LXer: Qualcomm sets the record straight on Penelope (Hint: it's not Eudora 8)

Published at LXer:

Last fall, Qualcomm announced plans to join forces with the developers of Mozilla's Thunderbird email client to produce an open source version of Eudora. Since some code in the original Eudora client is proprietary, engineers needed to rebuild the application from scratch. When the first beta release of Penelope -- a Thunderbird add-on developed by Qualcomm -- was announced this week, many people assumed it was actually a beta release of a new open source Eudora client. Adding to the confusion is the fact that Penelope is not supported on Linux systems. Qualcomm developer Jeff Beckley sets the record straight.
