch and as such a new development environment we decided to release a new thunderbird build for linux. This build will hopefully be the last before we can use the regular builds (cross my fingers).
This build is accompanied by a new opsemail plugin (0.1.2) that has been made compatible with the current thunderbird version and enables the automagic updates so that following releases can be updated through the update service build into thunderbird.

OpsTimesheet client for Mozilla Lightning

As promised, we just released a OpsTimesheet client for Mozilla lightning. This release is fully functional but has not got the neat tooltips with project information. This is due to the fact that lightning uses a new gui without tooltips. None the less we will try to reintroduce this as soon as possible. The plugin can be downloaded from our download page at sourceforge ( as usual. Please remember to upgrade your projectserver to version 0.2 before trying this plugin.

OPS status update!

It's been quiet on the news front. We have been busy working on OPS though! Here's a quick update:

* OpsEmail *
The performance issue with the IMAP server is fixed by introducing an IMAP proxy. This is basically a server that listens to the IMAP port and keeps a cache of the relationship between an e-mail and a project folder. All the usual IMAP commands are passed downstream to the actual IMAP server, except for those that took too much time.
Searching IMAP for the relation is a performance hog (searches of upto 30 seconds were common), so we are very happy with this cache!
Both the Thunderbird (desktop) and the Squirrelmail (web) client plugins work very well. OpsEmail is ready for realworld usage. Go go go :)... read more
