Version 38 beta has arrived!  Kent blogged with a nicely formatted 
summary 
<https://blog.mozilla.org/thunderbird/2015/04/thunderbird-38-goes-to-beta/> 
of What's New, suitable for tweeting, liking, etc.  For a sorted look at 
where changes occurred use bug list ordered by component 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?bug_status=RESOLVED&bug_status=VERIFIED&bug_status=CLOSED&f0=OP&f1=OP&f10=cf_status_thunderbird_38&f11=CP&f12=CP&f13=OP&f14=OP&f15=cf_status_thunderbird_esr31&f16=CP&f17=CP&f18=OP&f19=OP&f2=target_milestone&f20=cf_status_thunderbird_31&f21=CP&f22=CP&f3=target_milestone&f4=target_milestone&f5=target_milestone&f6=target_milestone&f7=target_milestone&f8=target_milestone&f9=cf_status_thunderbird_38&j1=OR&j14=OR&j19=OR&o10=substring&o15=notsubstring&o2=substring&o20=notsubstring&o3=substring&o4=substring&o5=substring&o6=substring&o7=substring&o8=substring&o9=substring&query_format=advanced&resolution=FIXED&v10=verified&v15=fixed&v2=Thunderbird%2032&v20=verified&v3=Thunderbird%2033&v4=Thunderbird%2034&v5=Thunderbird%2035&v6=Thunderbird%2036&v7=Th%0Aunderbird%2037&v8=Thunderbird%2038&v9=fixed&limit=0&list_id=12148232&columnlist=component%2Cbug_severity%2Cshort_desc&order=component>.

This email brings to you two easy requests :

- 38 Beta users and eventually release users will generate more bug 
reports and support requests, so a couple minutes per week of your time 
helping users in SUMO 
<https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/thunderbird> or recent new 
unconfirmed bugs 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?f1=short_desc&list_id=12148565&o1=nowordssubstr&resolution=---&classification=Client%20Software&classification=Components&chfieldto=Now&query_format=advanced&chfield=[Bug%20creation]&chfieldfrom=21d&f2=OP&bug_status=UNCONFIRMED&product=MailNews%20Core&product=Thunderbird&columnlist=component%2Cbug_severity%2Cbug_status%2Cshort_desc&order=component> 
over the next 2-3 months will be *fantastic***. Pick a bug or support 
request or two, and help it on it's way.  More eyes will more quickly 
surface important issues to developers, so they can be handled in a 
timely manner. (For a bigger perspective of the issues being worked see 
recent new confirmed and closed bugs 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?f1=short_desc&list_id=12148574&o1=nowordssubstr&classification=Client%20Software&classification=Components&chfieldto=Now&chfield=[Bug%20creation]&query_format=advanced&chfieldfrom=21d&f2=OP&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&bug_status=RESOLVED&bug_status=VERIFIED&bug_status=CLOSED&product=MailNews%20Core&product=Thunderbird&columnlist=component%2Cbug_severity%2Cbug_status%2Cresolution%2Cshort_desc&order=component>.  
And instead of querying for new bugs you may want to set bugzilla to 
watch a Thunderbird product component 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/userprefs.cgi?tab=component_watch> to get 
bugmail for the Untriaged component for example.  Tweak the Component 
column of Email Preferences 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/userprefs.cgi?tab=email> to adjust the 
amount of mail you get.)
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?f1=short_desc&list_id=12148574&o1=nowordssubstr&classification=Client%20Software&classification=Components&chfieldto=Now&chfield=[Bug%20creation]&query_format=advanced&chfieldfrom=21d&f2=OP&bug_status=NEW&bug_status=ASSIGNED&bug_status=REOPENED&bug_status=RESOLVED&bug_status=VERIFIED&bug_status=CLOSED&product=MailNews%20Core&product=Thunderbird&columnlist=component%2Cbug_severity%2Cbug_status%2Cresolution%2Cshort_desc&order=component>
- If you are able, please install and use the beta 
<http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/all-beta.html> to make sure 
everything you know and love is still working.  Then file bugs 
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Thunderbird> and 
notify add-on authors of problems or successes. Reproducible issues 
filed in bugzilla will be especially helpful, including crashes. Be sure 
to identify yourself as running beta 38, and  remember 38 *is* beta with 
a lot of change so use appropriate precautions.

Your testing, reporting, and aid will help deliver a better product to 
the general public.

Thank you for helping and being part of the Thunderbird community.
