redbox informēja, ka tik tikko ir parādījusies The Bat! v2.02 Christmas Edition 3 272KiB. Tā ir kā tradīcija, ka neilgi pirms Ziemassvētkiem iznāk Christmas Edition.
Izmaiņu saraksts kā vienmēr ir diezgan liels – vīri ir pacentušies godam. Vienīgi pēdējā laikā esmu novērojis nelielu migrāciju – vieni pāriet uz citiem komerciāliem produktiem citi uz bezmaksas, piemēram, Mozilla Thunderbird. Tā kā mani pagaidām apmierina The Bat!, tad nedaudz paskatīšos un pagaidīšu, kad uzlabos zibensputnu, jo pagaidām tam vēl nav tik daudz iespēju un galvenais – pārāk bremzīgs e-pasta klients. Tas gan ir raksturīgs visiem Mozillas produktiem. Laiks visu saliks pa vietām.
