TorBirdy 0.1.4: Fifth Beta and Bug Fix Release
We are happy to announce the release of TorBirdy 0.1.4, our fifth beta release. This is a bug-fix release, which fixes an issue with TorBirdy 0.1.3 that prevents Thunderbird from starting if three or more than three IMAP accounts are configured. This was reported by users in several tickets (#14099, #13982, #13722, #14007, #14130) and affects all platforms.
Changes in TorBirdy 0.1.4
0.1.4, 09 March 2015
* Fix bug that prevented Thunderbird with TorBirdy 0.1.3 from starting
in profiles with more than three IMAP accounts (closes #14099, #13982,
#13722, #14007, #14130)
This bug was due to a variable in a for lop that was declared twice and was affecting the enumeration of an outer loop (lines 521 and 531 in components/torbirdy.js) used to iterate over IMAP accounts. Please see commit 625f80e in the TorBirdy repository for the fix.
Users who are not affected by this issue (less than three IMAP accounts configured) may also upgrade but note that this release does not introduce any new features.
