Download sites: Get Lightning or Sunbird Calendar

Lightning

The Lightning extension for the Thunderbird email client can obtained from the Lightning download page.

Stable builds are available prebuilt for Windows32 (2000/XP/Vista), Linux (x86), and Mac OS X (x86/PPC).

Localization: Lightning is localized for the same locales as Sunbird (for a list of locales, see localized Sunbird builds). All these locales are included in the Lightning extension itself, so if Thunderbird displays one of these locales, Lightning should display the same locale.

System requirements are the same as the corresponding Thunderbird system requirements, since Lightning must be installed into Thunderbird.

(Contributed builds may also be available for Linux (x86-64) or OS/2.)

Sunbird

The Sunbird standalone calendar application can be obtained from the Sunbird download page.

Stable builds are available prebuilt for Windows32 (2000/XP/Vista), Linux (x86), and Mac OS X (x86/PPC), and Solaris (x86, SPARC)

Localized builds are available for languages other than English (US). Any build can be localized with the language packs (sunbird -UILocale langCode). (Experimental language packs may also appear at the add-ons site.)

For other operating systems, such as for Linux (x86-64) or OS/2, check the contributed builds.

System requirements.

Experimental Calendar Extension for Seamonkey (CalExt)

The Calendar Extension (CalExt) for Seamonkey is currently not updated by the Calendar project, but one person has made public a patched experimental version that runs on recent versions of Seamonkey (1.1, 1.5a).

Experimental CalExt for Seamonkey

(Lightning does not run on Seamonkey versions which use the "xpfe" library, such as version 1.1. Seamonkey is currently being reimplemented to use the "toolkit" library. Work to enable Lighting to run on Seamonkey may resume when a Seamonkey using the "toolkit" library is ready, maybe version 2.0.)


Background

The Calendar project distributes two closely related prerelease calendar clients. Sunbird is a standalone calendar application. Lightning is an extension for the Thunderbird email client. They share most of their core calendaring, display, storage, and networking features. Sunbird has an additional view (multiweek view) and search (event list). Lightning can receive and send invitations and responses via Thunderbird email.
