Eudora OSE (Open Source Edition), formerly codenamed Penelope, is an extension for the Mozilla Thunderbird email client software implementing some features of Eudora.

History[edit]

On October 11, 2006, QUALCOMM Incorporated and the Mozilla Foundation announced future versions of Eudora would be based on the Mozilla Thunderbird platform and be open source.[2][3] The codename for this project is "Penelope," with that name being used for the extension provided for Thunderbird, and the Eudora name kept for all-in-one releases. Development began on November 22, 2006 with the first patch being submitted to Bugzilla.[4] Further development of Penelope and Eudora continued, with the first beta version of Eudora 8.0 released on August 31, 2007; the most current releases, Eudora 8.0b9 and Penelope 1.0b1, were released on March 4, 2010.[5][6][7] On June 28, 2013, the Mozilla website at Mozilla website indicated that Eudora OSE is based on an out-of-date version of Thunderbird and that current users should consider switching to Thunderbird. This implies that the project is dead.
