Version 68.0 is now released after being in beta for many months with 
about 70,000 users.

Please note it is released but NOT available for automatic or manual 
update. Similar to version 60.0, 68.0's initial rollout is only 
available as a manual download from thunderbird.net 
<https://www.thunderbird.net/> which you then install.  After we receive 
broader feedback and provide updates to 68.0, then normal update 
mechanisms will be enabled.

We encourage you to report problems, give feedback, and ask questions in 
the following ways:
