Lightning Nightly Updater (Unofficial) 0.11.110714
by Oliver S.
Quickly get to the latest nightly build of Lightning relevant to the version of Thunderbird and the OS you're on.
About this Add-on
Note: If you don't often download Lightning nightly builds (or are happy with a simple download link bloating your browser bookmarks), then this extension is essentially useless to you =)
As far as I know, there are 6 different FTP directories for the latest Lightning nightly builds: For each Tb build (branch, trunk) there is one directory for each OS (Lin, Mac, Win). The extension is supposed to detect which OS and Tb build (version 3.1 or up) you're using, so you get to the relevant download location!

End-User License Agreement
- LNU is in the public domain, except the icon which is Lightning's
- LNU comes with absolutely no warranty, use at your own risk.
- LNU is pretty simple an extension, and not dangerous at all, as far as I know. However, be sure to backup your profile before using a nightly build for they often are on the bleeding edge, meaning that the blood on the edge may well end up being yours. As they say on the Calendar Project web site: "Please be aware, that the use of nightly developer builds has risks associated with it. Don't use them with production data, as data loss and other scary things can occur. We're not kidding". Well that was scary indeed =)
FYI: The stable Lightning builds are there: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/addon/2313
