Version 0.16.4 190.7 kB Works with SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

Fixed a bug where defined alerts could not be deleted anymore. This was caused by what appears to be an internal interface change, so this fix might have also fixed a few other issues hitherto unknown.

Version 0.16.3 194.0 kB Works with SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

Fixed a bug where alerts were fired for child folders even if the 'alert for child folders' option was not set (Patch submitted by Jon Siddle, thanks!)

Version 0.16.2 193.4 kB Works with SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

- fixed a bug where a wrong variable name was used (alert_data.orig_message_count -> alert_data.message_count)

Version 0.16.1 192.5 kB Works with SeaMonkey 2.0 and later, Thunderbird 3.0 and later

0.16.1
o The final file that I uploaded as 0.16 had missed a few final
cleanup updates and fixes, one of which can cause some messages
not to appear, and the fade out loop problem was still present.
These issues should be fixed in this version.

The changes for 0.16 were:
o Sound playback should no longer be interrupted
o Reworked the internal triggering system; reintroduced delays
to prevent multiple messages in one folder causing multiple
alerts, and fixed the 'double alert' issue for filters. This
should also fix the problem where sometimes alerts weren't
fired at all.
o Removed the call to updateFolder() which may be the cause
of seemingly unrelated caching problems in Thunderbird
o Fixed a looping issue in the closing of fading alerts

it to trash)

and some problems that people have been experiencing should now be
solved.
