It's been a while coming, but Mozilla have finally released the first public preview version of Thunderbird 2, for Windows, Mac and Linux users. I've been using this version for the last couple of weeks, without any major issues, so it's going to be fine for the majority of clued-up Thunderbird 1.x users.
Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0 beta 1 ships with a number of features, although few of them are very obvious. The first thing you may notice is that the interface has received a minor revamp. The filtering system has seen a few improvements and there are many other minor features. Others will be enhanced closer to the final release. For a list of the new features, check out the release notes.
If you're a new Mozilla Thunderbird user, we suggest you wait for the release candidate. If you're an existing user, it might be worth checking out the new release.
