Mozilla users will rejoice today as the highly anticipated update to the open-source email client Thunderbird is released.

The update, imaginatively titled Thunderbird 2 boasts a plethora of new and improved features. Amongst the list is the ability to organise mail with Tagging, Advanced Folder Views, 'find as you type' and Message History Navigation.

Thunderbird 2 will also include support for Windows Vista and an new, streamlined user interface.

The original Mozilla Thunderbird software was one of the most popular open-source projects and was part of The Mozilla Foundation's on-going attempts to redefine the way PC users access email.

To date the original version of Thunderbird has been downloaded over 45 million times, making a not inconsiderable dent in Microsoft's market share for Outlook.

You can download Thunderbird 2 from GetThunderbird.com.
