The next version of Mozilla's open source email client hit a second release candidate milestone yesterday.

Thunderbird 3.1's latest RC is now available for Windows, Mac and Linux machines.

Mozilla said the next version of its mail client, codenamed Lanikai, comes loaded with faster search results and a quick filter toolbar, a new migration assistant, a saved files manager and hundreds of added ISP settings.

"The Mail Account Setup Wizard matches against a database of email settings from popular mail providers so that you will only need to provide your name, email, and password to set up new mail accounts," said the organisation.

Thunderbird 3.1, which is based on the Gecko 1.9.2 platform, also comes with improved stability, memory and password handling.

Assuming Mozilla isn't hit by any last minute showstopping bugs, then the finalised version of Thunderbird 3.1 should land within the next week. ®
