Thunderbird 52.1.0 is available now for download and manual updates 
(Help > About) from 52.x and 45.x.

On Monday automatic updates will be enabled for 52.x users. Automatic 
updates for 45.x users will not yet be enabled. (more on that in the 
next email)

We rushed 52.1.0 out earlier than planned to fix a gmail authentication 
issue as noted at 
https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/thunderbird/52.1.0/releasenotes/  Kudos to 
everyone involved in the release process for getting this out in just a 
few days, and over a weekend no less.

gmail authentication workarounds are listed at 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1359297#user-story for 
anyone not wanting/able to update from 45.x or prior versions.
