zindus end of life

The zindus add-on is coming to the end of it’s life.

I’ve written about the reasons for why I’m winding back my involvement with the addon here:
http://moniker.net/2013/07/10/two-open-source-emails-a-day-for-five-and-a-half-years/

The current release of the add-on won’t be updated unless any security or stability issues emerge.

And when Thunderbird 24 is released around 17th of September 2013, the add-on won’t upgrade.

The add-on is 100% open-source and on github.
If anyone is interested in taking over the maintenance, drop me a line.

Options for continuing to sync with Google are:

For folk, who sync with Zimbra, sorry!

If you’re a Postbox user, you won’t notice any immediate impact.

I want to give special thanks to the translators of the addon:
Daniel Kaneider (de-DE / German), Fran Diéguez (gl-ES Galician / Galego), myahoo and jojaba (fr-FR French / Français), Ruggero (it-IT Italian / Italiano), Luiz (pt-BR Portuguese/Português), Joost de Bruijn (nl-NL Dutch / Nederland), fik (cs-CZ Czech / Česky), Nazar Pelenjo (uk-UA Ukrainian / украї́нська мо́ва), LG (hu-HU Hungarian / Magyar), and Mikael Hiort af Ornä (sv-SK Swedish / Svenska).

Also thanks to the many users of the add-on who have given of their time and effort debugging issues so that things can be easier for the next person.
