Eudora (formerly: Penelope) – an extension for the Mozilla Thunderbird email client software implementing some features of Eudora.

It is a re-imagining and re-implementation of classic Eudora features on top of the Mozilla Thunderbird codebase. It is more than just an extension, as certain functionality required changes to the core of the application. Some of these have been accepted into and become part of Thunderbird, while others are still awaiting acceptance. Eudora OSE integrates so tightly with specific versions of the underlying code that it is highly recommended for users to install the entire application, rather than trying to run the extension on top of Thunderbird.

Eudora OSE offers users the classic look and feel of the toolbars and menus they’re used to, plus more powerful interface customization than ever before.

On September 13, 2010 Eudora OSE 1.0 was released, which was based on Mozilla Thunderbird 3.0.4. It also was the ;latest version of the application.

The project developer is Qualcomm.

It is a very small, stripped down IRC client. It doesn’t have most of the more advanced commands in the ircII family of IRC Clients, nor does it have any color, but it works, and it’s tiny.
