Development on the Thunderbird email app has been ramping up over the past year, with a major “Supernova” update on the way. Mozilla has now outlined the future of Thunderbird in a blog post.
Mozilla released Thunderbird 102 back in June 2022, marking the first phase of a multi-year revamp of the popular mail client. It had a few much-needed setup improvements and bug fixes, as well as some design tweaks. There’s also a more significant update planned for later in 2023, named “Supernova,” which was already teased as a major redesign. However, it’s not just a redesign — the app is being rebuilt “from the ground up.”
