Mozilla Japan Visit Notes:

  • Gave a talk on Gecko at Interop-JP.
  • Met with ~100 of the leading ISP providers in Japan where they decided to recommend Thunderbird as their default e-mail client for users. I gave a presentation about the future of Thunderbird and some of the hooks ISPs can use to customize Thunderbird.
  • Met with Daikin (an air conditioning company) which has deployed Thunderbird to 15,000 users. We discussed the roadmap and future feature ideas. They are interested in getting involve in beta testing. They also want roaming support.
  • 7 hours of press interviews. All seven reporters were Thunderbird users including one who is the chief editor of the leading Mac magazine in Japan!
  • Other impressions: Thunderbird is very popular (even the concierges at several of the hotels I stayed at used it). Security doesn't sell over there for some reason.
  • Need Thunderbird stickers.

Gecko 1.9

  • First cut at feature list and priority assignment done
  • Will be working on coming up with an overall focus for the Gecko release, to guide efforts until the release
