The Narwhal may have only just gotten a name but it’s already going to please users of Mozilla’s ‘Thunderbird’ e-mail client: Messaging Menu integration is coming.

For the moment users wishing to get Thunderbird messaging menu integration can manually install this admittedly ace extension. This method is hardly taxing but it would be better if the extension was automatically added when a user installs Thunderbird.

Who do we have to thank for this over-due but oh-so-welcome addition? Ubuntu ace Chris Coulson who’s keen to get an extension in tip-top condition ready to go in time for 11.01, stating on IRC that “thunderbird will be in the messaging indicator for sure next cycle”. 

Thanks to the bug crusher extraordinaire ;)
