Hello, Steve

Do you mean this?


I'm running the 64-bit version of Karmic (9.10), but I'm a bit nervous 
about committing to TB3 with an unofficial build of Lightning for my 
calendar because I rely on it! So, I'm sticking with TB2+Lightning 0.9

Thanks for the heads up about the 64-bit version of Lightning 1, but 
from what I've read in the 0.9 release notes it looks like Lightning 
will become part of TB3:

"Lightning 0.9 is intended to be the last release for the Thunderbird 2 
series. For the future we are planning to integrate Lightning fully into 
the upcoming Thunderbird 3 release"
