    Already a couple of sites pointing to a tinderbox link(why tinderbox idiots) and saying that 2.0a1 is out just because the mozilla 1.8 branch nightlies was changed from 1.5 to 2.0a1

    Those are called test builds. Not the actual release.

    what a heck is this site then?

    Tinderbox builds are test builds, which may contain bugs, developers do not want in the final release. These builds still need to be tested for quality assurance.
    See: http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Tinderbox

    In fact, with Mozilla development, there is a new build made available every day, which contains the previous day’s work. They are made available for testers. For instance, if you go to http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/ you’ll find builds labelled version 1.6a1. There’s a new binary there every day, but they’re all labelled 1.6a1. Even though the build changes every day, the version number stays the same (the build number changes).
    Same goes for Thunderbird:
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/latest-trunk/
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/latest-mozilla1.8/
    http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/thunderbird/nightly/latest-mozilla1.8.0/

    In fact, there are new candidates available for testing. See:
    http://weblogs.mozillazine.org/qa/archives/2006/04/firefox_and_thunderbird_1502_c.html

    Welcome to open source development. 🙂
