OK! It's time to update to Thunderbird 102! 👏 🥳
Windows + macOS users: we've enabled manual upgrades from v91 to v102.
Go to ≡ > HELP > ABOUT THUNDERBIRD, and then click the update button! (There may be an interim update to 91.12.0 before you can upgrade to 102)
For our Linux users, we recommend politely asking your favorite distribution when Thunderbird 102 will become available in their software repositories.
@thunderbird Looking forward to the update on Flatpak. Any possibility Thunderbird might adopt ownership of the TB Flatpak?
@CyborgZeta We absolutely plan to take ownership of Flatpak distribution, and we'd like to offer beta options as well.
We only have so many hours and resources, but promise this is on our roadmap.
@thunderbird Thank you for the response. I understand resources and manpower are always limited, particularly with FOSS projects, so don't rush on my account. Just knowing it's on the roadmap is enough for me.
@thunderbird I might give thunderbird a try again given your presence on the fediverse. Evolution is getting kinda "old"
Keep it coming 💪💪
Especially if you need them to work with something like Exchange or MS365 for work accounts 🤷♂️
Currently I use KMail (KOrganizer), but earlier I used both Evolution and Thunderbird for more than a year each and had problems everywhere.

Let's be real: the existence of https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/home proves that not everyone has a flawless experience. And with 20+million active monthly users, a few people will experience some of those bugs.
BUT, as our project continues to grow and is more generously funded by the community (thank you!), we double down our efforts to squash as many bugs as we can!
@thunderbird I had to downgrade again as 102 showed only half of my accounts and didn't allow me to configure them. B"H downgrades on Debian are feasible.
@thunderbird How about you just create an appimage so anyone can run it while we wait for the distros to catch up?
@thunderbird great upgrade, hope to have it on Ubuntu soon. I was wondering if it's possible to add a sender contact photo column in messages list (k9 style), and if contacts can be imported from a google account including contacts photo.
