Mozilla Thunderbird 115 Supernova

Mozilla heeft versie 115 van zijn e-mailclient Thunderbird uitgebracht. De release heeft de codenaam Supernova gekregen. Versie 115 is een zeer grote update voor de mailclient en brengt een vernieuwde, opgefriste interface met zich mee. Deze interface plaatst de berichtenlijst links en de mail zelf rechts, net zoals bijvoorbeeld Outlook dat doet. Ook heeft Thunderbird nu een gecentraliseerde werkbalk bovenin, die je kunt gebruiken om snel acties uit te voeren.

Versie 115 bevat nieuwe iconen, kun je eenvoudig de dichtheid van de interface instellen, heb je meer controle over welke mappen en labels je ziet en is het adresboek verbeterd met een nieuwe tabelweergave en verbeterd bewerken. Er is nog meer nieuws in Thunderbird 115. De volledige changelog vind je hieronder.
