It's an early Christmas for me this year. Minotaur has been officially launched!
There are no official builds yet, but they should be available in the next few days. For more information, check out the main Minotaur page, which has been updated with more project information.
Unofficial win32 build (by J. Michael Katip?) is available at http://www.katip.net/~thunderbird/
can i trust this build already to do my mail? it want corrupt my mailboxes? i've been waiting so long!
Yep, Minotaur seems pretty stable. It's got a few UI issues but I've been using it all day with my three email accounts (2 POP and 1 IMAP) and it's been good so far.
This might be a very silly question, but I'll ask it nevertheless. Will I be able to access my Hotmail account in Minotaur/Thunderbird?
