Thunderbird and Windows 8

The problem is not only if Thunderbird runs on Win8, but also how it is
For instance it seems that:
- there is no special styling for Metro yet, so you'll get the Aero look
- There is currently no TB app for Win 8, so you don't see it on the Metro
Start page, and only if you switch to the familiar desktop environment
- there is no notification of new email on the icon in the start menu.
Is there any Win8 user on this list which could confirm these issues?
