Summary: Version 0.3 released. Automatic Login and Session Control
Project: Thunderbird 3 Extension
We are delighted to release version 0.3 of the Thunderbird 3 vtiger CRM 

This release provides a new login & session control system. There should 
now be no need visit the vtiger configuration screen once the extension 
has been properly configured on first run (or when you need to change 
it). The extension should login automatically on startup and keep the 
session live. It does this by storing the time-since-epoch when it first 
logs in and then checking this when necessary. The timer is incremented 
on successful transactions and reset (re-login) after 25 minutes of 
inactivity or more. Please use and report any issues here on the bug 

If you are using a version before 0.2.2, the first time you start this 
version, you will see the first run check. Please accept the dialogue 
and save your setting as normal. After that you will be logged in 
silently when starting Thunderbird.

In addition, The Birthday and Website fields in the Thunderbird Address 
Book are now exported to vtiger Contacts and Leads respectiveley. Thanks 
to Juan Villaverde for these suggested improvements.

This version has also been successfully tested against the Verification 
Build 2 of the forthcoming vtiger 5.2.0 release. Please test further and 
report any issues. This version will probably NOT work against the final 
release of vtiger 5.2.0.


Fixed bug #236 Thunderbird reports: "Error while computing module 
access. INVALID_SESSIONID...". and Feature Request #230 with the 
improved login and session manager.

Implemented Feature Requests #269 & #270 by exporting the Birthday and 
Website fields from the Thunderbird Address Book. The Address Bok 
entries contain 2 fields for website addresses: A Work and a Private. If 
both are filled in, the Work address will take precident.

Implemented minor chnages to support working against the updated 
webservices interface of vtiger 5.2.0VB2.

This version can be downloaded from here: 
http://forge.vtiger.com/frs/?group_id=237 and you are recommended to 
upgrade from earlier releases.
