I don't know at this point.  I'm hoping that gets figured out sometime, but while we wait, searching bugzilla <https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/buglist.cgi?quicksearch=component:WebExtensions&list_id=12503367> probably isn't a terrible way to keep up.

For hearing about killing XUL, https://mail.mozilla.org/pipermail/firefox-dev/2015-July/003063.html <https://mail.mozilla.org/pipermail/firefox-dev/2015-July/003063.html> seems to be the closest thing I've found, although I seem to remember hearing about it on a few tech-news sites, too…

Later,
Blake.

It isn't being designed to work with Thunderbird, and I'm not even sure they would accept patches that got it working with Thunderbird, since it's attempting to mostly mirror Chrome's API <https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/api_index>.  Most of the objects and functions are web-browser based, but there are ones for creating a few types of UI (Buttons, Panels, stuff like that).
