Dear Thunderbird Team,

      1. This communication is in relation to the “New Address Book”.

      2. Will the “New Address Book”:

         (a) have at least the feature set of CardBook out-of-the-box 
(without third-party add-ons)?
https://gitlab.com/CardBook/CardBook#features

         (b) implement “Bug 1226155 Display view format like Business Card”?
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1226155
https://gitlab.com/CardBook/CardBook/issues/363

         (c) enable Contacts from Microsoft Outlook PST files to be 
imported?
/Office 2010 will reach its end of support on October 13, 2020/
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/office-2010-end-support-roadmap

         (d) display contact photos in email header?

https://addons.thunderbird.net/addon/contact-photos/reviews/1159514/

         (e) enable the CardBook add-on to have a future
https://gitlab.com/CardBook/CardBook/issues/574#note_239627413
https://thunderbird.topicbox.com/groups/addons/T3e37e066e5601525/cardbook-support

         (f) features be listed in the Thunderbird Beta Release Notes?
https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/72.0beta/releasenotes/

         (g) incorporate into Thunderbird the code developed by Philippe 
V., the CardBook add-on developer, and others?
https://gitlab.com/CardBook/CardBook

         (h) enable the Mail Merge add-on, by Alexander Bergmann, to work?
https://addons.thunderbird.net/addon/mail-merge/

      3. Thunderbird Team <noreply at thunderbird.net> email entitled 
“Thunderbird in 2020” states:
/Some of the notable improvements we are working on include://
//* New Address Book/

         (a) Should the “New” be replaced with “Improved”?
“New” does not necessarily mean “Better”
Thunderbird 68 is newer than Thunderbird 60, yet a lot of add-ons don’t 
work and the features are not available in Thunderbird out-of-the-box.

      4. The Thunderbird Status Meeting of 10 December 2019 states:
/* In progress://
//* Address book new API planning/
https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird/StatusMeetings/2019-12-10#Geoff_.28not_attending.2C_9_AM_in_NZ.29

      5. Contacts: The address books API

Thank you and have a Happy New Year!
