Nice to see an RC2 release posted as the final version.... and here I thought the final was released.

it doesn't auto-update?

The program's won't auto-update release builds...only the finals when they are posted.

/release/ builds are final.

I think he left out a word, but he is correct about the auto update from "Release Candidates", they will not auto update to "Final" build releases.

it's actually RC2 :cool:

There seems to be some confusion in response to my post:

This is the build ID from the RC2 version (downloaded on 05 April 2007) I was using up until today.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070326 Thunderbird/2.0.0.0 - Build ID: 2007032620

This is the build ID from the file I downloaded from the above link this morning:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070326 Thunderbird/2.0.0.0 - Build ID: 2007032620

As you can see they are the same. Apparently the RC2 build was good enough so it was released as "Final" without any changes.

*/thunderbird/releases/2.0.0.0/win32/en-US/Thunderbird%20Setup%202.0.0.0.exe 06-Apr-2007

I can only assume it's the same build as RC1 but I'll grab it anyways.
