Dear Thunderbird Team,
1. This communication is in relation to the “New Address Book”.
2. Will the “New Address Book”:
(a) have at least the feature set of CardBook out-of-the-box
(without third-party add-ons)?
(b) implement “Bug 1226155 Display view format like Business Card”?
(c) enable Contacts from Microsoft Outlook PST files to be
/Office 2010 will reach its end of support on October 13, 2020/
(d) display contact photos in email header?
(e) enable the CardBook add-on to have a future
(f) features be listed in the Thunderbird Beta Release Notes?
(g) incorporate into Thunderbird the code developed by Philippe
V., the CardBook add-on developer, and others?
(h) enable the Mail Merge add-on, by Alexander Bergmann, to work?
3. Thunderbird Team <noreply at thunderbird.net> email entitled
“Thunderbird in 2020” states:
/Some of the notable improvements we are working on include://
//* New Address Book/
(a) Should the “New” be replaced with “Improved”?
“New” does not necessarily mean “Better”
Thunderbird 68 is newer than Thunderbird 60, yet a lot of add-ons don’t
work and the features are not available in Thunderbird out-of-the-box.
4. The Thunderbird Status Meeting of 10 December 2019 states:
/* In progress://
//* Address book new API planning/
5. Contacts: The address books API
Thank you and have a Happy New Year!
